Auto-Populate Single Value for Lookups

If there is only one correct value for an attribute, it is possible to auto-populate the attribute with that value.

Auto-population of values with attributes that have only one possible value simplifies data entry since the user doesn't need to go through the process of choosing the item from the drop-down list. There is an extension for defining this feature.

 com.reltio.plugins.ui.LookupAutocomplete

It uses two arrays:

  • includeAttributes: The list of attribute types that have this feature.
  • excludeAttributes: The list of attribute types do not have this feature.
Table 1. Properties
Name Type Attributes Description
point String   ID of the configuration extension point. It must be "com.reltio.plugins.ui.configuration".
ID String   Extension ID "com.reltio.plugins.ui.LookupAutocomplete".
includeAttributes String Array <optional> List of attribute types for which the lookup value autocomplete must be on.
excludeAttributes String Array <optional> List of attribute types for which the lookup value autocomplete must be off. Ignored if "includeAttributes" is present.

Example

{
 "point": "com.reltio.plugins.ui.configuration",
 "id": "com.reltio.plugins.ui.LookupAutocomplete",
 "includeAttributes": [...attrURI... ]
}
