Scope: a managed application, a mobile application.
1. Classifiers are represented by catalogs and information registers containing conditionally constant data, which is similar for all shared infobases. The classifier examples are Bank classifier, World country classifier, Currency classifier, UOM classifier, Address classifier, and other.
When you use the Data conversion tool to exchange data among various configurations, follow these classifier synchronization recommendations.
2. Map data of object type classifiers (for example, world countries, UOM, and other) by unique reference IDs. If such method fails, continue mapping by search fields (automatic mapping mode). To do this:
- In the object conversion rule, set the following properties:
- Find the destination object by the internal source object ID.
- Continue searching by search fields if no destination object is found by ID.
- Specify property conversion rules used as search fields. For example, BIC for bank classifiers.
- If necessary, define the "Search fields" OCR handler code if you deal with a complicated object identification scenario.
Otherwise, classifier data is duplicated, since catalog items, which are similar in the application context, generally have different reference IDs in different infobases.
3. Data of classifiers represented by record sets (for example, address classifier) cannot be involved in the data exchange. Data of these classifiers must be filled in and updated separately in each infobase, for which data exchange is configured. It allows you to avoid excessive migration of data of these classifiers upon data exchange.
