Data type of the primary key
When you create a new data group, you have the option to select "Integer" or GUID for the data type of the primary key. If the "Integer" option is chosen, the primary key data field will be created with the integer data type, which is the default. If the GUID option is chosen, then the primary key data field will be created as a string. A GUID will be generated for each record and stored in the appropriate field. The primary key data type options can only be selected during the initial setup of the data group. If you switch to another tab in the properties dialog, the options will no longer be available. The setting for the data type of the primary key is saved in the file "manager.properties".
Owner of the data record
In this list, a data field that contains the ID of the owner of the data record can be selected.
No tenant filter
This means the data of the data group will not be filtered by tenants.
Activate tenant filter for the following field
With this option, a record is displayed in the browser only if the value of the data field selected here is contained in the tenants the user is assigned to. If the field does not contain a value, the record will be displayed for all users.
Activate tenant filter for field from the child data group
With this option, a record is displayed in the browser only if the value of the data field selected here from a child data group is included in the user's selected tenants. If there is no child record, the record will be displayed for all users.
