Reference back-linking

ACMA provides the ability to provide automatic back-linking between two object classes and a reference value.

If object A references object B on the attribute objectAInstance, ACMA can automatically populate a reference to object B on object A's objectBInstance attribute.

Back-links are defined on the object class that has the source reference attribute. The object class for the target must be specified (it can be the same object class), as well as the reference source and reference targets.

Once a relationship is defined, ACMA will automatically manage the back-linking process. It is important to note that management of back-links happens during an object's export. If there are existing objects in the database when a back-link is created, no automatic back-linking will take place for those objects, until the reference source attribute value is modified.
