What do you mean with attribute of data source? Your EditNew page needs an object. Is it coming from a datasource microflow? Is it passed from the page that is opening the page?

Can you provide some more details about your association? is it 1-1, 1-*, *-1 or *-*? Which entity is the owner?

Are you using the standard save button or a custom save button? If you use a custom button? What is your microflow doing?


Could you provide a screenhsort of your implementation and logic? Are you using a ‘save’ button or microflow?


Hello Andreas,

Hereby I sent you some information and screenshots. I hope this provides you with enough information.

I use a standard new button.



Domain Model:


i see now that only in the detailed page, the ID (number) is mentioned, not in the overview page. Please see the screenshots below..

Select record:

Update record:

Select record again:

and additionally I notice that the ‘ID’ is mentioned instead of the field 'naam’.


I do not understand your last answer fully.

The configured entity is the VS-table. The selected associated object  in the field should be, in my opinion, an attribute. The Mendix documentation shows (see the picture below), that I should select an attribute (red.frame).

Thats confusing. What is the correct interpretation?
