I have a simple model that looks like the image. I created a registration page that uses a microflow to add to the StaffRegistration entity. However, I am not familiar with how Mendix creates the database record so that the Staff entity has a new person in it with the supplier they work for (based on the ANID collected in the registration.) How do I get the microflow to add the details to the Staff account along with the ANID they enter in the registration form?
In your microflow,
add a retrieve action using XPath.
Build the XPath to retrieve the Supplier with ANID matching the one supplied during registration.
You’ll need to click First in the retrieve.
If the retrieve returns an object, it will be in the microflow variable with the name you supplied in the retrieve.
When you create the Staff object, you’ll have the ability to set attributes (name, email, etc.) and associations (Staff_Supplier). In the item for Staff_Supplier, use the object you retrieved.
