Overlay object names
This topic contains the following information:
Starting from this release, the overlay object uses the same name as their corresponding overlaid objects. To distinguish overlay objects from overlaid objects, the overlayGroupID appears at the end of overlay object names.
BMC Remedy Developer Studio generates a name for custom objects that ends with __c. You can change the name so that __c is not part of the name, but the __c notation ensures that the name of your custom object will not conflict with any new origin object that might be introduced in a patch or upgrade. (BMC does not use the string __c in any origin object.)
View and field overlay names
Views and fields are identified by IDs, not names. Overlays for views and fields use the same ID as their overlaid views and fields. Overlays for views and fields are distinguished from their overlaid objects as the overlays are associated with a form's overlay object, not with the overlaid form.
Form overlay names
The overlays for forms use the same schemaId as their overlaid forms. To distinguish overlay forms from overlaid forms, overlayGroupID column is added to the arschema table. The overlayGroupID column consists of the following value:
|0||does not belong to an overlay group|
|1||belongs to the overlay group|
All overlay and custom objects have
1 in this column. Unmodified and overlaid objects always have
0 in this column. For example:
<schemaId=100> <overlayGroupId=0> <schemaId=100> <overlayGroupId=1>
The form overlays created with releases prior to BMC Remedy AR System 9.0 have schemaId different than the overlaid forms. When you upgrade to BMC Remedy AR System 9.0, the schemaId of the overlay forms are updated to match the schemaId of the original form.
Renaming overlay and overlaid objects
You cannot rename overlay objects.
If you rename an overlaid object, the AR System server automatically updates the name of its overlay object to match the new name.
