Adding requests to existing Overview console columns
To add other custom requests to existing Overview console columns, you must determine which forms to include and the data to show on the Overview console.
The following example shows how the fields on the hypothetical custom source form, XYZ:CustomForm, map directly to the union fields and then, indirectly, to the Overview console table, along with any additional considerations.
In this example, assume the following information:
- Source Form: XYZ:CustomForm
- Database View Name: XYZ_CustomForm
Example source form mappings
Source form field
Union field mapping
Overview console mapping
If there is a user-facing ID different from the Request ID, map that value here instead.
Required (must be unique across all request forms)
Add the ticket type enumerated value for the Custom form to the TicketType field on SHR:Union_OverviewConsole view form overlay. Ensure that the values or IDs on the source form match the values or IDs on SHR:Union_OverviewConsole. Because this is a linear selection field, you might need to make changes to the field if a new ticket type is introduced in a later release.
This requires enumerated value conversion, as well as additional steps identified below if there are values that do not already exist in the ConsolidatedStatus field.
The qualification building workflow can use this for inclusion of the records on the Overview console.

Review the Overview console workflow to identify references to the column values and to ensure that the existing functionality works with the new request. This topic covers only the steps to create the mappings to make the data is available; it does not consider any of the workflow that might depend on those values.
To add additional requests to an existing Overview console, perform the following procedures in the order indicated by the list:
- Creating the source form record
- Creating mappings between source form and union fields
- Adding new values to the overlay
- Creating the database union structure
- Viewing records on the Overview console
