How does the "Parent" attribute in the Project object function?


Here is the working of the Parent attribute:

  1. This is a single select lookup attribute. Multiple values cannot be selected against it
  2. The underlying lookup on which this attribute is built, prevents the selection of the project that we are on, as a parent project
  3. That is, if we are choosing value against Project A, then Project A does not display as one of the values that can be chosen against this attribute
  4. This prevents a scenario where id and parent_id columns of inv_investments are the same against a given row
  5. The value selected against this attribute is only stored in parent_id column of inv_investments table
