Using Commands to Change Field Values

Commands can be used to control certain behavior of object type fields. At specific points (execution workflow steps) in the deployment process, you can run the commands stored in the object type. These commands can then manipulate the data inside an object type field. For example, you can construct a command to consider a number of parameters, and then default a field based on those parameters. This can be better than the default features for the Field window, which default, based on a single field located in the same object type.

The ksc_store special command can perform this function. For information on using this and other commands, see the Commands, Tokens, and Validations Guide and Reference.

You can use commands to control field values in the following situations:

  • To store a value from an execution in a custom field

  • To clear a field after you evaluate several parameters
