Questionnaires can contain questions about the relationship type. To create a relationship type field, go to questionnaires in the administration screen. If you add the type you will see the following input screen:
Fill in this screen as complete as possible. Sometimes an object has 20 relationships and the relationship type question only shows 4 relationships. Sometimes it may seem that the relationship type question should give more answers. Although it appears that this situation may well occur for the following reason.
The relationship type question only shows the relationships that meet the specific requirements. As the image above shows, you have to make a choice for an object definition where the relation goes, a relation definition and you can optionally give a label (not entering anything is an empty label). Only if all these items match the relationship established, then this relationship is visible in the relationship types field.
Suppose you have the following four used by relationships:
- relationship 1 runs from object type: business actor to object type: business process and has "A" as a Label
- relationship 2 runs from object type: business actor to object type: business process and has "B" as a Label
- relationship 3 runs from object type: business actor to object type: business process and no label
- relationship 4 runs from object type: business process to object type: business actor and label "A"
and the following completed relationship type field:
The above relationships all contain elements that match the completed relationship type field. However, the relation type field will only show relation A, because all elements are satisfied here, the relation has the right direction and relation type, the right object types and places are present, and the relation has the right label.
