One Click Record Producer Creation

Did you know you could create a record producer with a few clicks without having to redefine variables that already exist on a table?

I have a tip that most people don't know about.

Often times you have an existing data structure that you just want to enable via the Service Catalog/Service Portal. It's pretty time consuming to have to lookup the column names and create all of the variables manually.

Here is how you do it:

  1. Visit the table definition via Left Nav. (System Definition > Tables) or if you are viewing the List/Form (Right Click > Configure > Table)
  2. Scroll Down to "Related Links" > "Add to Service Catalog"
  3. Select your columns in the "Available" list via the slushbucket
  4. Give it a Name, Short Description, and Category
  5. Finally Click "Save and Open"
  6. You should be redirected to your newly created Record Producer (which includes the variables selected from the slushbucket)
