Possible to display "Primary Text" instead of "Name" in linked artifacts in Doors Next Gen?


Michael Meinschaefer (483) | asked Jun 05 '20, 8:54 a.m.
Hello everyone.

When i add a link attribute to my module view, i m able to show attributes of the linked artifact in this column.
By default the "name" attribute of the linked artifact will be displayed.
Instead of name, i would like the complete primary text of the linked artifact to be displayed - so i can see the entire text instead of the abbreviation version in name attribute.
Is there a way to do this?

Thanks in advance,
Michael

 I do not believe this is possible.

You can specify any 3 of the linked attributes using the 'Format' button, but apparently not the Primary Text field (under any of it's synonyms: Content etc).
Also it's not apparently possible to create a custom attribute of type 'Text' (rather than String), just in case that seemed like a solution.
