Update Behavior

Set which is the way the update of entity records is performed:

All Attributes: all the attributes are always updated in the database.

Changed Attributes: only the attributes that were changed are updated in the database thus, improving efficiency.

Mandatory

Changed Attributes

When the Update Behavior is set to 'Changed Attributes', even if there are no changed attributes, there is still an update event to ensure that listening BPT Processes are notified.

In this situation, no attribute value is changed in the database.

Logical Database

The logical name that represents an external database where the entity is stored. Each Service Center has a map from a Database Connection to a Logical Database name. This is especially useful when staging between environments, allowing to dynamically change the entity's external database.
