Create Database record directly from values

By Nicolas Marsceau on 20 Jul 2016

Currently, to create a record in the database, one needs a variable of type <Entity>. It could be a local variable, an aggregate function, or a form widget. 

I frequently run into situations where I need to create one minor record in the database while I'm working with a bigger, much more significant record. Rather than waste a local variable and an Assign node for each of these trivial database entries, it would be nice to be able to just call a Create<EntityName> function and directly pass in the values I want to be stored in the database.

So just create your own action to do this.  Why should every Outsystems user have to have the overhead of having this weird function on every entity just because you didn't take a few minutes to create this yourself.
