Automatically renegated entity attributes

Backend
New

While talking to some work colleagues, I had an idea regarding the way entities are created and the process that ends up happening almost every time.

Regardless of the Entity about to be created, there are a few attributes that end up always being present, such as:

  • CreatedAt
  • UpdatedAt
  • CreatedBy
  • UpdatedBy
  • IsActive
  • "Some generic business related attribute"
  • (...)

The idea here consists of a small menu that allows the user to create a default “Form” that will default the generic format of each Entity created on the module he's currently working on.

With this, any Entity (Non-Static) that gets created on that module automatically “Inherits” those attributes, already defined to the correct format, w/ descriptions etc.

This behaviour should be possible to turn On/Off with ease.


Any feedback would be appreciated,

Cheers!

Some of OutSystems' competitors automatically create these as part of the system without even asking you just check off what you need.

That would also be a way of doing it @Justin. Regardless how it would work, the feature seems simple enough to implement, and would simplify and fasten a lot of work.

I wasn't aware it was already something other platforms implemented, thank you for the info! 


Cheers!
