    Generic Information Objects

    Sam M Cohen

      We have a need for the following

      1. To "attach" multiple URLs to an object record.  Each attached URL would have it's own label. The label need not be unique, but is predefined (pick list). That is, it could be used multiple times, even in the same object record. The labels would come from a predefined/update-able (by admins) list (to ensure consistency). 

        First choice would be one URL object across any/all parent objects, which records/filters the data based on the object and record to which it is attached. 
        The second option would be a URL object per target parent object, filtered only on object record ID

        The list of URL labels would also have a predefined "Other" option which would allow entry of a "new" label per URL record.  These "other" labels would be periodically reviewed and likely result in updates to the predefined list of labels above.
      2. The same, but allowing attachment of files
      3. The same, but allowing linking to Vendor accounts


      The current objects to which we currently envision these would be attached include:

      • CIs/Assets
      • Locations


      In a pseudo data, for URL, for example (and assuming 1 URL object total):

      • Internal key (indexed, unique)
      • URL (Hyperlink) (indexed, not unique)
      • parent object (FK)
      • parent object record (FK)
      • Label Link (FK)
      • Label Value if "Other"
