What are registration tables?
Registration tables enable users to register the following from a Workflow Stage Entry:
- New Schema Entity
- New Schema Entity and Batch
- New Batch of an existing Entity
Insert your registration table into your workflow stage entry
In your entry's formatting bar, click Insert and then Registration Table. In the Insert registration table modal (picture below), please select the schema for which you want to create entities/batches for, desired Registry Naming Options, and designate which type of Registration Table you'd like to insert:
- If you would like to create entities only, select Entity.
- If you would like to create news entities and a batch for each entity, select Batch.
- If you would like to create new batches of existing entities, select Batch.
Use the registration table to look up meta data of an existing schema entity in the Registry
If you'd like to look up meta data of an existing entity of the Registration table schema, enter the descriptive name or registry ID of the schema.
Once you've selected the entity of interest, you'll see that the meta data will load in the adjacent columns.
Create a batch of an existing entity
Following the steps above, enter batch metadata into the batch field columns adjacent to the populated entity columns. After data entry, click Register icon to register your batch.
The Batch column will populate with the Batch ID of your registered batch.
Simultaneously create a new entity and batch
To create a new entity and batch, just enter all entity and batch field information and click Register. Once registered, the Entity column will be populated with the Registry entity that you've just created. You will not be able to to register if:
- you have entered incorrect data types
- you have not completed required field
