Not able to update email address field in data schema as it is marked as Primary key

Hi There

I need to update the email address field values from uppercase to lower case to make them uniform inside the data schema but it is not happening because email address is marked as Primary key.

Please help me to achieve this or please suggest any workaround.

Thanks

Nandhakumar

Hi Venu

Thanks for your quick turnaround.

I've tried it but it is not working. Also to clarify, if that field is marked as primary key, is that stopping from update request.

Thanks

Hi Nandha,

I tried in my instance and it is working as expected.

It won't stop updating the filed even though if the field is marked as primary key.

Hi,

Update your schema attribute to dataPolicy="lowerCase" to lowercase going forward.

If possible, instead of setting properties on the field use template="xtk:common:email" for consistency with the rest of the system.

Thanks,

Hi Jon

But schema is already having dataPolicy="email". Should i update my custom schema or any other workaround? This is about email address field.

<attribute dataPolicy="email" desc="Email address" label="Email" length="128"

name="email" sqlname="sEmail" type="string"/>

Thanks

Oh, right. Other options are to lowercase at points of intake, i.e. update activity with lower() and form leave+set, or to instead reference a second attribute lowercasing the first, i.e. <attribute expr="lower(@email)"/>.
