Composite with 2 identity attributes

Hello! :slight_smile:
How do I create instances of a composite topic type with two identity attributes? My example: I created a Topic Type “e-mail” with a subject and a date as the two identity attributes. Now when I try to create an instance via the Search/Create dialog it cannot be created because the date is missing and I don’t know if there is a way / a format to hand it over during creation.
Do you have any hints on this?

Hi Silke!

actually you’re reporting a DMX 5.1 regression here!
The very problem you describe was fixed in 5.0-beta-6 already but now reappeared in 5.1:

I’ve reopened this ticket now. Will be fixed very soon.

Thank you for reporting!

Workaround: do not set any identity attribute for your composite (“Email”). This works as long as the composite is not child type in another composite.

This is fixed meanwhile. More than one identity attribute does work again. The fix will be part of DMX 5.2. You can test the current 5.2-SNAPSHOT here:
