We're looking for the Reference Data Component that is mentioned in this article from August 2017 but it is not available in Maestro 17.10.3?
Accessing Reference Data in a form
Commencing with the 17.10 release, reference data can be stored in Transact Manager and accessed by Maestro forms calling the referenceData function in the Transact namespace. Transact.referenceData()
So we just use a datafield? There is no component?
The article says "Drop a Reference Data component" from Maestro. Typing "reference" into the component filter does not show any components.
Yes. Now you can pull the data from TM, and manipulate and add it in any field you need.
You can find Transact API documentation at Maestro API reference, it's accessible from, for instance, a text field by clicking API methods from the editor.
Please, see the attachment:.
Can't seem to find transact name space in the dropdown.
Hi, that's odd.
Should be after Scroll... but I see that doc is TM5.1 (/Maestro-51/) which is not including Transact feature yet.
The use is like this:
Now I have a doubt, is it an error on the link or are you in TM5?
If you try to call Transact.referenceData method from any rule, what kind of error can you see?
I believe it's pre-released in earlier version of TM
I can now see transact namespace in the dropdown and you're right my test project was in maestro 5.1 before.
However, in the documentation of transact namespace, can you provide a link to TM reference data documentation as I am confused about the parameters in the method and how to reference them when calling the function.
