relationship metadata

Hey, I have made metadata field especially for ca_objects_x_occurrences relationship. And the small edit icon appears when setting relationship record in providence. I can edit it and put a different text to a different relationship records.
The problem is when I want to show the metadata text in the object detail page, it shows the same last added text next to each related occurrence. 

The code is like this:

print "<div>".(($this->request->config->get('allow_detail_for_ca_occurrences')) ? caNavLink($this->request, $va_info["label"], '', 'Detail', 'Occurrence', 'Show', array('occurrence_id' => $vn_rel_occurrence_id)) : $va_info["label"])."</div>";
if($x)print $x;

    I'm assuming you're looping through the occurrences here -- so you should pull the relationship attribute relative to whatever occurrence is being referenced in the current loop. There are multiple ways to do that, but the easiest is probably a display template with one or two nested units. See here: (this assumes you're running Pawtucket2 -- I don't think the latest display template parser has made it into Pawtucket1 yet)
  • Ok, In providence in user interface in Object standard editor in Related Occurrences in
    Relationship display template  I wrote:

    <unit relativeTo="ca_occurrences">^ca_occurrences.preferred_labels (Test: ^ca_objects_x_occurrences.nr_relationship)</unit>

    and it works for Providence. Metadata shows up correctly with the title in Providence, but it doesn't show in pawtucket.  How to write it?
    Thank you
  • Hi Kpk,

    If you are running Pawtucket2, the same template will work.  This syntax is not supported on Pawtucket1.
