Temporary columns

Feature overview

New in Vinyl 3.2, the Temporary Columns feature allows for editable columns in a Rule which aren't targeted in a physical table. You can access the values stored in a Temporary Column by using the caller function. A business use case scenario where you may wish to use the Temporary Column feature is for extra bindings on CRUD Rules or when working with Filter Panels.

How to configure

To leverage the Temporary Columns feature, when adding a column to a Rule in the Business Logic Layer, choose the Usage Type of Temporary.



After a Save Event, the data stored in a Temporary Column will still be available in the Rule, but if the User performs a full page refresh the data will be lost.
