Technical Attributes of Domains

The only technical attribute of a domain is the description of an elementary data type whose following technical attributes are defined directly in the domain:

  • Length
  • A number of decimal places (optional)

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54


When existing domains are modified, all consumers of the domain are also affected. In particular, foreign keys can become inconsistent when used for the fields of database tables, which makes conversions necessary.
