- The relationship to Entity Definition is the controlling field.
- The relationship to Field Definition specifies the standard or custom field from the entity definition object.
When adding a record to the custom metadata type that has the relationship fields, select the specific object and field to reference. For example, select the Industry field on the Account object.
When creating a view and filter on a field definition relationship field, two separate filters are required—the field definition and the controlling entity definition. Filtering by the field definition relationship field alone isn’t enough. For example, to view all records that look up the Industry field on Account, make sure that the filter criteria specify the API names of the object and field.
- In the Metadata API, MetadataRelationshipControllingField is new.
- In the user interface, the field description for the Metadata Relationship field type has been expanded to include the entity definition and field definition relationship options.
