Cascade copy is a feature on a business component that copies the child records of a business component record if the user copies a parent record. For example, if the user copies an opportunity to create a similar opportunity, then the user might require Siebel CRM to also copy the list of contacts for that opportunity.
A multi-value link that Siebel CRM uses with a multi-value field automatically copies the child records because the child records that constitute a multi-value group remain with the parent record. For example, the child account addresses, sales team, and industry list records for a parent account remain with the account. Siebel CRM uses this capability for a different purpose if cascade copy is defined for a multi-value link, and if Siebel CRM does not use the multi-value link in a multi-value field. It is not necessary to reference the multi-value link to a field in the business component. For more information, see How Siebel CRM Constructs a Multi-Value Group.
You can define cascade copy for a many-to-many relationship, where the Inter Table property of the destination link is not empty. In this situation, Siebel CRM creates new intersection table rows rather than new child business component records. Siebel CRM creates new associations rather than new records. These associations exist between the new parent and the existing child records.
