This function is used when defining a content rule for a field. The value of a field for a content profile can be made dependent on a view by using this function. Because a field can have both a default and a derived value, the view can be used to create an interdependency between fields.

Type and Usage


Takes three parameters:

  • Field. The name of a metadata field. This field must have an associated view.

  • Value. A lookup key for value.

  • Column name. A column in the view's table.


Returns the value in the column specified using the field value as a lookup.


In the following example, the view table for the field xEmployee has a column called type. Using the value as specified in the xEmployee metadata field, this function provides a lookup into this table and returns the type column value.

getFieldViewValue("xEmployee", #active.xEmployee, "type")
