    How to constrain a validation list based on another field value on the same form


    Resolution

     

    The proper syntax is $([ValidationList]FIELDNAME)   For example 


    That will constrain the Team of the picklist, to that of the selected Team on the Incident.  

    To take it a step further, you can use:

    [Profile#Employee.Rev2]Team   is Equal to     $([ValidationList]OwnerTeam)

    This will compare the Owner of the Incident form against the LoginID of the relationship from the validation business object, which has the internal reference name "Rev2". 

    In this case, this represents the "Member" tab of the Employee object, so the constraint says "The validation list will only show Employees who are linked to the same team as the selected team on the Incident".
