Subject: DE issues for review and disposition
This has been raised before, but I suggest we add this to the DE issues list for discussion and formal disposition.
ISSUE 1 - Multiple payloads / distribution types
DE can carry multiple payloads, and I just now see a change that shows that DistributionType can be one or MANY as it should be (so that different payloads in the same DE may have different distrType). E.g. A DE with 2 payloads – one payload may be a “response” and the other be a “request”. This is a valid requirement, but then requires a way to associate distibutiontype(s) with different payloads. There are also other business needs to relate together multiple payloads within the same distribution.
ISSUE 2 – Incident Identifier and Description 1 or many?
Same issue as above. If the business rule above is implemented, then multiple payloads within a DE need to be related to the same incident. Otherwise, need a way to relate Incident ID’s and Desc’s with each payload (the “contentObject” thought above?).
