Data source: "Current page thing" vs "Do a search for..."

Hello, Bubblers.
I have two Things with customised relations between each other:

  1. Plan (can have many Plan_variants);
  2. Plan_variant (can have one Plan).

I created a page with type of content “Plan”. On that page there are two fields that should solve the same task: display a number of Plan_variants that are associated with current page Plan. The difference between them is the data source:

Is this a bug? Or I missed something?

Have you added the variants to the list of variants on the plan object?

Hello. csblack.
Yep:

That represents your database model, but not the actual data. You have to add the variants to the list on the plan object somehow.

I add Plan_variant to a Plan with that workflow:

Updated. After some experiments I’ve found out that there should be two-step WF to make relations between Plan and Plan_variant.
At the beginning my assumption was that a statement “Plan = Current Page Plan” will establish relations between newly created Plan_variant and current page Plan. And this was my mistake because we just make relation Plan_variant -> Plan (field “Plan” in Plan_variant is filled with current page plan, but list “Plan_variants” in Plan remains blank).
So the next step in my WF should be “add result of Step 1” to a list of Plan_variants in Plan. Now we will have relations Plan <-> Plan_variant (both sided).

Thank you, @csblack, you showed me the direction to search for :wink:
