Field is showing Unique ID instead of name

I have data type “Users” that contains all of my user data, and one of the fields inside that is “Role”. I also have another data type for “Roles”, which is modified in the UI. However, when I assign a “Role” to a “User’s Role”, it assigns the data type Role’s unique ID instead of the Role’s name. Any ideas as to why this would be happening? I suppose what I need to know is how to have it assign the Role name instead of the unique ID…

Hey @jordan.shotwell :slight_smile: Since Role is a Thing, assigned to each User, by default the Role’s unique id value is shown in the database view. However you can adjust this by clicking “Primary Fields” (on the left hand-side in the App Data View). Then for the Role data type, you would select the Name field from the dropdown. That should do it!
