Constrain Category by Project with addtional rule-constraint > "new item" line shows full list

Constrain Category by Project with addtional rule-constraint > "new item" line shows full list

The field Category is already constrained for each type, e.g. for "Customer Input":

Constrain_Category_FieldRelationship.png

Now I want to further contrain the category by Project using a rule relationsship, e.g.:

Constrain_Category_RuleRelationship_Project.png

Now I assume, that when I have a Customer Input Document in the Recycle Bin project I can only see three categories (Capability, Comment, Heading), while in all other projects I see the full list. BUT: when I open a Customer Input Document in Recycle Bin I can still see the full list for the "New" item row:

Category_List_NewItem.png

Anyway the constrain works when saving, that means I get an error when I choose for example the "Critical Success Factor" from the list.

 

When I edit an existing item the pick list is shown as expected:

Category_List_ExistingItem.png

 

The reason must be, that the new item will be assigned to the project only when saving this item. Before it doesn't have a project. Anyway, is there any possiblity to hide the categories that are not allowed in this document?

 

Thanks, Timo

You are correct in saying that the constraint will not apply to the Virtual Row fields because there are not yet any committed values in the database to check against. There are some submitted PTC Integrity Product Ideas which may match your request:

Integrity Object Constraint

Soft Constraints (non-blocking filters)
