Creating a child record from the parent record interface.

I have a Parent Summary interface that I want to add a record action button to that creates an entry in a child table. Adding the button is easy enough, however adding that button alone doesn't connect the Parent to the child when using the button. So what steps am I missing to make that connection?

    In the process model which you will be using for related action you'd create a process variable which is to be set as Parameter which means that the value in this variable will be required at the start of the process. So in your related action setup from Record Type, you will pass the value for that paramter pv! in the context of the related action.

    Have you already completed the Appian developer course available on Academy Online ? I think these are very basic questions and you should first go through basic courses which are required to get started with Appian.
