Allow users to define through configuration whether (the value of) the attribute should be carried over to a new revision

Use cases to be covered:

  1. Whether or not the value of the attribute associated to the class is carried over to a new instance

  2. Whether or not to completely remove the association to the (legacy) attribute not associated to the class when creating a new instance


  • For (1), it should be possible to define the class attributes behaviour for each attribute individually at a parent class level and inherit down the class hierarchy.

  • For (2), a setting on the (parent) class should be sufficient and will apply to all legacy attributes on the class instance. By default, the setting must be inherited down the class hierarchy.

  • At minimum, this should be supported for documents.

  • The same settings will be applied equally to both CC and non-CC objects.

  • The same settings will be applied equally to both revising or copying objects.

  • It should be possible to set the above behaviour via the import/export tool.

What underlying problem is this idea trying to solve?

Currently the only way to address this is via configuring automations / event handlers. And automations do not support multivalued attributes for this case.
