It needs a way to iterate through collections and execute a rule with each object of the collection.

  • I agree that this would be very useful for multiple use cases:

    • execute an action on all related records via a MANY2MANY association
    • execute an action on all values in a complex collection attribute (like those used in SACM)

    But it will be tricky to provide that functionality while still avoiding to create yet another programming language. I.e. I don't think this should come in the form of a generic FOR EACH loop construct.

    Instead, it could be a new set of rule templates, e.g. : Execute <existing action rule template> on related records by <association name> with <related record condition>

  • This is a very good idea. Very often we want to hide many fields on one condition. Today we have to dulicate the condition.
