ABL Syntax Reference : BUFFER-TENANT-NAME function


Returns the name (as a character string) of the tenant that owns the current record in a specified buffer.


BUFFER-TENANT-NAME ( buffer-name )
An identifier that specifies the name of a record buffer.
If the buffer is not populated with a record, this function returns the Unknown value (?). If the buffer is for a shared table or a temp-table, the function returns the empty string ("").
If the buffer contains a record that belongs to a tenant group and the user is a super tenant, the function returns the tenant name of one of the members of the group. The tenant name returned is indeterminate, but is always the name of a tenant in the group.
For a regular tenant user, the record in the buffer always belongs to that tenant. So, the function always returns the user's own tenant name. This is true even if the record belongs to a tenant group.


BUFFER-TENANT-NAME can be used in a WHERE or TENANT-WHERE option as long as the buffer specified by buffer-name is not the same as the buffer of the query or FOR EACH statement.
