Is it possible to script the documentation of entities?

Is it possible to script the documentation of entities (see red square in screenshot) and attributes, so it extracts info from a data glossary application? (eg: use a function like getDefition('Country') which will display the correct defintion, in nice markup, the definition stored in the data glossary app)

Yes, you can acheive this and the definitions can be displayed using Markdown syntax. Take a look at Application Documentation Links

You can also provide direct url access to other applications:

Hi Peter,

I can see how we can extract the documentation values and display it in the application within the same model.

But, our goal is to have a separate application/model for this data glossary. Users can then update/author definitions, which are stored under attributes and on the database. Is it possible to extract these values over to our main application?

We were thinking of using a function in the main application that would get the field value from the data glossary. For example GET_DOCUMENTATION('Revenue') would send a query to extract the definition that's stored on the database. But it seems like it's not possible to call a function like this to populate the documentation of an attribute automatically.

In the form field documentation, there is a possibility to use SemQL, but I'm not managing to make any function work here.
