Centralized Master Items List

Hello,

I am attempting to create Dimensions and Measures in a Master List. The problem is I want to create a centralized master list that can be accessed by multiple apps. Is there any way for me to do this?

My goal is to have a central master items list that when updated, it updates the master items list of all of my other applications.

Re: Centralized Master Items List

What you could do is use the engine api to extract the master items from an app, and then use the engine api to add them to other apps.  That is possible.  I haven't done it, but it's possible.

As of right now, master items for libraries are per application.  What you can do is create a version of the application as a template.  Use this version as the copy you make changes to.  When you want to update the other apps using the same library, publish this template replacing the existing apps already published.

Sheets that exist in the Community area, and My Sheets for users will not be overwritten during this publish event.

Do you think any of the API's would be capable of creating a centralized master items list, or is it also not possible there?

I have built some small utilities like that for personal use using the Engine API. It was quite rudimentary but it's fairly simple, then again I did not have that many apps where I could re-use measures across apps due to set analysis and case sensitive field names.

I would love to look it over if that is at all possible.
