Be careful how you add entities to a web manifest in the SalesLogix Application Architect

Just a heads up to those building web manifests in the Application Architect.  If you add a new entity or modify an existing one, if you drag the whole entity over the manifest will save the definition for that entire entity at the time the bundle was created.  If you then use that bundle to install into another system that has other fields in the same entity as what you bundled up, once you install your manifest, only those entity properties that you had in the system the manifest was created from will be there.  The other custom entity properties in the target system will be switched off.

This is especially important if you are bundling up entities to be installed into a system during an upgrade.  If the entity that you have added custom properties to, has been modified to include new custom properties by Sage and you install your manifest where the entire entity was added to the manifest rather than each property individually, once you install your manifest, all of the new Sage custom properties will be removed from the entity since they were not included in the entity on which the manifest was created from.
