Single Step versus Two Step Relation Retrieval

This might be a strange question, I am just wondering, what is the difference if I could use either way to get a list from one property column of related objects? It looks like I could use either of the 2 blocks: Load Object Relations and Load Table Objects with where clause. Is there any benefit to using one method over the other? Thanks again!


Hi @Hung_Le

I assume technically there is no difference except that the “Load Object Relations” is more convenient to load the relation of a particular parent object and you do not need to compose a whereClause with reverse relation.

However, I’m going to ask the backend team, if perhaps the block is much performed from the DB querying perspective.

The “Load Object Relations” block works much faster, so we recommend using it for loading relations when you know the parent object Id and the relationship column
