In this article

A BulkAssociationNavigator method instance returns external items that are related to the given set of external items.

This stereotype requires a list of collections of external items, where each collection contains an external item for every source external content type of the BulkAssociationNavigator. This stereotype should return external items that are associated with external items in any of the given collections and are based on the destination external content type of the AssociationNavigator.

This method can potentially return many external items. Rich filtering should be used to filter the results and optimize the behavior. For more information about how to use filters, see IFilterCollection.

This method should return an IEntityInstanceEnumerator.

Following is a typical method signature for a BulkAssociationNavigator method:

long CheckAccess(IdType1[] id1, etc…)
