Most records (other than the root) have a parent. This as a concept generally makes in most situations. However when virtual sources come into play the parent often just refers to another virtual source but not the root record they all belong to.

This property for the most part refers back to the object itself. However for virtual sources this refers back to the record that was associated with the virtual source. Most of the time this matches parent but for nested source objects it's useful to be able to refer back to the base in all cases without having to walk up the parents.


{% if this != this.record %}
  <a href="{{ this.record|url }}">go back to overview</a>
