I have a parent and child relationship among objects,both having record types A & B?

I want to ensure that Parent record of A record type should be able to create Child record of A record type only.

How can this be achieved?

This can be achieved in few ways:

  • URL hack on child creation button
  • override create/edit page of child record
  • create validation rule to enforce matching Record Types

I think it would be best to combine those solutions. Best approach depends on your environment settings.
