i'm trying to display Account information on a Contact and using lightning component with recordeditform. i get all the contact data but I'm not seeing any data in the component but when i open my console i see following warning. enter image description here
here is the code for lightning component.

 <aura:component implements="force:appHostable,flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes,flexipage:availableForRecordHome,force:hasRecordId,force:lightningQuickAction" access="global" >
        <aura:attribute name="recordId" type="String" />
        <aura:if isTrue="{! not( empty( v.recordId ) ) }">
                <lightning:messages />
        <lightning:outputField fieldName="Account.Website" aura:id="awebsite"/>
            <lightning:outputField fieldName="Account.Name" aura:id="aname"/>
            <lightning:outputField fieldName="Account.Industry" aura:id="aindustry"/>

it would be great if anyone could point me a right direction/documentation or link. thank you for your time.


According to documentation, Fields that have a spanning relationship aren't supported by lightning:outputField. The fields specified must be associated with only one object. A field such as Contact.Account.Ownership is a cross-object reference between the Contact object and the Account object, and can't be displayed in the form.

As a workaround, You can have nested recordEditForm, one on Contact and another one on account.
