I'm creating an application/website, that you can control "assets" with. (The fact this is an app/website is irrelevant, I'm just giving some detail)
Inside these assets, you can define attributes, and you optionally set the attribute(s) to be dependent on another assets attributes, I call these "dependent attributes", as that term refers to the relationship going from the child to the parent
Now if you're viewing the the parent asset, what would I call the relationship going the opposite direction? I keep thinking "dependents", but that would be confusing as heck.
If "dependent" isn't the best verbiage for something that needs to be described going both directions, then whats another good word? I actually looked up 'dependent' on thesaurus.com, and didn't find anything I thought would suffice
