We have a document type called "Service" with 2 properties, Id and Name.
Service types can exist anywhere in the content tree, in the root or as a child of another document type.
Using CMSImport we import our service data from Sql Server into the CMS so we may have a "service" of Id = 1000 in the root of the tree and as a child of another document type at any point in the content tree.
For our business purposes a "service" with an Id of 1000 is the same service wherever it exists in the tree and it could exist at multiple places.
Therefore we want that if a cms editor updates the name property of a service with id of 1000 at any point in the content tree then all the other service document types with id of 1000 elsewhere in the tree are updated as well.
How can we achieve that? Internally as far as Umbraco is concerned these are all stored as separate objects...
I'd consider changing your architecture so you have just one instance of the same Service (in a repository List View) and then use a Content Picker to associate the service with multiple nodes.
However, if that's not possible you'll need to look at two things:
Firstly, you're going to need to use an event such as the Published event to hook into whenever a Service is updated. See:
Then you're going to need to use the Content Service to find all events with the Id of the one being published and then copy the values from the origin to each of them.
That's the very short version, but hopefully points you in the right direction.
