Creating a multi-column, many-to-many relationship

I'm attempting to create a multi-column, many-to-many relationship in Phalcon, but I'm getting a "Not supported" exception.

Is there a way around this?


    ['ss_session_id', 'revision_id'],
    ['child_id', 'revision_id'],
    ['parent_id', 'revision_id'],
    ['ss_stream_id', 'revision_id'],
        'params' => [
            'conditions' => 'child_type = :child: AND parent_type = :parent:',
            'bind' => [
                'child' => Linking::CHILD_TYPE_SESSION,
                'parent' => Linking::PARENT_TYPE_STREAM
        'alias' => 'Streams'

Let me know if you need to see any more code from the related models.

It may be possible that you can't make a many-to-many, multi-column relationship. If it says "Not supported", it's a situation the Phalcon developers are aware might be encountered, but for whatever reason have chosen not to support.

Maybe take a look in the GitHub repository and see if this issue has been raised there.
