Service Studio 6.0 Help
Create Entity Attributes
The definition of your entity is made through Attributes that store part of the information that concerns the entity.
Examples of attributes are: name, address, zip code, and city.
How to create an Attribute:
In the eSpace tree, under the Data layer, double-click on the entity in the Entities folder to open the Entity Editor. Select the Tab Attributes, press the New button, and edit the new attribute.
When you create an attribute, the Agile Platform automatically manages for you the update of all entity records stored in the database, i.e., the entity records are automatically updated with the new attribute which is set with the default value (of the attribute's data type). Learn more about Default Values in Database.
Mandatory attributes are automatically validated at the user interface level by the Agile Platform. However, in the database, mandatory attributes are created allowing null values thus, at the database level there's no validation for mandatory attributes.
When you delete an attribute, Service Studio is permissive and you can delete an attribute whether it is being used or not. The eSpace is not valid (An eSpace is valid when all expressions are correctly defined and the TrueChange operation issues no errors.) and you must fix the elements where the attribute is being used.
