Hi all,

How can I add an API Name to User defined attribute? By default when I am creating an attribute, it is giving Type number but not an API - Name, I would like to add an API Name to that attribute. How come it will be possible?

How can I add this attribute to Business processes that are used in all diagrams at one go? How can I delete an attribute that is already add to an object?

Many thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

Srinivas.

Hi!

Unfortunately you can't define API name for user defined attributes, also you can't rely on typenumber it can change. So you should use types GUID. Reach your attribute like this

 

var db=ArisData.getActiveDatabase();

var filter=db.ActiveFilter();

var testAttribute = filter.UserDefinedAttributeTypeNum("eeb4a5a0-560f-11e1-4e4f-005056b1005f");

  To add new attribute to existed objects, you should modify filter  administration / configuration / conventions / filter choose your active filter and add or delete attributs from 'select objects attributes'. If you want automatically set value only report can do that.    I'm using ARIS 7.1 edition. Hope my post was useful for you.    Best Regards   Tamar

I think that u can define api names for user defined atributes, I'm also using ARIS 7.1, I remember I once did that, but I don't remember how.

Hi Tamar,

Many thanks for your inputs. I have one more question. For a VACD diagram, we have different swim lanes. And in each lane we are using business processes. I would like to add user defined attribute only to the business processes in one swimlane.

That attribute should not add in other processes in other swimlane. Is that possible???

Thanks Sue Droid. Please post your comments on this quetion as well.

Thanks in advance,
BR/Srinivas.

Hi!

Sue if you will remember how to define api names for user defined attributes or if you know how to add constants in API as well, please post it here that will easier my life :) 

Mr. Srinvas attributes are defined for object types. if you use same object type for all processes than they all will have same attributes, so i dont think what you wish is possible, unless you create new object type for them.

Hi Tamar,

One last question, How can I add different DataType for an attribute as of now I can see the below options for the data type, I want to add like "User attribute text" instead of multi line text. Thanks in advance.

BR/Srinivas.

Hi!

I dont know if there is any chance to do that, we always use multi-line text it acts as simple text.
