The Attribute Editor

OVERVIEW

After adding a configurable attribute, the next page is an Attribute Editor specific to the type of attribute you created.

Use the General tab to view and edit current information.

The other tabs available are Related Rules, Template Properties and Set Properties.

The Set Properties tab appears only when the configurable attribute is of the type Array.

In general, most users will not need to reorder their attributes; only a few special circumstances warrant attribute reordering.

NOTES

    NULL and blank Integer values are treated as separate values.

    - NULL= 0
    - Blank = ""

    If you use logic that tests for NULL values in rule conditions or BML, this logic should be updated.

    Using "null" as an attribute value is strongly discouraged.
