Commerce Composite Attributes

OVERVIEW

Composite attributes are used to display one or more fields belonging to a family of attributes. This attribute type is unique in that you can control the display of Composite attributes using XSL Views. Composite attributes can be used to display configurable attributes, product line attributes, model attributes, and component pricing.

ADMINISTRATION

Composite Attribute Description
Model Attributes This type of composite attribute can be viewed within the Model Attribute Set on Commerce sub-documents. It includes the regular attributes defined by the FullAccess user in Product Definition to categorize basic characteristics of models within a single product family (segment).
Model Product Line Attributes This is a composite attribute container for regular product line attributes and can be viewed within the Model Attribute Seton Commerce sub-documents. The values for these attributes are those defined for the product line to which a model belongs. This composite attribute is exactly the same as the Product Line Attributes composite attribute, however it is administrated from within the Model Attribute Set on Commerce sub-documents.
Product Line Attributes This is a composite attribute container for regular product line attributes and can be viewed within the Product Line Attribute Set on Commerce sub-documents. (These attributes are the same as those categorized by the Model Product Line Attributes composite attribute.) Regular product line attributes are defined by FullAccess users in Product Definition to categorize basic characteristics of product lines within a single product family (segment).
Segment (Product Family) Attributes This is a composite container that may be used in the future. Regular segment-level attributes are not supported on the system, so this composite attribute must NOT be used.
Component Prices Component Prices is a composite attribute that controls whether configured pricing details appear in Commerce documents and in the document XML. This type of composite attribute is part of the Price Attribute Set.
Configurable Attributes The Configurable Attributes composite attribute includes the configurable attributes associated with a specific model line item page on a transaction. Configurable attribute values are defined by users during product configuration. Configurable Attribute Information is populated with variable name, attribute name, data type and menu type information.
