Creating Attribute Definitions

When you want to give a limited selection of values to the user for an attribute, you are required to create an attribute definition for that class attribute. An example of where this may be necessary could be which operating system a product should have. The number of operating systems may want to be constrained to the supported operating systems like Windows XP, Windows 2000, and so on.

To create an attribute definition

  1. Navigate to the Administration - Product Attribute Definitions view.
  2. In the Product Attribute Definitions list, create a new record and complete the necessary fields.

    Some fields are described in the following table.



    Add a name for the attribute, for example Operating System.

    Locked Flag

    By default this check box is selected.

    Locked By

    Example: SADMIN

  3. Click the Attribute Details view tab and add the details (for example Windows XP, Windows 2000 and so on) and the sequence you want the attribute definitions to be shown in.

    For more information about setting up attributes, see the product attributes section in the Siebel Product Administration Guide.

    You can now associate the attribute definition with a product attribute class and then a product. For more information, see Creating Attribute Classes.

    When an asset is instantiated from a customized product, the asset's customize button becomes enabled and the asset can be configured.

    For more information about assets, see the setting up assets section in the Siebel Field Service Guide.
