Attributes Tab

Use this tab to assign attributes to routed documents. This tab displays the attributes associated with a docbase and a document type.

Option Description
For docbase Enter the docbase for which the component displays attributes in the Attribute list. The default value of this text box is the Docbase defined on the General tab. You can select a docbase from a list by clicking the browse button (...). The list displays values only if the component is able to establish connection with the Documentum server and retrieve the information about existing docbases.
Note: You cannot use RRTs in this field.
For type Enter the document type for which the component displays attributes in the Attribute list. The default value of this text box is the Type defined on the Document tab. You can click the browse button (...) to open the Select Type dialog box to select a document type from a document list. The list of document types displays values only if the component is able to establish connection with the Documentum server and retrieve information about existing types.
Note: You cannot use RRTs in this field.
Attribute list This list displays the attributes(or properties) that will be assigned to routed documents. The following information is displayed for each attribute:
  • Name — Attribute name
  • Type — Attribute type
  • Value — Attribute value
  • Docbase — Docbase membership
  • Document type — Document type

The component keeps all attributes received from the server and added by user in its configuration. When the list of attributes is requested, the component tries to retrieve the list from the server, if connection can't be established, the list of attributes is taken from the configuration.

The list of attributes is filtered according to the values of For docbase and For type fields. If one of the fields(or both) is empty, the list is not filtered according to it. The attributes that don't have docbase or type are also included in the list and not affected by the specified values. If RRTs are used in For docbase and For type text boxes, the component regards them as empty values.

Note: If some attribute value is set via RRT and is replaced by an empty value at run time, it will be silently ignored.

The values of attributes should be defined unambiguously. If two attributes with the same names are used, it is recommended that they belong to different docbases and/or different document types.

Add click this button to add a new attribute to the list. This button opens the Add Attribute dialog box.
Note: When For docbase or For type is empty or defined using an RRT, the added attribute will have a corresponding empty Docbase or Document type value.
Edit Select an attribute in the list and click this button to edit the selected attribute in the Edit Attribute dialog box.
Remove Select an attribute in the list and click this button to remove the selected attribute.
