Are you planning to maintain the Attributes in model or where you want to maintain those attributes?
Hi, I want to allocate the new attributes to the Activity object and maintain them using Properties in the Explorer window. These attributes will not displayed on the EPC model diagrams.
Try using Entire Method. If you can still not use an attribute using this filter, then the only way forward is to create a new attribute with the same properties
Thanks, I already tried that so ended up creating my own attributes now.
I'd still be interested to know if anyone knows how these particular attributes should work.
are you talking about a predefined attribute which is shipped with ARIS or are you trying to use an user-defined attribute?
In the first case, you can only assign this attribute to object types, which it is already assigned to. For example, you can't assign an attribute, which is only available for a function, to an organisational unit.
For the second case, you are using the "free attributes". Those attributes are available for all objects. In that case, you only have to make sure they are visible in your filter for the specific object.
In this case after adding the Object you press the F8,it will open the attribute list there you can maintain the attributes what ever you want.
After adding the attribute you have to activate the attributes in your properties window.Using the add attribute function.
Pls let me know if you have any queries.
Thanks for the comments.
The attributes are shipped with Business Architect for SAP and were the ones I was trying to assign to the Activity object (for use with the standard SAP functions).
When you try to associate the attributes I listed, you cannot see them in the list when configuring filters, or even in the standard SAP filters supplied with ARIS.
However, you can see them in the main list of Attribute Types where you can see all their id numbers and where they reside in the database structure.
In the end I defined my own attributes using the "free attributes" approach but it would still be nice to know how these specific SAP Portal-related attributes work, as I believe they're quite new.
I'll post if I hear back from IDS as I''m interested as a) how to access them, and b) if not using the standard ones has implications later in my project.
I heard back from IDS about this and it turns out these specific attributes are linked to the Screen object but you cannot link them to a Function.
The best way to access these attributes would most likely be to use the Screen object on FAD diagrams to link Screen to the Function object.
I guess that makes sense considering the objects relate to designing Portals.
We are modeling SAP / CRM processes and we are going to synchronize them to Solution Maneger but we have a question. Which information do we have to write at “transaction code” field? Transaction (in this case CIC0), method or program?
You need to give the value of transaction code at "Transaction Code" field (in your case CIC0).
