Is it possible to sort the value list of a multi-value attribute in the same order as one can see in attribute configuration?

For example: I have defined an attribute with 3 values:

  • Cat
  • Dog
  • Horse

and this is the order that a any user will see in the  combo-box when he will assign a value for the attribute (of a model, an object,...).

Since it is possibile to change the predefined order, I need to know the current one. But in ArisMetaModel class I didn't find any method to do it.

Does anyone know if it is possible and how to?

Hi Maggiu,

as far as I know there is no way to save some predefined value for an attribute. However, "incidental" changes could be easily avoided using documentation in a common repository, where all the users should make their references of how to use the ARIS resources. There you could document all of attribute's changes, reasons for the changes, etc. A dedicated project's methodology document would save a lot of time and would prevent issues like this.

Best regards
Tony
