I've created many custom attributes, but either don't know how to set API name, Original name you can set with RENAME .
By the way, why do you want the API name ? For reports ? I use TypeNumber in this case ..
yes, I want to use API name in report, it's better to see for example Constants.OT_ORG_UNIT, but you are right, TypeNumber is OK.
By the way, using TypeNumber of custom attribute is not a good idea :). Unfortunately in Aris , when you restart the server , the TypeNumber values of custom attributes are changing and your report becomes useless... I had this problem recently when my reports became invalid after restarting and found the following solution :
"10106850-3ac3-11e1-4e4f-005056b1005f" - is GUID of attribute, it doesn't change !
Hope this will help you
Yes, this is better solution, thanx.
