Attribute Maintenance

An Attribute, once created in its basic form can be maintained. This includes modifying its name, changing the default data type, creating a local definition, and generating its overall definition. The process of maintaining the attributes semantics through the addition of prefix and suffix is not part of this process. Once added, however, this Attribute Maintenance process is used to complete the attribute. The process to maintain attributes include:

  • Start the Specified Data Model Metabase System Module
  • Select the DBMS
  • Enter User Name and Password
  • Select the Menu Item, Attributes, then the subordinate item, Maintenance, and finally Maintain Attributes.
  • Select a Subject Area
  • Select an Entity
  • Select an Attribute
  • If modification, Press the Change button
  • Uncheck the Freeze All Names check box
  • Modify the Common Business Name if needed
  • Delete the Name, User Name, and Local Definition entries.
  • Press the Reset button
  • Enter a local definition
  • Press the AutoDef button to generate the definition
