What are attributes for ?
Attributes allow you to define your resources. Your documents, your assets, your users and your interventions can be define thanks to attributes.
What are attributes ?
Attributes are data of all types (number, numbers, images, etc.).
For example, a motor can be define by:
- his power
- his torque
- its rotation speed
- its lifespan.
Those datas will be considered as attributes. Depending on the attribute, we will come to associate a type of attribute.
For example, a power is expressed using a number. So the power of a motor will be a Number attribute.
Pratically, how do you create an attribute?
Context : Imagine an "Anomalies" database, listing all of your anomalies. Each anomaly can be described by a date. We are going to create a Date type attribute then we are going to assign this attribute to the Anomalies database. Thus, all of our anomalies can be described with this attribute.
1. Go to the Databases tab.
2. Click on the "Anomalies" database (if it does not exist, you can create it)
3. Click on the Structure tab
4. Click on "Create a new Attribute"
5. Give the name "Anomaly date". Choose Date as the type.
6. Click on "Create attribute"
The values of the attributes can be modified by your operator if you connect your forms to your data.
Thus, your operators will be able to characterize the different resources of your databases. Updates to these databases are done in real time.
It is possible to determine attributes for assets, documents, users and interventions.
An attribute name cannot exceed 255 characters.
