Create a simple attribute

Learn how to create a simple attribute for an entity type.

You need to have the ROLE_API role to create a new attribute. For more information, see topic ROLE_API Access permissions.

The Simple attribute type represents a single characteristic of an entity, relationship, or interaction. It's the only manifestation of the attribute type in Reltio multi-domain MDM that you must define as a data type. The nested, reference and analytic attribute types represent combinations or collections of simple sub attribute types. For more information on the Simple attribute type, see section Simple attribute type.

Watch the video or follow the steps bellow.

To create a new Simple attribute follow these steps:
  1. On the Reltio app selector, navigate to and select Console > Data Modeler > Entity types.
  2. Select the Entity type for which you want to create the new Simple attribute.
  3. In the Attributes page, select Create New.
  4. Leave the Simple entity type selected.
  5. Enter a suitable Name, Display name, and pick a Data Type from the drop-down list. Define (optionally) a Description, a Default value, and Lookup type.
  6. Toggle on the following attribute properties if you want to enable them:
    1. Hidden: to hide the attribute from the Reltio Hub and API.
    2. Searchable: to display the attribute on the Advanced Search.
    3. Faceted: to display the attribute on the Faceted Search.
    4. Required: to make it mandatory to enter a value for the attribute.
  7. Select Next to complete the Simple attribute creation process.

Your Simple type attribute is created, and you can find it at the bottom of your list for the current entity type.
