Enumerated values
You can define lists of values that are the set of allowable values associated with a Vocabulary attribute. In the Basic Tutorial, you saw how we could delimit the options for a containerType by defining labels and their respective values:
Then, when you are in the Rulesheet, the defined values -- as well as null and blank -- were offered.
Importing enumerated values from a database
When you use the Enterprise Data Connector and establish connection to a database, additional functionality is added to the DataTypes tab:
You can specify a column within a table of the connected database to retrieve and import the name and values (or just the values) to populate the selections to the specified attribute.
Note: For more information about enumerations and retrieving values from databases, see:
