Modifying a Vocabulary
1. Choose the Vocabulary Editor tab to enter the Vocabulary editor.
2. Select the node you want to edit to display its properties, as shown:
3. Modify the properties with the following considerations:.
*It is a good idea to close any open editors for Rulesheets, Ruleflows and Ruletests in the project before changing the Vocabulary.
*When modifying an entity, attribute, or association's properties in the Vocabulary -- such as changing the data type of an attribute -- consider the impact in conditions and actions in the project's Rulesheets, as well as in Ruleflows and Ruletests.
*Renaming an entity, attribute, or association does not automatically perpetuate to the project's Rulesheets, Ruleflows and Ruletests; therefore, renaming should be avoided or performed very carefully. When you use refactoring instead, the changes are evaluated and changed throughout the project.
*Deleting an entity, attribute, or association from the Vocabulary can impact conditions and actions in the project's Rulesheets, as well as Ruleflows and Ruletests. When reviewing Rulesheets after a Vocabulary deletion, choose Advanced view to reveal any lingering references to the deleted items in the Scope section.
*After editing the vocabulary, save it before opening other editors. Then open the project's Rulesheets, Ruleflows and Ruletests to expose errors that might have resulted from the changes made to the Vocabulary.
