#RPE #DNG How can I add attributes from a DNG module to the data source schema in RPE?

Emely Pi (155) | asked May 09 '18, 8:41 a.m.


I have custom attributes (like addtional information, comments, etc.) in a DNG module. I want to add these attributes to a table in RPE. How can I add these attributes to the data source schema in RPE so that I can access and use them in the template?

Thanks in advance!

You need not modify the schema as it already includes the custom attributes (dataSource/artifact/collaboration/attributes/objectType/customAttribute), which you can use in RPE template.
You can add a condition (name == "additional information") or data filter on dataSource/artifact/collaboration/attributes/objectType/customAttribute/name and print dataSource/artifact/collaboration/attributes/objectType/customAttribute/value

Could you give me an example?

I have a custom attribute "additional information" which I'd like to read out. It only consists of text (string). How would I do that?

You can refer this simple example template that depicts filter usage as well as using condition on Text element.
