The following procedure describes how to configure/manage the Groups editor. Use Groups to organize attributes into logical groupings shown as sections in a tab.

  1. Log into EnterWorks Classic as a user with Administrative privileges.

  1. Open the Repositories tab, either from selecting it from the Quick Links dropdown or by opening the Feature bar, opening the Model folder, and selecting Repositories.

  2. Open the appropriate sub-folder and select the desired repository.

  3. Open the Manage Model dropdown and select Attribute Groups. The list of all attribute groups for the repository will be displayed, in the order they are displayed.

Table Description automatically generated

  1. To add a new group, open the Action dropdown and select New.

  2. To edit an existing group, select the group, then open the Action dropdown and select Edit.

  3. The Attribute Group – Details window will appear.

  1. Edit the configuration options as desired:

  • Name: The name of the new group. Do not include special characters in the name, such as & < > ".

  • Description: There are two ways you can use the description field:

    • Enter a description of the group.

    • Enter text that dictates how many columns will be used to display the group’s attributes in the EnterWorks New UI. The format for the text is:

(<number-of-columns-the-group-uses>,<number-of-columns-for-each-attribute>)

Note that there is no space between the comma and the second value.

  • <number-of-columns-the-group-uses>: The width of the display area is 12 columns. This setting indicates the number of columns the group will span.

  • <number-of-columns-for-each-attribute>: The area the group will use is also divided into 12 columns. This setting indicates how many columns in the group’s area each attribute will use. If this number is set to 0 (zero), all 12 columns will be used, just as if it was set to 12.

For example:

  • (12,3): The group would use all twelve columns of the display area, (the entire width). The attributes would be displayed in four columns.

  • (12,6): The group would use all twelve columns of the display area. The attributes would be displayed in two columns.

  • (6, 3): The group would use six of the twelve display columns. The attributes would be displayed in 4 columns. Each column would use three of the group’s display columns.

  • (3,0): The group would use three of the twelve display columns. The attributes would be displayed in one column, (the full width of the group’s display area).

The image below shows the Summary group configured in a (12,4) format, which results in the attributes being displayed in three columns.

If an attribute group does not use the full width of the display area, if the next attribute group can fit in the remaining columns, EnterWorks will place the next attribute group alongside the first attribute group.

  • Attribute Tab: Which attribute tab the group will be shown in.

  • Collapsed: Whether the group will be initially displayed collapsed or expanded.

  • Group Type:

    • <not specified>: If this field is left empty, it is assumed that the group will be used to display attributes.

    • Link Relationship: The group will be used to display link relationships.

    • Variants: The group will be used to display variants. When a user tells EnterWorks to generate the variants, EnterWorks will use the attributes specified in the group to generate the variants. It will generate a record for each combination of existing values of the attributes.

For instance, if the record’s variant attributes have the following values:

  • Color: Red, Green, Blue

  • Size: Small, Medium, Large, Extra-large

  • Sleeve Length: Long, Short

There would be 24 variant records generated, (3 x 4 x 2):

  • Variant record 1: Red, Small, Long

  • Variant record 2: Red, Medium, Long

…. Etc. ….

  • Variant record 24: Blue, Extra-large, Short
