Creating Custom Attributes for Web Services

You can customize web service configurations, credentials, and profiles by adding custom attributes to their system objects. When added to an attribute group, these custom attributes can be edited in Business Manager.

  1. Select Administration > Site Development > System Object Types.
  2. On the System Object Type List page, select ServiceConfig, ServiceCredential, or ServiceProfile.
  3. On the System Object Type List page, click the Attribute Definitions tab.
    If you have already created a custom attribute, you can find and add it, otherwise, proceed to the next step.
  4. On the System Object Type List page Attribute Definitions tab, click New.
  5. Enter the properties for the custom attribute and click Apply.
    These attributes are created identically to any other custom attributes.
  6. Click << Back.
  7. Click the Attribute Grouping tab.
  8. On the System Object Type List page Attribute Groupings tab, click Edit for the section on the tab where you want to add your attributes.
    Note: You must add the attribute to a grouping to see it in Business Manager.
  9. Click to browse for the custom attribute you created, check its checkbox, and click Select.
