Grouping Business Object Attributes

In Business Manager, attributes appear in groups. These groups are system-defined, via the System Object Types module. To show a system attribute, the attribute must belong to a group. Otherwise, it doesn't appear on a page within Business Manager.

This topic provides an example of how to group attributes that appear on the Product details page. The example adds attributes that are specific to digital cameras.

  1. Select Administration > Site Development > System Object Types > Product > Attribute Grouping tab.

    A list of existing groups appears. You can either create a new group for the attribute, or select an existing group.

  2. Create a new group (Digital Camera).
    1. In the ID field, enter a group ID (DigCamera)
    2. In the Name field, enter a group name (Digital Camera).
    3. Click Add.
  3. Click the Edit link for the new group (Digital Camera).

    You can see that there are no attributes assigned to this group.

  4. Click the ellipsis (...) to access a list of all Product (system object) attributes available to this group. Enter Digital in the Search box and click Find.
  5. Click Select All and Select.

    All available attributes are now assigned to the group.

  6. To see the additional attributes, select site > Merchant Tools > Products and Catalogs > Products. Select any product.
  7. Click the Attributes tab.
    The new attributes (in the new group) are listed toward the bottom of the page.
