Hi All,

Can anybody tell me how to create an attribute again which is already present in the list?


Attribute A is present in leaf nodes B & C .

But A in leaf node B is entirely different from A in leaf node C(same name but different values)

    Hi Pramod,

    In MDM Data Manager, till there is no functionality available using which we can create duplicate attribute because it will show error "Attribute already exists".

    May be this is possible using MDM Java APIs.

    Using MDM Java APIs we can create two fields having the same Name and code in the same table which is not possible by going into MDM console manually. About Attributes i m not sure because i haven't tried this.

    one more suggestion, as per your requirement what i feel, there is no need for creating duplicate Attributes having different text values, coz even using single attribute you can add all the values here in only one Attribute which can solve your purpose.

    As you want, what i feel For Example,

    *Categories say "shoes" * linked to Attribute1 say "color" having Text values"Black and white"

    LLy there is another "categories say " shirts" linked to Attribute1 say "color" as you want same name of Attribute but having different value say int his case having Text Values " Red and Yellow" right

    Now you want in Record pane when you select Category shoes you can select color "black and white" lly if you select shirts you can select color "Red and Yelllow"

    For this you dnt need to create duplicate Attribute because, Suppose even if these both Catagories selected to single Attribute Color only but should contain all the four text Values "Black, White, Red and Yellow" then even for selecting different categories say shirt you can select Color "Yellow" from the dropdown list which can fullfill your requirement.

    Hope it helps you,

    Rewards if found useful,
