An Attribute is one of the characteristics that define the features of a product.

For example, Phone is a product. Its color, battery life, operating system, camera resolution, to name a few, are its Attributes. DCKAP PIM supports 12 Attribute types, each of which has custom properties that can be assigned based on your product.

The users who have access permission to the 'Attribute' can view the below details in the system.

Note: code is used to identify the Attribute if there are multiple attributes with the same names.

Allow Past Date

If the "Allow Past Date" attribute is enabled, it indicates that the attribute is designed to accept only dates in the past. Therefore, if a user selects a future date for that attribute, a validation error message should be displayed, indicating that only past dates are allowed.

Allow Feature Date

Similarly, if the "Allow Future Date" attribute is enabled, it means that the attribute is intended for selecting upcoming dates. In this case, if a user chooses a past date, a validation error message should be shown, indicating that only future dates are accepted.
