  • How do I add a custom attribute so that it shows up in the selectable list when i go to Portfolio > Waterlines > Define Ranking Rules > Add?
  • I tried adding to Attribute Registry and saving API for attribute.

Cause

  1. Only certain types of attributes are eligible for Ranking Rules.
  2. These are attributes that can be converted into a simple number.
  3. This was confirmed by Sustaining Engineering to be working as per design via CLRT-81532

Resolution

  1. Data types eligible to be used in Ranking Rules:
    • Numbers
    • Dates
    • Numeric Lookups
    • Money
    • Percent
    • Boolean
  2. Any attribute types outside of this including string lookup and time-varying attributes (TSVs) are not eligible.
