Issue/Introduction

  • 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.

Environment

Release : All Supported Releases

Component : CA PPM SAAS APPLICATION

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.
