Changing name of custom attribute


Article ID: 240303


Updated On:


CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration


We need to change the  AttributeName of a custom attribute that was defined incorrectly.  Currently it is "Incorrect_1" We would like it to be "Correct_1" - how can we achieve this?



<CustomAttributeDefinition version="1.0.0">
<Label>Correct 1</Label>
<Description>Correct 1</Description>




Only the label, description and hidden fields are updateable. The rest should be locked


Release : 21.2

Component :


In this case, since the fields that the customer would like to update are Attribute Name, Attribute Q Name and Column, these cannot be updated

1. Create another custom attr then and use it.   Just never use Custom_3

2. Set Custom_3 Hidden to true to make sure it doesn't appear in UI for Inventory views.

Additional Information

The <Internal> section should never be touched.   That's how DA stores the column in PC and DA databases
