Can we modify ACO individual attributes using XPS explorer ?


No, you can modify Name, Desc but Attributes are presented like a global string.
If you would like to modify individual attributes and you can not use the AdminUI you can :

1. Use XPSExplorer to create a cart with only the ACO you want to modify

>> to create the cart you have to browse the ACO and add to the Cart

example :

OBJECT MENU ************************************************************ #2355

......................... Object Meta Data ........................
         XID: CA.SM::[email protected]
Actual Class: CA.SM::AgentConfig
  Base Class: CA.SM::AgentConfig
