Issue/Introduction

Description:

How can the names of the CI User Attributes in the SOI Console, i.e. -

CI User Attribute (1)
CI User Attribute (2)
CI User Attribute (3)
CI User Attribute (4)
CI User Attribute (5)

...be changed to a customized string?

Solution:

The attribute names shown in the console are defined in .xml files on the UI server:

SOI\SamUI\webapps\sam\WEB-INF\common\config\column-user-attr-x-config.xml

By default the name entry points to parameters defined in a "properties" file imbedded in a .jar file. But this can be replaced.

E.g. in file column-user-attr-1-config.xml the name is defined like:

"<name>com.aprisma.spectrum.app.topo.client.UsertAttr1</name>"

Change this to:

<name>My custom Attr 1</name>

The field will display in the SOI Console UI labeled "My custom Attr 1".

After this change, open a new console and it will appear right away. There is no need to recycle any services.
