Master Data Management

Add a Scenario Level Default Value Rule to a Category

A Designer can add a default value rule that indicates a default value for a column and whether the value in the column is mandatory. Before performing this task, a category and scenario must be added. Refer to MDM Design Process Overview for more information on creating elements in MDM.

After a scenario level default value rule has been added to a category, it can be assigned to a scenario in that category. Refer to Assign a Default Value Rule to a Scenario for more information.

To add a scenario level default value rule to a category in MDM:

  1. Select Master Data Management > Design in the Navigation pane.
  2. Click Vertical View for the category.
  3. Click Edit.

    View the field descriptions for the Category page's Vertical View.

  4. Select the data source for the condition table in the Condition Table Datasource Id list box.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Click the Rules and Actions tab.
  7. Click the Default Value Rules icon.

    View the field descriptions for the Default Value Rules page.

  8. If no records exist, the page displays in add mode. Otherwise, click Add.
  9. Enter a name for the rule in the NAME field.
  10. Select the table from the TABLE NAME list box.
  11. Select the column to which the rule applies in the COLUMN NAME list box.
  12. Enter a value for the rule in the CONSTANT field.
  13. Click the IS MANDATORY check box to enable it (optional).

    NOTE: If enabled, the default value is considered required and cannot be changed when the scenario is being executed within a request.

    NOTE: This configuration MUST be enforced by the Content WebApp. MDM does not enforce this setting.
