Customize Attribute Defaults

Partial project attributes are defaulted using Groovy script, but if necessary we can change behavior for customer implementation.

Step-by-step guide

Prepare SQL script as necessary and execute on FlexDeploy database.

Following example is for EBS projects, OTHER object type and TARGET_LOCATION attribute default script. Note FD_OBJECT_TYPE_OVERRIDES_EBS and OTHER_TARGET_LOCATION_DEFAULTSSCRIPT for DB Properties data. Basically FD_OBJECT_TYPE_OVERRIDES_<Project Type> and <Object Type>_<Attribute Type Code>_DEFAULTSSCRIPT.

Other options are LISTDATA and VALIDATORSCRIPT, which also can be tweaked using same mechanism.

You can either wait for 10 minutes for changes to take effect or work with your Administrator to clear cache, see Admin Operations.

Once you prepare Groovy script, each ' needs to be replaced with '' in SQL statement.

-- make sure to change DB_PROPERTIES_DATA_ID, DB_PROPERTIES_ID as appropriate.
UPDATE FD.OBJECT_ATTRIBUTE_DEF set OVERRIDE_DEFAULTS_SCRIPT='Y' 
where object_type_id=(select object_type_id from fd.object_type where project_type='EBS' and object_type_code='OTHER') and object_attribute_code='TARGET_LOCATION';

You can also use PROJECT_ID, PROJECT_NAME, FOLDER_PATH variables in Defaults script if you want different behavior for specific Project(s). This is possible only for 4.5 build 10/27/2017 or later.
