Managing extensible objects

To support your object extensibility requirements, as an administrator, you can create extended entity attributes to a child node of the extensible object in IBM® Sterling Business Center.

You can dynamically define extended entity attributes to the child nodes of the following extensible objects:
  • Opportunity
  • Purchase Order
  • Quote
  • Return Order
  • Sales Order
Attributes are characteristics or specifications that define the corresponding extensible objects. You can create the following extended attribute types in Sterling Business Center, for a child node of the extensible object:
  • Text Entity Attribute
  • Integer Entity Attribute
  • Decimal Entity Attribute
  • Date Entity Attribute
  • Boolean Entity Attribute
You can create extended entity attributes to the child nodes of extensible objects, and modify the properties of the extended entity attributes using the Object Extensibility screen. The table below lists the number of extended entity attributes that can be created for each attribute type:
