Hierarchy Attributes

Hierarchy attributes let you define characteristics of product categories. This article shows you how to use hierarchy attributes in Fabric PIM.

Hierarchy attributes

  • Attribute title: This is the name of the attribute.
  • Attribute type: Various attribute types are available to maintain consistency and sort category information.
    • Text: This attribute type supports a sequence of characters. There are no restrictions on types of characters you can store in this attribute type. You can store text, numbers, special characters, or any combination.
    • Number only: This attribute type accepts, stores, and retrieves only numbers. You can use this attribute type when the value is always a number.
    • Date: This attribute type lets you add date-related information to the hierarchy. When you select the Date attribute type, a calendar appears for inputting the date. You must select one of the following formats:
      • MM/DD/YYYY
      • MM-DD-YYYY
      • DD/MM/YYYY
      • DD-MM-YYYY
      • YYYY/MM/DD
      • YYYY-MM-DD
    • Boolean: This attribute type represents the boolean value (True/False) for a hierarchy attribute.

The Hierarchy Attributes page shows a list of attributes along with their corresponding types.
