Structure Attribute Properties

The next table presents the properties of the structure attribute element.

Property Description Optionality Default value Obs.
Name Name of the attribute. Mandatory Attribute <n> You should change the name of the attribute to a suitable value.
See rules for naming elements.
Mandatory Indicates whether the attribute is mandatory or optional. Mandatory Mandatory To define an attribute as optional, simply un-check this property.
Data Type Indicates the type of the attribute. You can use basic data types such as Text or Integer; or you might need more complex data types to handle this attribute. Integration Studio provides the Record and Record List data types. The definition of these two data types are based on the structures and entities you have available in your extension.

OutSystems does not allow recursive structures.
Mandatory The possible values are presented in a drop-down list. For more information, see available data types. Since OutSystems has its own data types, you should check how these data types are translated into Microsoft .NET or Java data types.
Default value Default value that is used if no value for this attribute is provided in the module that is using this action. Optional
Length Size of the attribute. Optional This property is only available for Text and Decimal types. In the Decimal type, this property corresponds to the number of digits, including the decimal part. If the values for these data types are not specified, default values are used. The rest of the data types have a fixed length.
Decimals Number of decimal places. Optional This property is only available when the data type is Decimal and corresponds to the number of digits of the decimal part.
Record Type If your attribute data type is Record or a Record List, you have to select the entities and/or structures that define the Record or Record List. Learn more about these data types. The value of this property is the name of the structure. In case you have a combination of structures, the value is (Join). Optional Mandatory only if the Data Type is Record or Record List.
Description Description of the parameter. Optional By default the description is empty, but you should provide a small description of the semantic of this parameter. The maximum allowed size for descriptions is 255 characters.
