}ElementAttribute dimensisons not showing up in "Manual" package selection


#1

Is there a setting somewhere for this? Some control objects show up in the list of dimensions, but }ElementAttributes seem to be conspicuously missing.

Hi @jpusztai,

Element Attributes are documented as part of the dimension. Pulse does not backup the cube per-se, but it documents the attributes (.dimx) and all the attribute values by element (.dmd)

Thanks, Erik. So }ElementAttribute dimensions should show up in the list of manual objects during package creation, correct? What should we do if they don’t?

Hi @jputzai,
Sorry if my previous answer was incomplete. Just to clarify, Dimension attributes are documented together with the dimension that they belong to and not as separate objects. You won’t see }ElementAttributes control dimension objects as part of a migration package.

Hi @jpusztai,

Just to add to Erik’s comment, when you migrate a dimension, }ElementAttribute cube will not show up in the list because Pulse uses instead a custom file .dimx file to migrate the attributes.

In the example below I picked the dimension CRM Version, when migrating you will CRM Version.dimd file:
