This idea is based on a support call I logged. A global attribute not displaying when setting it to "read only" in the create UI even though a default value has been specified. see attached document.
PTC response to the call was as follows:
"So sorry for not satisfying your request.
A it is working to spec and you can not accept the workaround, I am thinking how can I help it.
When I check another cases for the request, there was no other way.
Development’s comment :
A default value that is defined in the Type manager will not be automatically assigned by default. This default value is essentially a “suggested value”, something that will be available to the user in the UI by default, and if they wish to keep it/use it, then they can populate/leave the input field populated with this value. When an input field populated with this value, then it will be saved.
When the attribute is marked read-only (unassignable) during a Create operation, then it means – “prevent a value from being set on this attribute”.
Do you want to request an enhancement for the issue? I can help to guide the process.
Or there could consider complementary customization to keep the default value when the document is created?"
Hence this Product Idea.
This functionality will assist in the preperaiton of attributes being assigned after it is classified. We are setting default attribute values at the node level, and do not want the user to be able to modify the values, just see them.
If this was fixed you could assign attribute values based on the classification nodes chosen. This functionality is important to support an use case we are having right now where we want to pass an attribute to the ERP system based on the classification node assigned.
We are archiving your idea as part of a general review. This action is based on the age of your idea and the total number of votes received, as per this announcement.
You can always post a new idea with all the details required in the form.
