Is there a way to use an attribute that is set on the context to drive an attribute for the objects within that context when they are created?
Something like assigning a "code" to the product, and make the attribute for a CR/CN/PR/Variance/DR etc match that same code
Unfortunately no, unless you create your own rule algorithm.
However, you can use the context name (something like containerName) to extract a sub string (that would be your code).
You could try to create an alias attribute, but it might not address your need as the value would change if the object is moved from a context to another.
That is exactly what I am looking for!
So I have a business attribute for the Context (GRC_PROJ_CODE) value 123456. I would like to be able to create new objects, and use that attribute to help in auto numebring. Something like CR-123456-(5dig seq). Any help you have on this would be appreciated
