Identify attribute type

Identify attribute type

I have list of attributes which might be String, Double, Boolean or List values. I would like to identify what type of attribute is it based on the name of the attribute. Could anyone help me how to get to know the type of attribute?

Re: Identify attribute type

Hi Austin Nabors-Keating‌,

Use AttributeTypeSummary API to get this Data types for attribute defined on any object type.

PersistableAdapter obj = new PersistableAdapter(cr, null , Locale.US,null);

      /* load attribute */

      obj.load("GROUP_EFFECTIVITY");

      Object enumValue = obj.get("GROUP_EFFECTIVITY");

      System.out.println("IBA Value :: " + enumValue);

AttributeTypeSummary ats = obj.getAttributeDescriptor("GROUP_EFFECTIVITY");

      System.out.println("Display Name :: " + ats.getLabel());

System.out.println("Data Type :: " + ats.getDataType());

      System.out.println("Description :: " + ats.getDescription());

Output will looks like below:
