Partslink Classification: Can Default Value be empty? (WC 10.1 M30)

Partslink Classification: Can Default Value be empty? (WC 10.1 M30)

How can the Default Value of an Attribute be set to empty?  Not all Attributes need a Value, and the user shouldn't have to 'delete' Values for irrelevant Attributes.

Leaving the Default Value empty, results in error message; even when having an empty field in Constraints \ Allowed Values and Required is not checked.

We would like to use the same solution for all types of Attributes (Integer, Real, Real with Unit, String)

Solution we have found so far is to use '-' for String type Attributes and '0' for Integer, Real and Real with Unit Attributes.

I posted an article on how to handle this. We are also on 10.1 M030. In CounterPart you have to leave a default value as you have seen. The rest is addressed with a little Javascript customization

Blanking out default values in 10.1 for Classification Attributes

Re: Partslink Classification: Can Default Value be empty? (WC 10.1 M30)

Thanks for your reaction.  Unfortunately, this solution isn't working for us, the values are also blanked out during 'Check Out and Edit' which results in a huge risk of changing data.
