When your dataset contains attributes that are not present in your app or discovery accelerator by default, you may want to add these additional attributes.
You can use these attributes inside the attribute selectors of your app or discovery accelerator, or you can add them to the list of available End-user filters.
You will not get a notification if you open the app or discovery accelerator with a dataset that contains attributes that are not already present. This means that you must check manually for new attributes.
Follow these steps to check if your dataset contains attributes that are not defined in your app or discovery accelerator.
Open the app or discovery accelerator in your development environment with the dataset that contains the new attributes.
Go to the Data tab.
Double-click on the table that contains the new attributes.
Click on OK in the Edit Connection String Table dialog.
The following message is displayed.
A message is displayed when the new attributes are detected. See the illustration below for an example.
The new attributes are added at the bottom of the table item list. Note that the availability of the new attributes is set to Private. See illustration below for an example.
These new attributes can now be used in multiple ways inside the app or discovery accelerator. For example, you can add them to the attribute selectors to slice your data based on them, or you can use the attributes for filtering if you add them to the End-user filters.
Make sure to set the availability of the attributes you want to use in your app or discovery accelerator to Public.
To change the availability of a table item, right click on it and select Availability from the context menu. See illustration below.
