Setting type properties

After you add types to your schema, you must set type properties.

Before you begin

You must have a schema with types.


  1. Select a type and click the context menu of the type.
  2. Click Properties.
    The Properties dialog box appears.
  3. Enter the name, class and description details of the type.
  4. Choose the class of the type as Category, Group, or Item.
    The properties of the selected type appear.
  5. Define the required properties for the selected type.
  6. Click Advanced properties to provide additional property details of the type.

    For information about type properties, see related links at the end of this page.

    Note: In case you import any JSON or XSD format schema, you cannot modify the properties of any type of the schema.
  7. Save your changes.


The type properties of the schema are defined and saved successfully.

What to do next

When you finish defining the properties for all the types of your schema, you must prepare a structural view of the schema by using drag-and-drop method. See Designing a structural view of the schema.
