Object Attributes
The following table describes (in alphabetical order) attributes that are common among several Windchill objects. Objects also have attributes that are unique to their object type. For more information, see the help specific to the object type in which you are interested, such as part attributes.
Attributes can be properties that are assigned to an object by default or values that you specify when creating or updating an object. The attributes display in fields and columns throughout Windchill.
Your site determines which attributes display and whether they are mandatory or optional. The site also manages the order and grouping of the attributes.
