Managing Information Elements
Information Type Dynamic Document Attribute
The Information Type attribute can identify similar types of content so that they can be grouped or displayed together with other elements of the same type in Servigistics InService. For example, Repair instructions or Assembly instructions can be grouped together.
By default, Information Type is not specified as the values are expected to be domain-specific. To define a set of Information Type attribute values, use WindchillUtilities > Type and Attribute Management utility. Navigate to Manage Types and then look for EPMDocument > Dynamic Document.
