[resolved] "Default Value" for Data Model Entity

Good morning,
I wonder if it is possible to define a default value for an element of my data model? I named it "status", type "string" and would like to set it to "new" as default within the data model. Later I would like to change that value with a job.
Can anyone help?

Hi,
It is better if you specify the version that you are working on. If the version that you are working is 5.0.1, then you can set a default value on any element of your data model. Right click on the element and select Set the Default Value Rule, in that you can select any string function for string type of element. In that you can select any function like uppercase() or lowercase(). You can specify the value as parameter.
For example :
fn:upper-case("new")
In GUI, it displays as NEW for the element.

Thank you, but I don't find that property (see attached image). I am working on the latest version 5.0.2.

Hi dvz.berger,
Default/Visible rules are located in the "Properties" tab of the Data Model (when you select an element), in "Rule" subtab.
See enclosed screenshot.

Hi,
The visible/default rules are only available on the Enterprise version.
