Attributes in the Jasper PIM are flexible fields that can be used to power faceted search applications, organize data for internal use, or display specialized assets on product detail pages. They are a place to store all your custom data points.
Types of Attributes
PIM attributes can contain the following types of data:
- Simple Text (can also be used to store URL references for assets)
- Text Area (larger text strings)
- Select Box
- Multiselect Box
Attribute sets are used to group attributes together for the purpose of assignment. Attribute sets can be assigned to products individually or in bulk allowing quick configuration of the appropriate attributes for a given product or group of products. Attributes can exist as part of multiple attribute sets.
Display groups are configurable groupings of attributes for display purposes only. Attributes can only belong to a single display group. The attribute tab on product pages will contain a collapsible list of all the display groups that contain attributes assigned to the product. This allows you to store large numbers of attributes on the product while maintaining an easy and intuitive workflow when assigning or editing values.
