Displaying analysis attributes for an Entity in IBM i2 Analyst's Notebook

Technote (FAQ)


How can I add an attribute to an ICON entity and display it for the number of
Entity Connections the entity has?


In List Items for the Entity, there is a column for Entity Connections, which is the
number of other entities to which this entity is connected.


This can be accomplished by performing the following steps:

  1. Create a custom attribute:
    • Edit Chart Properties -> Definitions folder -> Attribute classes -> New (create the new attribute for Entity Connections.)
  2. Combine the attributes:
    • Tools -> Combine Attributes
        • - Paste Value of Attributes Page = Entity Connections
        (The value comes from Edit Item Properties -> Attributes folder -> Analysis -> Entity Connections)
        • - Onto Value of Attribute = (the new attribute that was created in step 1)
        • - Paste Behavior = "pasted value"

If new entities are added and linked to, rerun step 2 again to see the changes.
