Example placeholders in values and descriptions of list service attributes

In the Management Portal at Entitlement Catalog, when you configure list service attributes, you can use placeholders to specify values and descriptions. This allows you to configure services that dynamically resolve the values and descriptions of list service attributes. For example, you can use a person attribute as a value in a list service attribute. During the service transaction, this person attribute then resolves dynamically depending on the person that requests or subscribes to the service. This allows you to use personalized options in the list.


Consider the following scenario:

  1. At Data Model > People Attributes, you have configured the people attributes "E-mail address" and "Phone number".
  2. At Entitlement Catalog, you configure a service with a list service attribute.
  3. You configure the service attribute with the following values:
    • #Requester[e-mailaddress.value]
    • #Requester[phonenumber.value]

In this scenario, when someone requests the service, his e-mail address and phone number will be resolved as values of the service attribute.
