Example: table service attributes using placeholders in values and descriptions

In the Management Portal at Entitlement Catalog, when you configure table service attributes, you can use placeholders to specify values. This allows you to configure services that dynamically resolve the values of table service attributes. For example, you can use a person attribute as a value in a table 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 table.


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 table service attribute.
  3. You configure table columns in 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 in the table service attribute.
