Attribute groups (form) (Retail) [AX 2012]

Updated: October 12, 2012

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2

Click Product information management > Setup > Attributes > Attribute groups.

Use this form to group sets of user-defined attributes together. Attributes represent the characteristics of a product, such as the size of a television screen or the RAM for a computer. You can assign attribute groups to retail products, retail channels, or retail categories. An attribute can be included in one or more attribute groups.

You can also set default values for selected attributes that are included in the attribute group. For example, if you add an attribute for color to an attribute group, you can select the color Blue as the default attribute value. When the attribute group is added to a retail product that includes a color as one of its attributes, the color Blue is displayed as the default color for that product.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
