Attribute Array

Attributes {type: array (obj: Attribute)}
The array panel displays a list of the defined Entity Attribute objects and provides an Add button for creating additional Attributes. The array allows editing of the four required Attribute object elements. The message icons at the end of each Attribute object will provide users with alerts for required fields for the each Attribute object, and if the Attribute object has an associated Domain. Click the More ... button to access the full set of Attribute elements.
