Define Attributes

In this IMG activity you determine possible values for business process attributes.

The R/3 System offers the following attributes:

A later R/3 System release will support inherited attributes for allocation, including sender, receiver, or manually-set attributes. At this time, you can maintain time-based dependency, but not allocation.

In addition, you can maintain the text fields "First attribute" and "Second attribute". The R/3 System does not valuate these fields.
