Consistency with attributes of the linked dictionary item

Revision date:

Purpose

The attributes of an element should match the attributes of the linked dictionary entry.

Description

The Dictionary allows you to centrally manage objects, like IT Systems or roles, to facilitate re-use and ensure consistency. It is, however, possible to alter a linking element’s attribute in the Editor without changing the corresponding attribute of the referenced dictionary entry in the Dictionary. Afterwards, changes to the dictionary item attribute will no longer be transferred to the element attribute that was altered. This makes it impossible to properly manage the altered element centrally in the Dictionary.
