Description

Default Generators enable you to auto-select a Generator based on the name of an Attribute. 


A Default Generator contains a list of synonyms that act like a list of reference values for assigning the Generator to an Attribute. Default Generators are shared with the entire organization.


GenRocket has its own Default Generators, which are assigned when Attributes with certain names are created. You may also create your own Default Generators to be assigned to an Attribute based on its name.


This article shows how to do the following:

  • Edit an Existing Default Generator
  • Create a New Default Generator


How to View Default Generators

  • Expand the Options Menu in the top navigation bar.

  • Click the Manage Default Generators option.


How to Update a Default Generator

  • Find the Generator you want to update within the GenRocket Default Generators tab.

  • Click the Edit (Pencil) icon.


  • For a Default Generator, you are able to edit, delete, or add a synonym.

  • A synonym is similar to a name you would give an Attribute such as "address" or "street".


Adding a Synonym

  • Click on the add new synonym input field.

     
  • Enter the name of the new synonym.

     
  • Click the Save button.


Editing a Synonym

  • Click on a synonym to select it.

  • Next, click on the Edit (Pencil) icon to make changes to the synonym.


  • Make any needed changes and press the Enter/Return Key on your keyboard.


  • Click the Save button after making the changes.


Deleting a Synonym

  • Click on the synonym to select it. 
  • Then click on the Delete (Trash Can) icon to remove it from the configuration.


  • Click the Save button after making the changes.


How to Create a New Default Generator

If you do not see the Generator you want to update in this table, a new one may also be added.

  • Click the Create Default Generator button at the bottom of the table.


  • Enter a Name for the Default Generator.
  • Select a Generator from the drop-down menu.


  • Input one or more synonyms. A synonym is similar to a name you would give an Attribute such as "address" or "street".

  • Press the Enter/Return key to submit it.


  • Click the Save button once all synonyms have been added.


The Default Generator has been created with the needed synonyms and is now saved. Every time you create an Attribute with the same name as one of your Default Generator synonyms that Generator will automatically be applied to it.
