Attribute Browser and Aliases


(Galen Menzel) #1

Hi all,

Just checking: the attribute browser never displays aliases, correct?

What are the advantages of this choice?

Would there be any advantage to showing aliases in the attribute browser?

Just curious what the community thinks.

Thanks!

Best,

Galen

I don’t believe so, otherwise you don’t get true counts/listings of members. The query function, IIRC from it’s genesis, is to reduce the in-scope items. IOW, it is not an alternate agent view.

If aliases were allowed in scope, I’d suggest it be a non-default option to avoid existing docs giving incorrect results…
