Naming standards and system attribute names

Attribute names must be unique in the entire repository.

This requirement promotes a unified naming convention that is important for displaying and querying information consistently. It also prevents users from defining multiple attributes with the same name to represent different information.

When creating or renaming an attribute, you need to make sure that you do not reuse one of the following system attribute names to avoid name collisions in the select statement of a worksheet:
  • "Business Name"
  • "Business Name Inferred"
  • "Business Name Inferred Origin"
  • "Business Description"
  • "Business Description Inferred"
  • "Business Description Inferred Origin"
  • "Content Name"
  • "Content Description"
  • "Native Id"
  • "Labels"
  • "Classifications"
  • "Classifications Matched"
  • "Classifications Approved"
  • "Classifications Rejected"
  • "Collections"
  • "Term Classification"
  • "Used"
  • "Updated Date"
  • "Viewed Date"
  • "Workflow Actions"
  • "Workflow State"
  • "Workflow Published"
  • "Deprecated"
  • "Context"
  • "External URL"
  • "User Tags"
  • "Certified"
  • "Endorsement Count"
  • "Warning Count"
  • "Comment Count"
  • "Column Statistics"
