Attribute types

  • core - basic attributes
  • def - extensional attribute with precisely defined purpose
  • opt - extensional attribute without strict purpose
  • virt - does not have a value on its own, its value is computed from other attributes and relations stored in Perun

Data types

  • Map (key-value storage)
  • List
  • Integer
  • String
  • LargeString (in case you need to store more than 4kb)
  • Boolean

Module options

(only for def, opt, virt)

Modules control correct definition of attributes:

  • syntax and semantics (def, opt)
  • automatic generation of values (def, opt)
  • the dependence of individual attributes on each other (def, opt, virt)
  • definition of how the attribute value should be computed (virt)
