Description: This solution discusses the difference between regular and unique attributes

Environment: All

Version: All


A regular or non-unique attribute is one that can be on the same record multiple times. A unique attribute is one that is marked as 'only allow one per record' on the attribute itself within RE > Configuration > Attributes.  


In order to allow the same 'category' of an attribute with different descriptions to be added to a constituent record, you will need to make a selection of "Add new attribute" instead of "Update existing" for the 'non-unique attributes processing rules option.  


Because there can only be one 'unique attribute' per record, the only options are to "update existing" or "Ignore the new value".
