An Attribute is a property that helps describes a participant in a match. For example the type of rifle a participant is using (e.g. Sporter vs Precision air rifle) or an age group the participant is a member of (e.g. Junior, Open, Senior).

Attributes are highly configurable.  Each Attribute will have one or more fields. Each field may be configured to be any value the user types in, a value from a pre-configured list, or a combination.

There are two types of Attributes. Attributes that rely on user input (described below) and Derived Attributes that get their value from one or more other attributes. An example of a Derived Attribute is an age group that gets its value from an athlete’s date of birth.

An Attribute Value represents the data that is stored.

Simple Attribute

A ‘Simple Attribute’ is a special type of Attribute. It is when MultipleValues is false, there is only one AttributeField in Fields, and that one AttributeField has MultipleValues set to false.
