Restricted List of Values

Closed List of Values, Enumerated Values, Permitted Values



/riˈstrɪktəd lɪst ʌv ˈvæljuz/



Metadata indicating the range of possible values for an attribute to a pre-defined list.

Using a Restricted List of Values helps maintain a clean, normalized list of values. A select box on a website which allows a user to choose a value from a restricted drop down list can help a user sort through products and narrow search time. However, within a PIM system a Restricted List of Values may cause delays or inaccuracies in entering data if the correct value for a product is not on the list.
