After following the documentation to create custom attributes they are not visible on context pages.  How can we make the custom variables visible in the CAPC user interface?

CAPM 3.x

Per the documentation: we note the following:

Specify whether to hide the property by default from the inventory views in the Performance Center user interface. If this tag is set to "true," you can manually choose to display the custom attribute in the user interface. This tag impacts whether custom attributes appear by default from the inventory views only. They are available by default in other areas.
Default: "true"


To change the value to false you can do the following in a REST client:

Method: PUT 

URL: http://DA:8581/rest/customattributedefinition/ITEMID


<CustomAttributeDefinition version='1.0.0'>




After doing this the custom attributes should now be visible in the CAPC user interface
