  • Hi Ahishek_300,

    Yes you can add a default value for a domain based attribute:

    1. In the main page in MDS go to System Administration

    2. GO to Manage and choose Business Rules

    3. Once in Business Rules Maintiance page click the + sigh to add a new rule

    4. Expand Actions in the left section and drag "defaults to" to the Actions button on the right 

    5. Go to attributes in the left section and drag your domain based attribute to the "select an attribute" on the right

    6. A menue pops up and asks you to select which default value you want to assign.

    7. Save your changes

    Important: Make sure to publish your business rule so changes can take affect.
