    Hi All,

    could you please share, what is the difference between valueType property in CharacteristicSpecification and in CharacteristicValueSpecification, see picture.

    They both have the same description: "A String. A kind of value that the characteristic value can take on, such as numeric, text and so forth."

    Hi Anna

    Thanks for the question.

    At least in principle, the valueType should be the same in both of these sub-entities. It probably doesn't make sense that a characteristic spec defined as "number" could have a list of valid values with different types, e.g. "string".

    However the model allows for maximum flexibility, I suppose just in case that there is a use case where the values are specified in one way and the base characteristic is specified in a different way.

    Hope it helps

    Hi Jonathan,

    Thank you for the reply. I can't imagine the proper use case, but let it be 😊
