- Fixed attributes
For fixed attributes, indicate whether the task should fail if a change is detected in a fixed attribute.
- Changing attributes
For changing attributes, indicate whether the task should change outdated or expired records, in addition to current records, when a change is detected in a changing attribute. An expired record is a record that has been replaced with a newer record by a change in a historical attribute (a Type 2 change). Selecting this option may impose additional processing requirements on a multidimensional object constructed on the relational data warehouse.
