How can a user set values for an attribute of type "Normal" using web services?

Problem:

How can a user set values for an attribute of type "Normal" using web services?

Resolution:

Using the SilkCentral Test Manager GUI, setting a value for attributes would be done in Test Manager | Settings | Attributes tab (see below):

Using Web Services you can also set values for an attribute of type "Normal". Please see example below that logs in as admin | admin and sets a Value ("IE 6") to the attribute "Browser"

Note: Attributes and their options must be defined by using the GUI before they can be used via web services
