Introduction

Aspect properties extend element properties to add metadata relevant to aspect engines.

As aspect engines consume external data from either a data file or cloud service, extra metadata is included to indicate where the property is available.

Data Tier

The data tier of a property describes which product tiers the property is available in. For example, an aspect engine could consume both a free and premium data file, and certain properties may not be available in both.
