BrainBoutique leverages a custom-made tool called YAAS-SCULPTOR for Hybris YAAS consultancy: Experience from multiple earlier Hybris projects proved that data modelling is one of the hardest and most time-consuming tasks in aligning requirements; strong business involvement is required and modelling should be as agile and reactive as possible...
The tool helps to work around limitations of Schema API and facilitates an agile data modelling approach. It can be used within the "Builder" or as standalone tool:
- Tool-supported data modelling
- Complex attribute types (Unit-of-measure aware numbers, validation regexps, configuration specific values, ...)
- Semantic Versioning (SemVer) support when uploading to (currently limited) YAAS Schema service
- Efficient data entry support (keyboard focus, highly dynamic, no page reloads, ...)
The tool is still in early beta stage - and it can be expected that also SAP Hybris is improving the Schema API to support more of the advanced attribute types YAAS-SCULPTOR is already offering.
Refer to following screenshots to get a first impression:

Publishing to YAAS - note that YAAS Schema implementation is currently way less advanced than what YAAS-SCULPTOR offers!
To give you a chance to easily try out YAAS-SCULPTOR it is recommended to use a standalone dev version (no support!) outside Builder.
Try YAAS_SCULPTOR now!

To install YAAS-SCULPTOR in your YAAS project, you need to perform following steps (as YAAS-SCULPTOR is not yet packaged as a Marketplace building block)
- Open Builder

- Click "Builder Modules"
- Click "+ Builder Module"
- Select scope hybris.schema_manage
- Identifier: yaassculptor

You should then see a new menu item "Sculptor - Data Modeler" in your Builder menu.
