You must put all the values in ENUM to another Entity, make it 1-* association with your existing entity and use Reference set selector.

ENUM and drop down will not be suitable for your requirement.

Elaborated response

- Lets say you have Recipe entity and Category entity

- 1 Recipe can belong to multiple Category (in the below example I used *-* for different reasons)

- You will have all the Category related data saved in your database

  • Like master table for all categories
  • For which you must create pages to enter and save your master data
  • You cant keep it as ENUM 

- In the page where you will associate Recipe and Category

  • Use reference set selector
  • Generate the Select page and set it properly

  • Set the attribute with the association between Recipe and Category
  • Within the select page for Category, you can have datagrid to show all categories from database and you can configure for simple multi-selection

  • When you save Recipe, it will save the associations as well

Hello Pranaya,

If you are using drop down for an attribute then you can’t select multiple values.

The best and simple way to use the checkbox.
