In 'Standard Attribute' add the Name of the attribute, use toggle Required if you want that field to be mandatory , select the 'Attribute Type' which is a datatype of the atttribute and click 'Create'
In 'Derived Attribute' add the Name of the derived attribute,use toggle Required if you want that field to be mandatory, shortId, Type of derived attribute ie script or formula or rules and in the last the Attribute Type of the derived attribute value

Go to Tasks section from the left side nav and select the task for which you want to view the attributes
Go to 'Attributes' section from the left side nav
