Data Structures Types

As part of truedat's customization an admin user will be able to setup following parameters for a structure type:
    Template to be used for extra information. Extra information is what we call to the metadata that can be introduced manually through the application by users with permission.
    Metadata to be displayed defining custom metadata tabs. Select which metadata extracted from the source systems user want to display in an aditional metadata tab.
To register an association between type of structure and template, we will be asked for the following information:
    Type: The type of structure that we want to associate must be selected. A list with all the types that we currently have in our data catalog will be displayed.
    Default translation: We can define a text to display by default instead of the internal value of the structure type.
    Template: We will select the template with scope "dd" that we want to associate with the selected structure type. A list with the existing templates in that scope will be displayed We can manage the relationship of our data catalog templates with the different types of existing structures in our instance. This will allow us to assign the same template to one or more types of structures. It is not mandatory that all our structures have a template assigned. In the case in which a type of structure does not have a template assigned when we navigate to said structure, the "Additional information" tab will not be displayed.
    We will allow to also define custom metadata tabs. For each tab the name of the tab and the metadata to be displayed will be selected.
Once the configuration is registered, we can see the summary and delete any existing configuration. In case of modifying an association (by deleting and adding) the metadata associated with a structure will not be deleted, but in case of updating it, the fields of the new associated template will be displayed and when saving the new data will be saved.

Data structures tags

Using this screen you will be able to define the type of tags allowed to be used on your data structures. You will be able to create and remove existing tags.
Structure's tag management screen
In case that you try to delete a tag that is being currently used you will be informed on how many structures are using the giving tag and requested for confirmation. If you remove the tag, all assignments of this tag to structures will be removed.
