Create new Semantic Type by Copying Existing Semantic Type

You can use an existing semantic type as a template to create a new semantic type in the business glossary.

  1. On the Metadata Insights menu bar, click Define Glossary > Semantic Type.
  2. From the list of semantic types displayed on the page, select the semantic type you want to use as template and click the Copy Semantic Type icon .
    In case the list of semantic types is long, you can filter those using:
    • The associated tags: Tags represent the category to which the semantic type belongs. You can associate multiple tags to a semantic type. To filter using tags, click the Tags drop-down on the right side above the semantic type list, and select the required tag.
    • Name or description of the semantic type: To filter using the name of the semantic type or its description, write it in the type-ahead text box beside the Tags drop-down.
    The Copy Semantic Type page is displayed.
  3. Modify and update details, as required, and click Save.
    The entity is saved and displayed in the Semantic Type tab of the Define Glossary page.
