Importing Glossary Entities

The Import Glossary Entities pop-up is displayed as soon as you click the Define Glossary tab for the first time.

The page gives you a list of entities shipped as template to you. You can import these based on the domain you function in, and can modify, update these as required.

In case this is not the first time you have accessed the Business Glossary tab, access the Import Glossary Entities pop-up using these steps:

  1. On the Metadata Insights main menu, click Define Glossary.
    The Glossary Entity tab opens by default.
  2. Click the Import Entities icon.
    The Import Glossary Entities pop-up is displayed. The pop-up displays domain names (tags) on the left side and a list of entities on the right.
  3. Select the required domain based on the area you operate. You can also use the type-ahead filter text box to find the relevant domain.
    The list of entities displayed on the right side corresponds to the selected domain.
  4. Click the Import button.
    Note: In case you already have entities defined, you receive a warning saying the task may overwrite the exiting entities. You can choose to continue or import selectively the non-existing entities.
    The entities are imported and displayed in the Glossary Entity tab with the selected filter displayed as Tags for the entities.
