You can use fields to determine how information is displayed in the glossary, for example as descriptions, predefined selections, images or formatted texts. x
You use templates to determine how the profiles in the glossary are to be structured. To do this, you can place fields in the templates and organize them into categories. Different templates can be created for different purposes, for example, one template for key figures and another for reports. x
The individual key figures, reports, applications, etc. can be described by using entries in the glossary. They are each based on a template that determines which fields are available for creating the entry. Visitors in the glossaries then see the created entries when they search for information.
Workflow for Including SAP BW Metadata
Synchronizing SAP Objects
To be able to use the SAP information in the required entries, the existing SAP objects must first be synchronized. x
Placing SAP Fields in Templates
In the templates, you define which SAP information is to be displayed. To do this, you use special fields in the templates that are delivered with the system. x
Select SAP Object for Glossary Entry
For example, if the profile describes a key figure, you can now read and display information from SAP BW for this key figure. x
Synchronizing Data for SAP Objects regularly
If changes are made to the linked SAP objects, these changes are also taken into account in the Enterprise Glossary via a scheduled, regular synchronization.
