Configure Information Sources

This section describes configuration related to Information Sources.

The Information Sources page enables the possibility to view, modify or even add new metadata for Information Sources. The functionality also supplies different operations that can simplify the configuration.

Note: When you add or modify metadata in the Information Sources feature it means that the installed metadata will be affected. The metadata is for BI components defined in INS files and it is important to make sure that manual changes are also corrected in the corresponding INS files and saved in the current code version system.

Note: If existing metadata is modified via this feature, please make sure that the new information is correct. Validations will be made during the save operation. Always check if the made changes has caused any errors or warnings. Please refer to the Information Source Log.

Since an Information Source is built by combining a Fact with one or more dimensions, the configuration documentation is split into one section each.
