Custom Attributes for Information Sources

This page deals with custom attributes for Information Sources, i.e. how to add customized attributes to a Fact or a Dimension through configuration using end-user tools.

This functionality to some extent removes the need for doing custom specific customizations of Facts and Dimensions in the traditional way, i.e. by creating new tables, new table columns, new views, modifying the metadata definitions etc. The described type of customization is rather time consuming and to reduce the time and effort of doing smaller customization, a tool based solution is provided in IFS Cloud.

Use the provided links to get a better overview of the supplied functionality, to get a suggested work flow presented, to learn about source relations for Facts and Dimensions and to learn how to add and manage custom attributes.
