Object Page

Each object in TDC has a dynamically constructed object page. All the information about that object is available from the object page.

Information note

Identifying Information such as sample data and profiling information may be hidden .

In the top left, you will see the Physical name, Business name, object type and context or parent structure of where this element is in the Model it is contained in.

Social curation

In the top right you may curate this object. You have the option to Certify , Endorse and/or providing a Warning for this object.

More details on social curation are available.

Tabs

Several different tabs run across the top. Click on any of these tabs to see details about the object. The specific tabs will vary depending upon the type of object you are looking at.

Information note

The numbers next to the tab headings, e.g., Columns - Attributes 7 , indicate how many items are under that tab. These a prompts encouraging users to explore those particular tabs. However, some tabs, like the Related Reports tab , require expensive processing (a full lineage trace) to produce any kind of summary information, and thus do not show these prompts (numbers or other indicators). You must click on them to invoke the processing and then you will be presented the results.

Information note

For other tabs, like Data Flow or Semantic Flow , we see arrow indicators showing what lineage reports are available.

Information note

The presentation of elements in the object tabs, e.g. Tables in a schema, may be customized and published using the default worksheet capabilities .

Overview tab

  • Business Name which may be edited in the upper left or in the Attributes and also may be determined by the Business Name in a related glossary term, semantically linked object or through data flow inference. Also see data cataloging.

Steps

The object page for a given object may be accessed by search , metadata category browsing or browsing the architecture diagram . In addition, anywhere a hyperlink with the name of that element appears (e.g., in a diagram, lineage trace, or other list or display) that link will take you to the object page. Going to the object page is the default action for any hyperlinked object and is the default action for the Open icon and context (right-click) menu.
