Using the Glossary Export/Import CSV format

The CSV format for import and export of glossaries has changed to the common format for any custom or imported model with this release of the product. However, you can import the glossary_export.csv and the glossary_relationships_export. generated by earlier versions of the product using the new format MM 11.0 Import from CSV utility.

Information note

Always import the glossary_export.csv file before you import the glossary_relationships_export.csv.

The attributes on the legacy glossary terms will be converted to the attributes or roles of the new business glossary terms. For example, the Stewards attribute is converted to the Steward object role. The Abbreviation and Alternative Abbreviation attributes are converted to the Has Acronym roles. Acronyms are automatically created under an Abbreviations term under the glossary. The Status and State attributes are converted to the Workflow State and/or Workflow Deprecation Requested attributes if the glossary is under workflow. The Definition attribute is converted to the Description attribute. The Documentation attribute is converted to the Long Description attribute.

Information note

You must have at least the Metadata Import / Export capability object role assignment on the term (and children) you are interested in.
