Talend Dictionary Service stores the semantic categories used in various Talend products including Talend Data Stewardship. You can enrich these semantic types with your personal categories, and all the changes you make are instantly available in Talend Data Stewardship. However, the availability of Talend Dictionary Service depends on the license you have.
Talend Data Stewardship has data model awareness which makes possible the syntactic and semantic validation of data. You can define the attributes in the data model and select their types out of the predefined standard or semantic types stored on Talend Dictionary Service.
When campaign owners define the structure of the data to be managed in a campaign, they can select from a predefined list the semantic type for each attribute. Then when they load data into Talend Data Stewardship, an internal validation of the schema type is performed and data is displayed as valid or invalid accordingly.
For example, the list of entries included by default in
Talend Data Stewardship under countries does not
Republic of Angola,
United States of America
UK. As a result, such entries are considered invalid country names
when loaded to Talend Data Stewardship.

You can do all these management options either through a user interface integrated in Talend Data Stewardship or through the command line interface.
