Before business users are able to extract and query master data in Talend MDM Web User Interface, you need to create one or more Views in Talend Studio. These Views specify which data records within an entity a business user is allowed to search and view, and may also set conditions that filter which content can be delivered as the result of a search.

To create a View, do the following:

  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, right-click View and select New from the contextual menu.

  2. In the [New View] dialog box that opens, select Web filter view.

  3. Click the [...] button to specify the entity on which you want to create a view.

  4. In the dialog box that opens, select the Product data model in the drop-down box, click Product to set the appropriate XPath, and then click Add to close the dialog box.

  5. The name of your View is set automatically as Browse_items_Product. Click OK.

Your View now exists in the MDM Repository tree view, but it has not yet been fully defined. You still need to specify exactly which elements can be viewed and searched.

To define the details of your View, do the following:

  1. In the Browse_items_Product View which opens in the workspace, click the[...] button next to Description to define a description for your View in one or more languages (for example, Product since it is a View on all the products), and then click OK to close the dialog box when you have done so.

  2. Under Viewable Business Elements, click the Add multiple button to add multiple elements at the same time.

  3. In the dialog box that opens, expand Product and anonymous type, and then press Ctrl and hold it down while you select each of the elements you want to make viewable: Id, Name, Price. Click Add to add each of these elements.

  4. Under Searchable Business Elements, click the Add multiple button to add multiple elements at the same time.

  5. In the dialog box that opens, expand Product and anonymous type, and then press Ctrl and hold it down while you select each of the elements you want to make searchable: Id, Name, Price. Click Add to add each of these elements.

  6. Save your changes and then, in the MDM Repository tree view, expand the View node, right-click the Product View, and then select one of the deployment options to deploy your changes to the MDM Server.

    You have now created the overall structure for your simple MDM project.
