In the Integration perspective of the studio, the Metadata folder stores reusable information on files, databases, and/or systems that you need to create your Jobs.
This chapter provides procedures of using relevant wizards to create and manage various metadata items that can be used in your Big Data Job designs.
For other types of metadata wizards, see Managing Metadata for data integration.
Before starting any metadata management processes, you need to be familiar with the Graphical User Interface (GUI) of your studio. For more information, see the appendix describing GUI elements.
