To create a generic schema from scratch, proceed as follows:
Right-click Generic schemas under the Metadata node in the Repository tree view, and select Create generic schema.
In the schema creation wizard that appears, fill in the generic schema properties such as schema Name and Description. The Status field is a customized field. For more information about how to define the field, see Status settings.
Click Next to continue.
Give a name to the schema or use the default one (metadata) and add a comment if needed. Customize the schema structure in the Schema panel according to your needs.
The tool bar allows you to add, remove or move columns in your schema. You can also export the current schema as an XML file, or import a schema from an XML file, which must be an export of schema from the Studio, to replace the current schema.
Click Finish to complete the generic schema creation. The created schema is displayed under the relevant Generic schemas node.
