MetaData Designer

Within the context of a project, click on the Metadata Designer button in the left-hand panel. It will bring up a metadata designer view that can be used to:

  • Design a new Metadata Template
  • Extend an existing Metadata Template
  • Import/Export a Metadata Template

Within the Metadata Designer, you can define a Metadata template as one or more tables. Each table consists of a number of typed columns. Supported column types are:

  • string
  • single-select selection box
  • multi-select selection box

Columns can also have constraints defined on them. On a column, click on cog icon (configure), where you can make the field:

  • searchable: included in the Elastic Search index;
  • required: when entering metadata, this column will make it is mandatory for users to enter a value for this column.
