Data Store Meta Data

Check out the given walk-through on Data Store Meta Data creation.

The Data Store Metadata is a database created to store metadata. It is a structure/index in which the actual data can be stored/written using an application such as ETL.

  • Navigate to the Data Center Homepage.

  • Click the New menu.

  • Select the Data Store Metadata option from the New context menu.

  • A new page asking for the Meta Store details opens.

  • Enter a Data Store Name.

  • Choose a Collection Name from the drop-down list (optional).

  • Click the Next option.

  • Define the data type (The user needs to insert the field name manually if the Collection Name is not chosen. Else, the names of the fields get selected from the chosen Collection).

  • The users can define the data for the Dimensions, Measures, and Time categories. The user can interchange the data categories of dimension, measure, and time value by using the below-given options:

  • Click the Next option.

  • The Hierarchy Definition tab opens.

  • Click the Add icon provided in the Hierarchy Definition window.

  • A new Drill Def box gets added to the page.

  • Drag and drop the dimensions or time options to define a hierarchy.

    • The time dimension creates a hierarchical sequence from the higher to lower time values by default. E.g., year->month->date by pulling it once in the Drill Def boxes.

    • Dimensions have to be manually pulled to create a hierarchy.

  • Click the Next option.

  • The Data Restrictions tab opens. The Data Restriction tab allows the user/user group to access data as per the selected User Property options.

  • Select a dimension from the drop-down menu to apply filter values to the data store.

  • Enter a User Property to create a filter parameter based on the user.

  • Click the Finish option.

  • A notification message appears to confirm the configuration of the new Meta Data.

  • The newly created Meta Data gets added to the list displayed on the left pane of the page.

Please Note: The user can configure the option whether to choose the Mongodb or Elastic Search using the Datastore Settings configuration section under the Admin module.
