Metadata Extensions

Metadata Extensions

You can extend the metadata stored in the repository by associating information with individual repository objects. For example, you may want to store your name with the worklets you create. If you create a session, you can store your telephone extension with that session. You associate information with repository objects using metadata extensions. You can create and promote metadata extensions on the Metadata Extensions tab.
The following table describes the configuration options for the Metadata Extensions tab:
Metadata Extensions Tab Options
Description
Extension Name
Name of the metadata extension. Metadata extension names must be unique for each type of object in a domain. Metadata extension names cannot contain any special characters except underscores and cannot begin with numbers.
Datatype
Datatype: numeric (integer), string, boolean, or XML.
Value
For a numeric metadata extension, the value must be an integer.
For a boolean metadata extension, choose true or false.
For a string or XML metadata extension, click the Edit button on the right side of the Value field to enter a value of more than one line. The Workflow Manager does not validate XML syntax.
Precision
Maximum length for string or XML metadata extensions.
Reusable
Makes the metadata extension reusable or non-reusable. Check to apply the metadata extension to all objects of this type (reusable). Clear to make the metadata extension apply to this object only (non-reusable).
If you make a metadata extension reusable, you cannot change it back to non-reusable. The Workflow Manager makes the extension reusable as soon as you confirm the action.
UnOverride
This column appears only if the value of one of the metadata extensions was changed. To restore the default value, click Revert.
