Name of the metadata extension. Metadata extension names must be unique for each type of object in a domain.
Metadata extension names cannot contain special characters except underscores and cannot begin with numbers.
Select numeric (integer), string, or boolean.
Maximum length for string metadata extensions.
For a numeric metadata extension, the value must be an integer between -2,147,483,647 and 2,147,483,647.
For a boolean metadata extension, choose true or false.
For a string metadata extension, click the Open button in the Value field to enter a value of more than one line, up to 2,147,483,647 bytes.
Makes the metadata extension reusable or non-reusable. Select 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 create a reusable metadata extension for a transformation, the metadata extension applies to all transformations of that type (for example, all Aggregator transformations or all Router transformations), and not to all transformations.
If you make a metadata extension reusable, you cannot change it back to non-reusable. The Designer makes the extension reusable as soon as you confirm the action.
Restores the default value of the metadata extension when you click Revert. This column appears only if the value of one of the metadata extensions was changed.
