Linking Business Glossary Terms to Global Objects

Linking Business Glossary Terms to Global Objects

You can link business terms in the Informatica Business Glossary to TDM global objects such as policies, data domains, masking rules, and generation rules. A business term includes the business definition and examples of how to use the business term. Use this to store information that users can look up from one central location. When you link a business term to a TDM object, you can view the TDM object when you select the business term in the Analyst tool.
View business terms linked to objects from the
Policies
view. You must configure an Analyst Service in the Test Data Manager Service properties to view or link business terms with TDM objects.
When you select an object from the
Policies
view, a list of business terms linked to the object appears in the Linked Business Terms tab. The list displays the term, the name of the glossary that the term belongs to, and a description.
You can add and remove business term links to objects from the
Policies
view. Click the business term link in the Linked Business Terms tab to view the business term in the Analyst tool.
If you delete a TDM object that has a business term linked to it, you delete the link to the business term. If you edit the name of a linked TDM object, the edit reflects in the glossary. If you delete a business term from a glossary, you delete the object link to the business term.
