Editing Base Object Properties

Editing Base Object Properties

You can edit the properties of an existing base object. After you edit base object properties, validate the Operational Reference Store.
If you do not validate the Operational Reference Store, and an application uses business entity services to retrieve data, the service call might fail with errors.
  1. Start the Schema Manager.
  2. Acquire a write lock.
  3. In the schema tree, select the base object that you want to modify.
    The Schema Manager displays the Basic tab of the Base Object Properties page.
  4. Edit basic base object properties using the following instructions:
    • Click the
      button and specify the new value in the Display Name field.
    • Click the
      button and specify the new value in the Description field.
    • Select the

        to disable timeline for the base object
      • Dynamic Timeline
        to enable timeline for the base object
    • Select the
      Allow non-contiguous effective periods
      check box to allow non-contiguous effective periods for base object records, including entities and relationship. This property can be set only for timeline-enabled base objects.
  5. To modify other base object properties, click the
  6. Specify the advanced properties for this base object.
  7. In the left pane, click Match/Merge Setup beneath the base object’s name.
  8. Specify the match / merge object properties. At a minimum, consider configuring the following properties:
    • maximum number of matches for manual consolidation
    • number of rows per match job batch cycle
    To edit a property, click the
    button and enter a new value.
  9. Click the
    button to save your changes.
When you make changes to the schema, metadata validation generates a warning and the MDM Hub adds an entry to the C_REPOS_MET_VALID_RESULT table.
