How to manage the metadata management in universe?
Our project requirment is to maintain the Business Defination of Object(not the technical Information which automatically comes when connection is defined while designing), As of Now we have suggested to the client that we will manually include the Defination of each field/objects or class in the Description field of properties of Object while designing the universe in designer.
But this solution seems to be very time consuming and difficult to maintain (Having too many objects in Universe which is designed on SAP BW Query will consume lot of time for Developer and also to maintainance will also be a problem.)
Can any one suggest the way to incorporate the Business Defination of Objects in Universe?
We have a product called Metadata Manager that keeps information of universes along the lifecycle of BI system.
By the way, when you genererate a universe on top of SAP BW data source, this universe contains hidden attributes per class / object / measure / filter.
Those attributes contain:
<li>Last update date
</ul>Those attributes are accessible (read/write) through Universe Designer SDK.
