Adding or Modifying a Node Type for a User Defined Dimension

When you configure a node type in a Universal application, you specify settings such as whether the node type has a uniqueness qualifier. You can also add existing properties and create custom properties.
To add or modify a node type for a user-defined dimension, you must be on the Node Types for Dimension page. The following list describes the ways to access this page:
