In the Target Application option, you add a new target application for the class of dimension or dimension type. This application is used as the target application for loading metadata. When you add a dimension, Data Management creates six-dimensions applications automatically: Account, Entity, Custom, Scenario, Version, and Smartlist.
To add a dimension as a target application:
Select the Setup tab, and then under Register, select Target Application.
In Target Application, in the summary grid, click Add, and then select Dimension.
- From Select Application, and then from the Application Type drop-down, select the target application type.
To specify a prefix name to use with each target application, in Prefix, specify a unique name.
Data Management creates the dimension application name using this format: "Application Name -" + Dimension Type.
You can add dimensions multiple times. Data Management checks if a dimension application exists. If a dimension exists, it is skipped, and if not, it is created. This enables you to delete applications as needed and recreate it.
Note:The Refresh Metadata and Refresh Members options are not available when adding dimensions.
