Mapping Data Fields to Custom Metadata Fields

You can start metadata under a document profile.

To map custom metadata:

  1. In the data model editor task pane, click Custom Metadata.
  2. Oracle WebCenter Content Server stores metadata under a document profile. A document profile is further nested into rules. To retrieve the metadata fields for mapping, you first select the WebCenter server, then the Content Profile, then the Rules set.

    On the Custom Metadata header region, select the Rules as follows:

    • Server — Select the Web content server where the content profile is defined.

    • Content Profile — Select the content profile that includes the rules that define custom metadata fields.

    • Rules — Select the Rules set that specifies the metadata fields.

      If you do not select a Rules set, then BI Publisher loads the metadata for all Rules under the Content Profile.

  3. Click Load Metadata. The lower pane displays the metadata fields defined in the Rules you selected.
  4. For each metadata field, map a data field from your data sets by selecting it from the Data Mapping list. The Data Mapping list displays all the data fields from your data sets.

    If a metadata field is required a Y is displayed in the Required column.

  5. When you are done with mapping the metadata fields, click Save.
