Meta Introduction (beta)

What is Meta?

Meta empowers the CALUMO users in each organization. Users can see detailed meta information about assets in CALUMO that is tailored to the organization. Meta provides contextual, easy access information in CALUMO and it can promote reuse of existing assets by providing asset-specific information.

How do you use Meta?

An information icon will appear next to a CALUMO asset if a business definition exists against that CALUMO asset. Upon hover, a box with the definition will appear for the user to read. Once the user hovers away from the icon the definition will close.

Users with administrator or meta admin access will be able to create/edit meta information.

Assets with Meta capability

Meta information can be written against the following CALUMO assets

  • View Member tree for measures, dimensions, hierarchies, subsets and folders
  • CALUMO Data Drawer ()
  • CALUMO Library Drawer (folder, report)
  • CMETA formula items in the report

How it can be used?

Meta is used by administrators to give context to the assets inside CALUMO. It is a tool for the CALUMO administrator to insert business definition to assets so a user can understand the asset without repetitively asking the administrator for context. For further details on how to turn on and edit Meta, follow to this page Meta Administration.
