Repository browsing

In the repository view, the user can view all objects in the repository that have been shared with him. The whole repository is organized in the form of a folder tree and objects embedded in them.

Individual folders and subfolders in the repository view can be expanded and collapsed. The icons displayed next to the names of individual objects indicate their type.

Folder, an item that organizes the object tree, can contain other objects, including other folders.

Dictionary, an element associated with a reference data table, enabling them to be viewed and edited, sometimes also in the form of a hierarchical parent-child system

Portlet, a view of an external web page embedded in the Metastudio DRM application, sometimes launched with parameters.

Desktop, a layout of related or independent dictionaries and portlets displayed in one workspace.

Connection, definition of a connection to a database in which data dictionaries are stored.
