Views in MDM


Dear MDM Experts,


how can I define views for user groups in MDM? As I saw usage of masks are not too good for this, because when new items come into the repository, the Catalog Manager should everytime renew the masks. Am I right?

Can I define dinamic rules for views? For example I add a new field: VIEW IDs. If this VIEW ID field contains the 'View01' string the item is in the view V01, etc, if 'View02' the item is in the view V02. I would like to load this field from an Excel file, is it possible?

Is there any simplier solution?


Maybe my problem can be solved by using Constraints Records (Roles/Tables and Fields).

I tried this:

In MDM Console

1. I copied the set of table Suppliers and create a table VIEWS with a field VIEW ID (as Supplier Name)

2. add a new field to table Catalog Items: VIEW (like Supplier - Lookup, flat)

In Data Manager

3. add some entries to table VIEWS (view01; view02; view03)

4. by some Catalog Items select view01 in the field VIEW

In MDM Console

5. the User1 has only one role: Catalog User

6. on the tab Tables and Fields of role 'Catalog User' select view01 for Constraint Record of VIEWS

After loading repository I looked the catalog on web by the User2. I saw all of the items, the filter with view01 didn't worked.

(When I set contraint one of Suppliers, the filter worked. Why is it?)
