Mapping in Taxonomy


My expected Hierarchy structure in Taxonomy is as below:

        |    |___E
        |    |___F
        |    |___E
        |    |___F

How do we create the tree such that, when node B (Below root node) is modified for its Hiearachy or change in Attributes, the other B nodes in hierarchy are automatically updated?

    A possible solution to look into is the use of an alias. An alias allows you to create a copy of node from the tree, while still maintaining the link to the original. It is basically used so that you can show a single node in two differenct places.

    See page 341 of the MDM 5.5 SP05 Data Manager Reference Guide for more instruction.

    To create an alias:

    1. In the hierarchy tree, select the leaf node for which you want to create

    an alias.

    2. Right-click on the node and choose Create Alias from the context

    menu, or choose Tree > Create Alias from the main menu.

    3. MDM adds a new node named “node [Alias]” as a sibling of and just

    after the original node.

    4. Press F2 to edit the name of the alias.

    5. MDM highlights the name of the alias for editing.

    6. Type the name you want for the alias and press Enter.

    7. Drag-and-drop the alias to move it to the target location in the tree.
