    Hi Guddu,

    Though I have not actually worked on Matrix but will share how much I know and the stuff i had collected.

    Please refer to the link below that contains the fair information about Matrix and also how to configure it.Refer from page no. 12.One more suggestion from my side is:Use SAP's standard shipped Article repository because it is configured for the Matrix application so you have to do few things only. -> Installation -> MDM 5.5 SP06 IT Scenario Configuration Guide

    Once your repository is Matrix enabled (by right clicking on the repository and enabling the Matrix support property), Add Master option will be enabled in the Data manager.By which you can actually create Master and variants relationship but this functionality will be visible only through iViews that u will deploy on your portal (stated in the document mentioned above).

    Once you have created Master and its variants and they are sharing some common fields(whose Matrix type have been selected as Master in the Console) then if you change the Master field of the master record, it will be reflected in the corresponding variants also.

    Note: If you add the record using Add Master option then that record cannot be deleted unless you have configured all the necessary settings.So it would be better if you try this on some dummy repository.
