Using wizards to create metadata

To get to the creation wizards, go to “create metadata” on your dashboard side panel, or the creation tool in the header bar and select “see all…”

Data element and data element concept wizards

Wizards help make metadata creation and reuse of metadata items easier. Using these wizards, you will be stepped through creating either a Data Element, and within the wizard you will create an object class, property, and value domain. Or, you can select to create a Data Element Concept, where you will create an object class and a property.

Single item creation wizards

These wizards are useful if you know you want to create just one item

A basic search screen

Because reuse is important, each wizard will search for the name of your item and give you results if there are any matching or similar to your item. If you would like to create a new item, select the box “I’ve reviewed these items, and none of them meet my needs” and you will be able to save your new item.


You must tick the box that you’ve reviewed the items to move forward with the creation process


Once you are done, select “save” and your item will be created
