How to create alternative name types

Alternative name types can be applied to all metadata items managed within the Stewardship Organisation you create the alternative name type in.

How to create a new alternative name type

1. Go to the Stewardship Organisation Homepage you want to create an alternative name type in.

  • Title: required field, e.g. Short name, Technical name

  • Definition: optional field, allows user to provide a description of the alternative name type

  • Max length: required field, value range from 1-256, restricts user to create an alternative name of length greater than the max length

  • Visibility: required field. This sets which group in the registry can see this alternative name type. Available options are:Public, Authenticated, Stewardship Organisation and Workgroup

4. Once the alternative name is saved you will be able to view, edit and delete the alternative name type.
