Creating a Metadata Transfer Profile
OneData uses profiles to perform any action with metadata, such as importing, creating, or transferring data to another repository. Profiles define all the information about the action that OneData needs.
Familiarize yourself with metadata constraints and restrictions before beginning this procedure. For more information about rules and constraints with transferring metadata, see Transferring and Importing Metadata.
Note: Transfer Metadata does not support metadata localization tables. Therefore, manually transfer metadata tables OD_MD_LOCALE and OD_MD_MDATA_LCLZTN from the source to the destination system.
* To create a metadata profile
1. On the Menu toolbar, click Administer > Metadata > Transfer Metadata or click Administer > Metadata > Import Metadata, according to which type of profile you want to create.
