Perform this task in the Catalog Sandbox organization.

  1. In the Catalog Sandbox organization, go the Glossary tab of the Organization profile page and click the New button.

  2. In the Add new resource window, you will notice the new type - Metric. Type a name for the terms and set the type as Metric.

  3. In the Edit resource window, set the following:

    1. Summary: Provide a summary.

    2. Data Steward: Set the data steward for the term you are adding.


      Note that any resource type that is a subtype of another resource inherits all the metadata fields from the parent resource. In our example, the Data Steward field is inherited by Metric from Business terms as Metrics is a sub type of business terms.
