Hierarchy Types

This page describes how to assign hierarchy types.

Hierarchy Type Overview

Most data models include data types for each hierarchy, but some data models do not. When data types are missing, you can use the Data Discovery tool to assign them.

  • If the hierarchy is a flat attribute, the type can be set for the hierarchy itself
  • If the hierarchy is a user hierarchy, the type should be set for each level in the tree.

Assign Geospatial Types

To assign Geospatial types:

  1. Right click on a hierarchy or level.
  2. Choose "Hierarchy Type" (or "Level Type").
  3. Choose "Geospatial".

NOTE: If new GIS layers are uploaded, they are added to the list for the mapping of the hierarchy to the new layer.

Assign Date Types

To assign date types:

  1. Right click on a hierarchy or level.
  2. Choose "Hierarchy Type" (or "Level Type").
  3. Choose "Dates".

 

Hierarchy Types Using Admin Metadata

Hierarchy and level types can also be set by administrators through the metadata library interface found in the admin console.
