Finding and viewing business terms

To find and view business terms, choose Catalog > Business Glossary. All catalog members can view terms.

Terms are sorted onto separate pages by status:

  • Published. Default page. Lists terms that are in use.
  • Draft. Lists terms that are not yet in use.
  • Archived. Lists terms that are no longer in use.

Within a status, you can find terms with these methods:

  • Sort by or search for the term name.
  • Search for tags associated with terms.
  • Sort by the term modification dates.
