Manage business terms

You manage business terms by editing term properties and status. You must have the Admin role for the Watson Knowledge Catalog service.

You must know the term’s status to find the term.

The status of a term determines whether you can edit the term, whether the term is in use, and what status you can change it to.

Status Can edit? In use? Can publish? Can archive? Can delete?
Draft yes no yes no yes
Published yes yes no yes no
Archived no no no no yes

To edit, publish, archive, or delete a term, click the action menu next to the term name and then choose the appropriate action.

You can edit these properties of draft and published terms, click the edit (edit icon) icon next to the property you want to edit:

  • Name
