Create a Leaf Member (Master Data Services)


Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview

In Master Data Services, create a leaf member when you want to add master data to your system and are not using staging tables or the Master Data Services Add-in for Excel to import data.


To perform this procedure:

  • You must have permission to access the Explorer functional area.

  • You must have a minimum of Create or Update permission to the leaf model object for the entity you are adding a member to. The Create permission enables you to create a member and edit only the Code attribute. The Update permission enables you to update other attributes.

    For more information, see Security (Master Data Services).

To create a leaf member

  1. On the Master Data Services home page, from the Model list, select a model.

  2. If you are a user, select an open version from the Version list. If you are an administrator, select a version with open or locked status from the Version list.

  3. Click Explorer.

  4. From the menu bar, point to Entities and click the name of the entity you want to add a member to.

  5. Click Add member.

  6. In the Details pane, complete the fields.

  7. Optional. In the Annotations box, type a comment about why the member was added. All users who have access to the member can view the annotation.

  8. Click OK.
