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
On the Master Data Services home page, from the Model list, select a model.
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.
From the menu bar, point to Entities and click the name of the entity you want to add a member to.
Click Add member.
In the Details pane, complete the fields.
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.
