Edit Model (Master Data Services)


Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview

In Master Data Services, you can change the name and description of a model and indicate how many days you want to retain transaction logs.

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


To perform this procedure:

To change a model

  1. In Master Data Services, click System Administration.

  2. On the Model View page, from the menu bar, point to Manage and click Models.

  3. On the Manage Models page, from the grid, select the row for the model with the name or description you want to change.

  4. Click Edit.

  5. In the Name box, type the updated name of the model.

  6. In the Description field, type the updated description of the model.

  7. In the Log Retention Days field, select one of the options for retaining log data. The default value is System Setting, which indicates that the value is inherited from system settings in the Master Data Services Configuration Manager. For more information, see System Settings (Master Data Services).

    To override the system setting and not remove transaction log data, select NO. To retain only today’s log data and truncate log data for all previous days, select YES and set the Days field to 0. To retain log data for a specified number of days, select YES and set the Days field to the number of days.

  8. Click Save model.

The Status column in the grid shows the status of the operation on the model. When you click the Save model button, the Updating image is displayed, which indicates that the model is updating. If there are errors when creating or editing a model, the Error image is displayed. Otherwise, the status is OK and the OK image is displayed.
