Create an Explicit Hierarchy (Master Data Services)


Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview

In Master Data Services, create an explicit hierarchy when you need a ragged hierarchy in which members can exist at any level. Explicit hierarchies contain members from a single entity.

After you create an explicit hierarchy, you can add members to it in the Explorer functional area.


To perform this procedure:

To create an explicit hierarchy

  1. In Master Data Services, click System Administration.

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

  3. On the Entity Maintenance page, from the Model list, select a model.

  4. Select the row for the entity that you want to create an explicit hierarchy for.

  5. Click Edit selected entity.

  6. On the Edit Entity page, in the Explicit hierarchies pane, click Add explicit hierarchy.

  7. On the Add Explicit Hierarchy page, in the Explicit hierarchy name box, type a name for the hierarchy.

  8. Optionally, clear the Mandatory hierarchy check box to create the hierarchy as a non-mandatory hierarchy. For more information about hierarchy types, see Explicit Hierarchies (Master Data Services).

  9. Click Save hierarchy.

  10. On the Edit Entity page, click Save entity.
