Configuring additional schema-level settings

The final step in the project creation process involves configuring additional schema-level settings to add more analytical depth to your schema objects and optimize the project as a whole. These settings include:

Fact definitions: The Fact Editor allows you to create, edit, and configure facts one at a time. This is covered in Creating and modifying simple and advanced facts.

Architect also allows you to create, edit, and configure any and all facts for your project. This is covered in Creating and modifying facts.

Attribute definitions: The Attribute Editor allows you to create and edit attributes, attribute relationships, attribute forms, and attribute form expressions for attributes one at a time. This is covered in Adding and modifying attributes.

Architect also allows you to create and edit any and all attributes, attribute relationships, attribute forms, and attribute form expressions for your project. This is covered in Creating and modifying attributes and Defining attribute relationships.

User hierarchies: The Hierarchy Editor allows you to create user hierarchies, which facilitate access to attribute and element browsing and drilling. This is covered in Creating Hierarchies to Organize and Browse Attributes.

Architect also allows you to create any and all user hierarchies for your project. This is covered in Creating and modifying user hierarchies.

Advanced configurations: These objects include transformations, aggregate tables, and partitioning and partition mappings:
The Transformation Editor allows you to create transformations, which are schema objects used for time-series analysis. Transformations are covered in Creating Transformations to Define Time-Based and Other Comparisons.
The tools used to create aggregate tables and partitions are the Warehouse Catalog, the Metadata Partition Mapping Editor, and the Warehouse Partition Mapping Editor. This information is covered in Optimizing and Maintaining Your Project.
