Use

The Repository Manager for BW documents allows you to integrate documents created in the BW system into Knowledge Management of the portal. The documents are divided into three document classes : Metadata , Master Data and InfoProvider Data . The Metadata document class contains manually created documents using metadata. These documents are not the automatically generated documents from the Metadata Repository. The Master Data document class contains documents for characteristic values, such as images for personnel numbers, descriptions, and technical specifications for materials. The InfoProvider Data document class contains documents for a combination of characteristic values, such as comments on key figures.

You can use the Data Warehousing Workbench to create documents or you can create them in BEx Web applications. For more information about displaying, creating, and changing documents in Web applications, see Using Documents in Web Applications .
