Update an existing database dictionary record

Applies to User Roles:

System Administrator

This procedure assumes the Service Manager system has table create-alter-drop-rights to the RDBMS system. If Service Manager does not have table create-alter-drop-rights, your database dictionary record changes remain inactive and mapped to null tables until you activate them. If your system does not have table create-alter-drop-rights to the RDBMS, we recommend that you enable the option to create DDL to provide to your RDBMS administrator. You can then activate the database dictionary record changes after your RDBMS administrator has created the tables and columns specified in the DDL.

To update an existing database dictionary record:

  1. Log in to the Service Manager system with a system administrator account.
  2. Click System Definition > Tables.
  3. Double-click the table name you want to edit.

    Note: Each table name is actually a database dictionary record.

  4. From the Table tab you can delete, rename, or copy the database dictionary record as well as add triggers.
  5. From the Fields and Keys tab you can add, delete, or update fields and keys.
  6. Make the changes you want to make,, and then click Save to update the database dictionary record.
