How to Link data items to an Instance

Once you create a Collection, you create instances to fill out the collection.

Each instance is then linked to the relevant data items. You can then link those instances to Data Items manually or via rules.

How to manually link a data item to an instance

  1. Hover over the collection section and click on the grey bar that appears.

  2. Select the collection instance you would like to link to the data ite.

If you cannot find the data item, ask your Data Governance Manager or Data Manager to ensure the collection settings and instance has been created correctly to allow your data item type to be linked.
