Administration views provide general documentation on the internal system capabilities of PMF. Those who maintain the PMF system can run them to query and display all components in the data mart. Administration views will help you when you perform compliance analysis of the PMF system or diagnostic functions against the data mart.
Sorting options allow you to select and arrange the content as desired. You can also save the parameters for a request for future use.
To run an administration view:
The Reset button returns all options to their default value.
The following sample form shows the default content and output options for the Dimension Data view.
In this section:
This topic lists each administration view and describes its content.
