Adding metadata to a resource manually

The easiest way to add metadata to a resource is to enter it in manually.

Note  If you want to use a template, import metadata, or copy metadata from another resource, do so before manually entering data as any data you enter is erased when you apply existing metadata from another source.

Enter metadata

  1. On the Edit Metadata page for the module or topic you want to modify, select a metadata view from the Select a View drop-down list, then click Select.
  2. Select an Edit Mode from the drop-down list, then click Select.
  3. Enter the metadata in the Value column fields.
  4. If the Value column does not contain a data entry field, click the Edit icon beside the field name to edit the item. If the item does not have an Edit icon or a data entry field, you cannot edit the item.
  5. Click Save.
