Metadata Browser

The Metadata Browser is a set of web pages which lets you view an Organization’s Entities, Attributes and Relationships.
You can see a quick overview of the metadata for your organization by using the metadata browser. This live view of the metadata, which shows only published information, is found here:


You can use this to view the definition for all entities and attributes in your organization, both system and custom.
If you click an icon in the Definition column, you will see a view of all the attributes in the selected entity. At the top of this view you can view the ownership type of the entity, its type code, whether it is customizable, and if it is valid for Advanced Find.
For each attribute you can view its type, whether it is valid for create, update, and retrieve operations, and so on.
