Table Views

Many External Databases are highly normalized, meaning their data is spread across many tables. Before CSM can share data in a normalized External Database, it helps to create one or more database Views to collect, combine, and filter the information that is shared (importing/linking).

Tip: To make mapping fields easier, first compare the fields in the External Database View with the fields in the CSM Business Objects, then set the fields in the View to match the names.

Note: For more information about creating and testing Views of the External Database, see your Database Administrator (DBA).
