Master data information are organized in a three-layer structure. This video shows you how to navigate from items through the hierarchy of master data.

To display this, I will go from a specific item into my master data information, specification for instance. This is the specification that is added for this specific item, so this is the lowest level of the three-layer structure. For instance, here, I can see this specific item is a bike type, city bike, it’s a male, in the area of gender, et cetera.
So, this is the lowest area. The middle layer will be the drop-down list on my information value, so, my male selection refers to the information code, gender, and if I go into my information value I can select from a drop down list defined. So, this is the middle layer, I can select this differently on all items. The top level is my information code and adding a new information code would relate to adding a new field on the items or customers and vendors, et cetera, so this is the deepest layer, or the top layer of information.
Here I can see my gender, and here I would also be able to navigate into the middle layer and see my information value defined for this gender. Like on all the other different types and the list I see here will be filled out on items and blanks, so I can select if an information code, which is the highest level, refers to only items or to many entities, for instance customers and vendors, et cetera.
If I clear this filter, I would see that some of the information relate to customers, meaning, if I look up from my customer, I could see the loyalty program and all the Information codes with a type that is blank. Likewise, it also has subtype specification or subtype identification. If I clear this filter, I can see that some of the information code relates to text and files, et cetera. So this is the top layer of my three level structure.
