Set up ZSources

ZSources are Source systems to which user security is granted. Users with security to a ZSource are permitted to create data for the Source system. When Source data (legacy) is moved from Source tables to Target tables, the following occurs:

  • A ZSource field is added to the Target table.
  • The field is populated with a value indicating which Source system the row came from, for example, data from JDEdwards may contain “JDE.”
  • Data in the Target table indicates its origin.

For a user to view a ZSource:

  • The ZSource must be added to Construct

  • The user must be added to the specific ZSource
