How to record a controlled vocabulary
This user guide steps users through building a controlled vocabulary in the Aristotle Metadata Registry.
I have a series of terms used to classify data that I want to record in my metadata registry, so I can inform people of what data I have and what it contains. My controlled vocabulary uses codes and categories to classify data. These codes should be able to be used for validating data, so I need to be able to access codes from an API. I need to be able to map between different codes when they record the same meaning. If the codes in my vocabulary have changed over time, I need to record when different codes were valid for use in data. If my vocabulary is endorsed, I want to record who and when this controlled vocabulary was approved for use.
