UNX Universe documentation

Creating documentation is not one of my favorite tasks. Luckily there is a way to generate documentation on UNX universes from IDT. When you select a data foundation or a business layer you can right click to goto the context menu and select save as.

When you do that you will get a nice screen where you can select which Metadata Elements to print. For the business layer these are the elements:

And for the data foundation:

Here an example of the PDF that is created.

Of course you can also print the business layer and use a PDF driver. The output looks a little bit nicer, but the selection of the metadata elements is gone.



  1. Is there any way to export the data in an usefull form? For example Excel, CSV?

  2. You can export the Unx metadata to Excel using Unx Documenter tool
