Configuration

Each integration provider comes with a set of default mapping values which determines what type of local element is created in Enterprise Architect, as well as which fields are copied to the new element. These mappings are configurable for each client model.

Permission

Users must have the 'Configure External Data Sources' permission to access this functionality.
