The business model is where the logical mapping of business objects to the physical tables and columns you set up takes place. The model is also the place where you define the relationships between your business tables, and organize the business view.
- Right-click Business Models in the navigation pane and select New Business Model. The Business Model Properties dialog box appears as shown above.
- At the top of the dialog box, there is an ID text field, pre-populated with a value. Pentaho recommends you accept the pre-populated value as this value must be unique across all models that you define.
- To name your new model, enter a new value under the Name property text box on the right.
- Click OK to save your changes and exit the dialog box.
