Viewing and editing ontologies

Use the Explorer view to view and edit ontologies.

Before you begin

You must have JazzAdmins privileges in Design Management. An ontology must exist.


  1. Open the Domains project area: Click the Home icon, and under Design Management, click Domains.
  2. On the main toolbar, click Designs > Explorer.
  3. In the Explorer view, browse to an ontology.
    Tip: You can also browse to an ontology by using the Explorer menu, which is on the left side of the page.
  4. Make your changes in the ontology editor; then click Save.


After you update an ontology, consider taking a baseline of the domain or domains that use the ontology so that you can update any project areas that require the updated domain.
