Enterprise Data Dictionaries (EDD) lets you share a single data dictionary amongst multiple diagrams in the same Repository. Instead of being stored in a particular DM1 file, an EDD is stored in the Repository, and bound to the DM1 files that use it. A change made to an EDD propagates to any DM1 to which dictionary is bound.

You can have multiple dictionaries per diagram. This means that you can have one all-encompassing dictionary or project-level dictionaries.

Magic Wand Icon.pngTip: It is a good idea to check in the Enterprise Data Dictionary after adding new objects. Otherwise, other users will not be able to use them or the current diagram will not check in successfully if the new dictionary objects have been used.
