Add values to a taxonomy


To configure Content Hub, you must either be a superuser or have the necessary permissions granted to you through user group policies.

A taxonomy contains values that you use to organize content into categories. Taxonomies have their own schema so you can extend them with additional properties, such as synonyms. In the following example, a search of the Brand taxonomy for delicious brings up the taxonomy Flavorful because a synonym is defined in the taxonomy value properties.

Synonym example

Synonyms are also useful when you want to account for regional spelling variants (for example, Flavourful).
