Edit an Entity Type Using Hub Central


If an entity type has already been used to map or match and merge data, then modifying or deleting it might trigger a reindexing of all your curated data and might affect the results of mapping and mastering processes that are occurring concurrently.

MarkLogic recommends scheduling a time to modify or delete used entity types when the impact would be minimal.
