    Mapping Table Configuration Restrictions

    Most mapping tables can be configured at the institution level. In some cases, it is necessary to configure mapping tables at specific levels. As a rule, if the mapping table is used for an entity that belongs to a specific institution (such as an institution, a data source, or a view), it should be configured at the institution level. For more information on configuration levels, see Primo Configuration Levels.
    Tables that cannot be modified at a specific configuration level are view only until you select the correct configuration level in the Update for Owner drop-down list. Customers who do not have installation-level permissions may not have access to some tables.
