We want our tool to enable a description of a schema for nontechnical users and meaning of data. That's why we want to add Business Glossary functionality that will be comprised of a list or hierarchy of business terms, policies or rules.
Business glossary will be another type of documentation:

- type - term, category, policy and rule (with an option to extend in the future)

Users will also be able to link business glossary to data elements - tables or columns.
There will be navigation in two directions between business glossary and data dictionary.
Business glossary will be included in PDF and HTML exports:
