SmartDocs allows you to configure metadata for your reusable snippets on a per SmartDocs repository basis. This metadata is used to classify your snippets, so that writers can easily find snippets to reuse in their documents.
Proper use of metadata makes your snippets easy to search for and browse through. Whenever you execute a snippet search in SmartDocs, all metadata that you have configured for that SmartDocs repository is automatically searched. In addition, metadata can be used to automatically generate the physical folder structure for your reusable snippet library.
