For example, all objects for which the Project metadata has been specified can be grouped by project. For more information on configuring views and grouping levels, see Creating a View.

Views organize objects in the vault by the metadata properties of objects. Views can be based on, for example, object types, such as Customer or Project, and they can be further subdivided by the properties of the listed objects, such as Country or Customer.
