Entity: masterData

The masterData entity is used for grouping data as data in itself, and not as the usual collection of attributes. It can cover relatively static reference data, transactional, unstructured, analytical and hierarchical data, and is often represented as a table or (potentially multi-layer) codelist.
More detailed information on the usage can be found in the description of the retrieveAfsTable function.

Example usage

Below is an example masterData entity of entityType table, filled with some attributes and some table rows represented as another masterData entity of entityType tableRow. This example (partially) represents a multi-layered table of professions. Note that attributes within a masterData entity/table do not necessarily have to be attributes from the AFD. See AFD Online for the complete and up-to-date data catalog with all the attributes listed under the masterData entity.
