I only use SD 4.5 but you can generate the data dictionary in the administration menu.
Just look in the online help there you get a description how to do this

Re: SD 5.x Web-Api data dictonary guide needed

I installed, advised by a HP support case manager,the web api. But still haven't found the badly needed "Data_Dictornary_Items.htm" which is mentioned in the "Programming interface manual" and i can't find any info / instructions on generating the data dictionary from the administration menu.

We are using SD 5.0

Someone who could help mne out.

Hi


Page 212 of the sd_administrators_guide.pdf for V5.x

Generate a Data Dictionary
The data dictionary is a collection of descriptions of the operational
tables in the Service Desk database. Each database table is listed with a
descriptive name, its relationships to other tables, and its columns. Each
column is listed with its data type, possible predefined values, and a brief
textual description. The data dictionary can be organized into a book for
reference.

To generate a data dictionary:
1. In the HP OpenView Configuration workspace group, select the
System Settings workspace.

2. Double-click the Report Settings icon.
The Report Settings dialog box opens.

3. Click the Generate Data Dictionary button.

The print preview of the data dictionary appears.

Reporting
Database Reports
Chapter 6 213

4. Print the data dictionary by selecting Print from the toolbar, or
publish the data dictionary in HTML format by selecting Publish
from the toolbar.
5. Click Close in the data dictionary print preview.
6. Click OK or Cancel to close the Report Settings dialog box.
