The usage of Metadata can be defined in Odysseus Script with the #METADATA command, in the Access operator with the METAATTRIBUTE parameter or with the Metadata Operator. If neither #METADATA nor Access operator defines meta data, TimeInterval is used per default. It other meta data are used, TimeInterval must be added manually. A typical error is a message like: transformation failed ; Error during transformation. Potential problem operator: ... Are metadata types (#METADATA) set correctly? indicates a missing TimeInterval.
