Profiles: Profiles are individual entities for which information is stored. The system supports Traveler, Corporation, Agent, Agency, and Operational profiles.

Templates: A Template can be created to govern the structure of each profile type. It provides the basis that determines which items or data elements within the database are available for you to update a profile.

Filters: Filters are used to store information about data elements, associated profiles, and formats that are copied into the Sabre GDS PNR. Users can pre-define filters and determine the default to be used for profiles.

Formats: Formats are used to store custom-defined Sabre GDS (TPF) entries that can be used to enter information into the Passenger Name Record (PNR).

Metadata: Metadata is used to define available GUI elements and default element values. Its attributes define the identifier of the Metadata object in the system.

Validator: The Validator defines additional data validations across different POS. A Validator is supported by backend services; once created, it prevents setting illegal data values by any POS using a Profile.

Associations: This object maintains associations for large groups of objects.

Additional information about these elements and their functionality can be found in the Sabre Profiles Technical User Guide.
