Classification datasource is used to customize or group similar objects into classes according to criteria specified by end users, it is for master data. The attributes of the characteristics are defined by end users, then group them into classes.

No predefined datasources are available, since they are highly customized by end users. Generally we use this type of extraction for material, customer etc..

you can easily identify these with naming convention 1_CL*

Transaction for Classification datasource is CTBW. you can find more information in below threads
