Associations

The “Associations” tab shows a graph with the views of the database and their associations.

Graph with associations

By default, the tool only displays the views with associations. Clear the check box Show only views with associations to display all the views.

You can zoom in/out the diagram and export it to a file.

An association links two views, each playing a role in the association. In the graph, the rectangles represent views and the arrows, the roles of the view in the associations. Views belonging to a different database from the selected one are represented in a different color.

Move the mouse over a view to see information about it: the name of the views associated with this one. By clicking on the name of the view, you go to the Query section of that view (see section Query).

Move the mouse over the arrow of an association to see information about it: the roles and multiplicity of the views involved in the association and their mapping.

You can focus the graph of associations on a specific view, by typing its name in the input box at the top left corner of the screen. Once you start typing, it displays the auto-complete list of views that will help you to select one.
