Data Model Viewer – Updates
When they are not working making toys for Father Christmas, the elves take time out to update the Data Model Viewer. This little tool came out of a desire to be able to see what is going on in an Oracle Policy Automation project at a high level. Questions like:
- How many entities and attributes?
- How many temporal attributes?
- How many named attributes?
- What relationships?
- What Value Lists?
And of course, the ability to print the model in PDF, zoom in and out and so on. Well, with a little bit of Visual Studio magic, and the help of the Internet, the Data Model Viewer was born. We recently updated some things in it like:
- Snapshot of the Project
A great way to have a split-second overview of the project.
- Icon-based Attribute Lists
We pulled the text labels and replaced them with icons.
- Enumerations (Value Lists)
Now you can add Value Lists to your diagram with ease.
- Highlight (un)named attributes and temporal attributes
Useful to see how many mapped or temporal things are going on in your project.
- Change color schemes
Because not everyone likes bright red boxes!
- Set prefixes for searching attributes
Sometimes you just want to highlight things
- Change Diagram type
Anneal (Ring) or Hierarchy depending on your preference.
- Export to PDF
Obviously – and also to SVG for easy manipulation.
We’ll keep adding to it until we are satisfied that it holds everything that might be useful. If you have anything on your “would like to see in OPM but won’t ever get it” list then please get in touch. In the meantime, you can also download the app from the OPA Hub Website Shop of course.
