Entity Map View

Entity Map View

The entity map is a graphical representation of the tables in an entity and the relationships between the tables.
When you create an entity, you define a driving table for the entity. The driving table is a starting point for determining the structure of the entity. Test Data Manager determines the rest of the tables in the entity based on the constraints that include the driving table.
If you drag the entity map panel to the left, a
Table Properties
panel appears that includes information about a selected table or constraint.
You can select any table in the map to edit the filter criteria. You can click a link to edit the constraint between the tables. You can disable relationships between tables from the map. When you select links in the
Entity Map
view, the corresponding rows are selected in the
Relationships
view.

Entity Map Example

You might define the driving table as Employee. Employee has a primary key, EmpID. Employee has three child tables that have the EmpID foreign key. The EmployeeBankDetails child table has an AccountNum constraint that relates EmployeeBankDetails to a BankAccounts table. When you create an entity with Employee as the driving table, Test Data Manager might create an entity map similar to the following map:
In the entity map, arrows point from the Employee driving table to the EmployeeAddressDetails, EmployeeBankDetails, and EmployeeDetails tables. An arrow points from the EmployeeBankDetails table to the BankAccounts table.
The driving table icon contains a star in the entity map.
To add a filter criteria for Employee, click the Employee table in the entity map. Edit the filter criteria from the Table Properties panel.
To edit the constraint between the EmployeeDetails and Employee table, click the link between the tables.
When you click the links between the Employee, EmployeeBankDetails, and BankAccounts table, the corresponding rows are selected in the
Relationships
view.
