Enable SE models to be populated with external data

Enable SE models to be populated with external data

To maintain a complete overview of the complexity of a project, Relatics offers the possibility to view all data as one coherent whole. This coherent whole is being realized despite the data being managed by Relatics or external applications. As a result, the SE model should be constructed independently of where the data ownership lies. Two things are required to populate Relatics with data managed by an external application: a type element where the ownership is configured as external and an interface to handle the requests. This article explains the first.

Create a type element to be populated with external data*

  1. Create a standard type element, and in the dialog New type element, enter the settings of the type element.
  2. In the dialog New type element, on the tab Advanced, set the Ownership in to External application.
  3. Click on Create. As a result, the dialog is closed, and the new type element is created.

Note:

  • A type element configured as external can have a mix of internal and external properties and relations.

Create a type property to be populated with external data*

  1. Create a type property, and in the dialog New type property, enter the settings of the type property.
  2. On the tab Advanced, set the Ownership in to External application.
  3. Click on Create. As a result, the dialog is closed, and a new type property is created.

Note:

  • The option Ownership in is only available for properties if the type element field Ownership in is configured as External application.
  • The data type attachment is not supported for interfaces.
  • There cannot be an external property named ExternalId in the type element.

Create a type relation to be populated with external data*

  1. Create a type relation, and in the dialog New type relation, enter the settings of the type relation.
  2. On the tab Advanced, set the Ownership in to External application.
  3. Click on Create. As a result, the dialog is closed, and a new type relation is created.

Note:

  • The option Ownership in is only available for properties if the type element field Ownership in is configured as External application.
* In the workspace, the user type of your user must be set to power user to enable this feature.
