Visual Modeling

Another way to create models is to perform visual modeling in the Relationship Analysis Client by manually adding entities and relationships from the Toolbox. You first need to establish types of entities and at least one type of relationship, but after that you could either use the same types of entities and relationships to populate your model, or you could create additional types of entities and relationships.

Within the visual modeling method in the Relationship Analysis Client, another way you can create and populate your model is by using metadata. First you add information types, in the form of entities. From there you can add relationships between those entities and completely populate the model from within the Relationship Analysis Client, manually adding properties for the entities and relationships, or you can instead populate it by mapping input fields to entities and defining relationships from within the Write to Hub stage.

Models created from either method of visual modeling can be queried against just like models that are created in Write to Hub or Import to Hub.
