Visual Query Builder

The Visual Query Builder is a workspace in Context Graph Visualization that performs simple and complex query functions on existing models in a visual manner.

You begin by dragging a single entity type to the workspace. You can then use the Assistant to select from a list of relationship types and entity types that are connected to that initial entity type and build your query from there. You can also drag additional entity types to the workspace and draw connections between them to add relationship types to the query. To do this, you need be familiar with connections and types of relationships between entities in your data model, You can narrow the results of your query by applying properties to entity types or by applying relationship counts to relationship types. Both of these criteria act as constraints.

Although you build and run a query in Visual Query Builder, query results are loaded to the Context Graph Visualization Canvas. You view the results of a query by opening the Canvas workspace.
