Write to Model

The Write to Model stage uses input data to create or update a Context Graph model that contains entities, relationships, and properties.

The Write to Model stage can be used to link data together, resulting in a complex network of relationships called a graph, which can be displayed in a Context Graph model. Once that model is created, it can be queried against in a Read From Model stage or a Query Model stage, or it can be visualized in Context Graph Visualization workspaces or in the Relationship Analysis Client to identify relationships and trends that may otherwise be hard to find.

To configure a Write to Model stage, you need to complete the Entities tab and the Relationships tab. You can also use the Options tab to set processing preferences and determine how you want data to be written to the graph database.

For more information, see Sample Model to Context Graph Dataflow for examples of configuring Write to Model in a dataflow from start to finish using a flat file and an XML file.
