Creating entities in a data model using a graphical designer


Before you begin

Firstly, you need to create entities in the newly created data model DStar as described in Creating a data model.


  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, double-click the data model to open its editor.
  2. Click the Design tab.
  3. From the Palette on the right side, click Entity and then click in the Data Model Entities area.
    A dialog box pops up.
  4. Enter a name for the new entity. In this example, it is Agency.
    If you want to define a complete structure and reuse it in other entities, enter a name in the complex type field to define a new complex type. For more information, see Creating business entities in a data model.
  5. Click OK to close the dialog box.
    The newly created entity Agency of anonymous type is displayed in the Data Model Entities area with a by default element, which takes its name from the entity name with the suffix Id.
    The complex type, if any, will be displayed in the Data Model Types area.
  6. Repeat the procedure to create a new entity Agent in the data model DStar.
