E/R Queries

This section contains queries against the tables in Designer that apply to the ERD tool.  I used these instead of trying to modify the ckentdef report.  For fancier reports, modify the ckentdef.rdf and other reports under the Entity/Relationship Modelling [sic] section of the Repository Reports.
 
Containers

Entities

Entities and Attributes

Entities, Attributes, and Domains

Domains with Values

Attributes with Values




REM DES_CONTAINER.SQL by Mike Moxcey
REM ===========================================================
REM This query gets you the list of containers in Designer
REM Copy the container you want into the other queries
REM ===========================================================

column name format A40 trunc

select id,name from ci_container_elements
/

This will output all names of all containers, even subcontainers.  You can do something fancy to get the hierarchy if you need (but Iíd just use the report then).  Output looks like this:

       ID NAME
--------- -----------------
1.773E+36 SYSTEM FOLDER
7.302E+35 TUTORIAL
7.341E+35 Moxcey
7.415E+35 MIS2000 (6)

Copy the NAME you need exactly as it appears for the other queries.



 

REM DES_ENT.SQL by Mike Moxcey
REM ====================================================
REM This gets the list of entities based on a container name
REM You can get the container name by running DES_CONTAINER.SQL
REM ===================================================

select ENT.name, ENT.short_name
from ci_folder_members APPENT, ci_entities ENT
where APPENT.member_object=ENT.id
and APPENT.folder_reference in
 (select id from ci_container_elements
  where name = 'MIS2000 (6)'
 )
order by name
/

You can see how I copy&pasted the container name directly into the query.  There are probably ways to do this differently, but I'm only ever working in one container at a time so this is quick enough.
 

Sample output:

SQL> start des_ent

NAME                 SHORT_NAME
-------------------- ----------
ACTIVITY             ACT
ACTIVITY UOM         ACTUOM
ADDRESS              ADDR
ADDRESS CONTACT TYPE ADDCONTTYP

Sample Output.  It shows those that donít have domains, too.

No sample output because I've cleaned it up and have put all values into domains, not in attributes.
