Grouping Settings for Diagrams


Display of Units

It is possible to group diagrams in the Web publisher by units in the following way:

No Units

Diagrams are not grouped by unit

Group by Unit

Diagrams are grouped by units that are listed in alphabetical order.

Create Unit Hierarchy

Diagrams are grouped by units that are listed in a hierarchy (as in the repository).

  • Include empty units
    This option allows you to publish empty units with no diagrams.

Display for diagrams

Generate a diagram tree

Similarly to the repository, a diagram hierarchy tree can be generated on the Web Portal, displaying diagram links graphically. In contrast to the repository, only diagrams in the selected unit are displayed in the tree and no inherited diagrams. Each diagram is displayed only once on the web.

Group diagrams by

Alternatively to a tree diagram, diagrams as well as objects can be grouped according to the following criteria

  • Diagram Classes
    This option allows you to group diagrams by diagram classes.
  • Diagram Property
    This option allows you to group all diagrams by an enumerator property. has a numerator property (“enumerator” - or ENUM property) called “Type”, by which all diagrams can be grouped. You can also create another numerator property for the class “diagram” in Designer, which you can find and edit limitedly under system classes. If you specify a specific numerator value in the repository for each diagram, diagrams are grouped in the portal according to these values.
  • Group Diagrams Alphabetically
    If you select this option, the diagrams are grouped alphabetically. Determine the number of diagrams per alphabetical group. We recommend that you select this option for large databases with many diagrams per class.
If you enable the option "Group diagrams by" and choose no grouping criteria, diagrams are published in the form of a list.

Collapse root (diagrams) node by default

If you enable this option for diagrams, the diagram branch in the web portal collapses by default.
