Source Data Fields

4. Source Data Fields
  •  Node*: the framework node where the data is located
  •  Source*: the element at the beginning of the relationship
  •  Target*: the element at the end of the relationship
  •  Key: used for filtering (only one Key filter should be used within the report)
  •  Information: labels the line with the element selected
  •  Information (override): text field used to set a term or phrase to use as the label on the line (and override what may have been selected in the Information field)
  •  Source Port and Target Port: used in Component diagrams to display ports, when applicable
  •  Sequence: sets the message order in Sequence diagrams
  •  Type: used to set the stereotype label on the line
  •  Case: used for filtering text and single reference elements; specifically for use in sequence and state diagrams
  •  If checked, Enforce Source Node only displays the relationships that were created in the selected node; it will not show relationships for a node with a different record type


5. Save
The Save button saves the information currently entered in the Relationship form and disables editing. A warning pops up if a required field has not been completed. This Save button only saves this Relationship form; it does not save the overall report design (use Save Report in the Ribbon Bar for this).
