7. Cards: advanced features
7.4. Relation graph The purpose of the function is to: • supply a 3D visual and interactive representation of the graph of relations stored in CMDBuild • allow interactive analysis through filters on cards and relations, graph or node expansion, application of pre-defined filters
7.4.1. General design criteria of the user interface The user interface is divided into a graphical area on the left and a text area on the right, which are synchronized. Furthermore, there are two toolbars, one on the top and one at the bottom.
The graphic area includes: •
nodes, having in the middle the card for the graph open and all around the cards linked directly or indirectly, according to the number of displayed levels, and represented with custom icons that have been previously uploaded into the system for each class (or with a default icon in the absence of the custom one)
archi, corresponding to the relations among the nodes
For each node (see previous screenshot) and for each tooltip (see following screenshot) displayed in the graphic area, there is a tooltip with the main information about the element.
