How can I see all of the current Adapters/Locker joins?

How can I view which Adapters and Lockers objects are currently joined in the UNIFYBroker/Plus UI?

Hi Adrian,

You can see which entities have joins using the Delete Join feature (without actually deleting anything, of course). You can see either adapter or locker entities with joins, but not what one is joined to, unfortunately. See Manual Joining documentation for more info.

Is this enough for now? Going to add a backlog item to implement a proper join viewer. Ideally, what information would you most want available in such a feature.

Thanks, that's very useful.

Being able to see which Adapter entities a Locker is connected to would be really useful as well though - sometimes I'm investigating, but not starting from a Connector/Adapter directly.

My "Ideal World" solution would be something like this.  Starting from a Locker:


From an Adapter:


Starting from a Connector would be similar to starting from an Adapter.

Notes:

  1. Each of the UUID links would navigate to the above screen with the selected object as the new starting point, to allow for interactive object navigation.
  2. The fields "(xx)" included above were chosen carefully in order to provide enough information to be sufficiently useful without overloading the user.
  3. Joined transforms should continue through to the corresponding adapters, but not any further.
  4. No attempt should be made to process an already-travelled relation in reverse (i.e. if you showed Connector A with Adapter B as a descendant then you wouldn't show Connector A again as a descendant of Adapter B).
  5. Where no Adapter object exists the relationship to a potential Connector should still be shown (see greyed out text above).  Where no Connector object exists, it should be indicated similarly, but no further potential relationships should be shown.

Thanks for feedback. Will definitely be useful.
