Visio Shapes とTigerGraph Data を連携





TigerGraph ODBC Driver

TigerGraph ODBC Driver は、ODBC 接続をサポートするあらゆるツールからのシームレスなTigerGraph データ連携を実現します。

使い慣れたODBC インターフェースで、自由自在にTigerGraph データを活用できます。

Visio master shapes での変更を自動的にTigerGraph data に更新。

Automate the process of entering data into Visio diagrams and keeping your diagrams up to date with the CData ODBC Driver for TigerGraph. The driver surfaces TigerGraph data as an ODBC data source that can be accessed by applications with built-in ODBC support like Microsoft Office. This article shows how to create a simple diagram to start brainstorming about Visio projects linked to TigerGraph data.

Connect to TigerGraph as an ODBC Data Source

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

To authenticate with your TigerGraph instance, set the User, Password, and URL properties to valid TigerGraph credentials. By default connections are made on port 14240.

Connect TigerGraph Data to Diagrams

Follow the steps below to use the Data Selector Wizard to import data into your diagram.

  1. Open Visio and click File -> New. Open the Brainstorming template.
  2. On the Data tab, click Link Data to Shapes.
  3. Select the ODBC option and select ODBC DSN.
  4. Select the DSN for TigerGraph, select the table you want to import, and finish the wizard. This article uses person as an example.

Link TigerGraph Entities to Shapes

Follow the steps below to create a simple diagram that shows how to create shapes from your data, one of the ways to link TigerGraph entities to shapes:

  1. Click Brainstorming Shapes and drag a main topic onto the drawing page. Enter person as the text of the main topic.
  2. Click Topic.
  3. Select a row in the External Data window and drag it onto the drawing page.
  4. Right-click the Topic shape and click Data -> Edit Data Graphic.
  5. Click New Item.
  6. In the Data Field menu, select a column. In the Displayed As menu, select how to display them.
  7. Drag a few other TigerGraph entities onto the drawing page and add association lines back to the main topic, person. New topics have the same configuration: Numeric columns displayed in data bars stand out in contrast to other person entities.

You can refresh your diagram from the Data tab, synchronizing your shapes with the external TigerGraph data.
