Visio Shapes とAWS Management Data を連携





AWS Management ODBC Driver

AWS 設定 & 支払情報にODBC インターフェースで連携。

Visio master shapes での変更を自動的にAWS Management 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 AWS Management. The driver surfaces AWS Management 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 AWS Management data.

Connect to AWS Management 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.

AWSDataManagement への接続には、管理者アカウントかカスタム許可のIAM ユーザーで行います。:

  1. AccessKey Id: Access Key を設定。
  2. SecretKey: secret access key に設定。
  3. Regio:AWSDataManagement データがホストされているRegion に設定。

Note: AWS アカウント管理者でも接続できますが、IAM ユーザークレデンシャルでの接続が推奨されます。

Connect AWS Management 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 AWS Management, select the table you want to import, and finish the wizard. This article uses NorthwingProducts as an example.

Link AWS Management 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 AWS Management entities to shapes:

  1. Click Brainstorming Shapes and drag a main topic onto the drawing page. Enter NorthwingProducts 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 AWS Management entities onto the drawing page and add association lines back to the main topic, NorthwingProducts. New topics have the same configuration: Numeric columns displayed in data bars stand out in contrast to other NorthwingProducts entities.

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