Visio master shapes での変更を自動的にAzure Data Catalog 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 Azure Data Catalog. The driver surfaces Azure Data Catalog 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 Azure Data Catalog data.

Connect to Azure Data Catalog 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.

You can optionally set the following to read the different catalog data returned from Azure Data Catalog.

    CatalogName: Set this to the CatalogName associated with your Azure Data Catalog. To get your Catalog name, navigate to your Azure Portal home page > Data Catalog > Catalog Name

Connect Using OAuth Authentication

You must use OAuth to authenticate with Azure Data Catalog. OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with Azure Data Catalog using the browser. For more information, refer to the OAuth section in the help documentation.

Connect Azure Data Catalog 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 Azure Data Catalog, select the table you want to import, and finish the wizard. This article uses Tables as an example.

Link Azure Data Catalog 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 Azure Data Catalog entities to shapes:

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

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