Visio Shapes とAmazon DynamoDB Data を連携





Amazon DynamoDB ODBC Driver

Amazon DynamoDB ODBC ドライバーは、ODBC 接続をサポートする任意のアプリケーションからリアルタイムなAmazon DynamoDB NoSQL データベースデータに直接接続できるパワフルなツールです。標準のODBC ドライバーインターフェースを使用して、データベースのようにDynamoDB データにアクセスし、NoSQL テーブルの読み、書き、更新を実行できます。



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

Connect to Amazon DynamoDB 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.

Amazon DynamoDB への接続には、AccessKey、SecretKey、オプションでDomain とRegion を設定します。 AWS サービスアカウントのセキュリティクレデンシャルページでAccessKey とSecretKey を取得できます。 Region は、DynamoDB にログインしている時の左上に表示されています。

Connect Amazon DynamoDB 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 Amazon DynamoDB, select the table you want to import, and finish the wizard. This article uses Lead as an example.

Link Amazon DynamoDB 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 Amazon DynamoDB entities to shapes:

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

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