The scope is a one-on-one representation of your data model. Use the scope to limit the data to be visualised or expand the data to be visualised. Without specifying a Scope, the currently active object or objects are visualised. All Sub-Objects, relational Object Descriptions and relational Sub-Object Descriptions will be visualised.
To limit the data included in the visualisation, select the Sub-Objects, relational Object Descriptions, and relational Sub-Objects Descriptions that you want to include. All unselected Sub-Objects, relational Object Description, and relational Sub-Objects Descriptions will not be included in the visualisation. To only include the Object without any additional elements, check the 'Object Only' checkbox.
To expand the data included in the visualisation, use the available relations to related Object Types, Classifications, and Reversed Classifications. The 🢓 icon depicts an outgoing relationship, the 🢑 icon depicts an incoming relationship. After checking a checkbox, the available Sub-Objects, relational Object Description, relational Sub-Objects Descriptions, and incoming and outgoing relations to other Types, Classifications, and Reversed Classifications will be shown. All these settings can be used in the same way as the settings of the Type, Classification, or Reversed Classification with which you started.
The Scope communicates with the Filter functionality. You can activate path-aware filtering on referenced Object Types, Classifications, and Reversed Classifications by checking the 'filter' checkbox. With this configuration the set filter will be performed within the path created by the Scope.
To use the related Object Types, Classifications, and Reversed Classifications as a link between two or more related Object Types, Classifications, or Reversed Classifications, check the 'Collapse' checkbox. The collapsed elements will now be shown as links instead of nodes.
