Group database objects into smaller comprehensible topics

One of the key value added features of Dataedo is the ability to group database objects in to modules. Modules are not defined in database but in Dataedo repository. You can add one module for each logical group of database or topic.

Assign to module

Easier to understand

Adding modules is used to break down complex databases into smaller comprehensible parts. Each chapter describes one aspect or part of your database.

Introduction, list of objects and ERD

Each module consists of an introduction (long rich text with images, learn more), a list of assined database objects (tables, views, procedures and functions) and an Entity Relationship Diagram (built from assigned tables and views).
