Data Graphs Asset Collection

Licensing and Enablement

The availability of any asset collection is determined by what is (a) licensed and (b) configured under Server Administration. To install a license or to view the currently licensed features, see Setup > Product Registration. To configure which licensed collection types are currently enabled or disabled, see Setup - EDG Configuration Parameters.

For general licensing information and available asset collections and packages, see the TopQuadrant website.

Data Graphs are general collections, used for instances of classes defined in user-designed ontologies. This means that you, as a user, decide what data to store in a data graph.

Data Graphs are available as add-on module that can be combined with any package of TopBraid EDG. 

When creating a new Data Graph, select an Ontology that will define it. You will be able to work with instances of classes that are:

  1. SHACL node shapes
  2. Declared as public (directly, or through a parent class) in the GraphQL Schema section of the Ontology’s form – access it by clicking on the “home” icon

For details, see ontology Ontologies > SHACL Enablement.

After creating a new Data Graph, you can specify the Main Class on the Manage tab if desired. This will determine the default asset type selection for the Search panel in the editor page. This setting can be changed at any time. All classes are still available in the type selector dialog. 

Please see the Asset Collection Guide for all the general features of asset collections such as import/export, editing, user permissions, reports and settings.
