Unbinding an Enterprise Data Dictionary from a Diagram
You can unbind an Enterprise Data Dictionary from a Diagram when you no longer need to use it. The Remove Enterprise Data Dictionary operation automatically updates the Repository server with the appropriate information. For example, a user has a Diagram that has an attribute bound to a domain in an Enterprise Data Dictionary called MyEnterpriseDD. When the user removes MyEnterpriseDD from the diagram, subsequent users who get the Diagram from the Repository will get a version of the Diagram that does not have MyEnterpriseDD in it; furthermore, the attribute is unbound from the domain.
- Check out the diagram.
- On the Data Model Explorer, select the Data Dictionary tab, and then select the Enterprise Data Dictionary you want to unbind.
- Choose Repository > Data Dictionary > Remove Enterprise Data Dictionary.
- You do not need to check in the diagram to commit the change to the repository.
- Any attributes that were bound to Data Dictionary items will be modified. If the attributes are not checked out from the repository before the data dictionary is removed, then ER/Studio Data Architect automatically performs a delayed Check Out.
