Schema

  • Managing node labels

    Node labels identify various types of nodes, or data points, in the graph. Think about them as tables in a relational database. In fact, by default, they are represented as tables in KgBase.

  • Adding properties and relationships

    In this article you'll learn how to build basic schemas by adding properties and relationships to your node types.

  • Property types

    KgBase supports a number of various property types. In this article we'll learn how each type should be used, and how to change them.

  • Meta properties

    When you add meta properties, they will be applied to change how the graph looks.

  • Reordering and resizing columns

    Columns in the table view can be reordered and resized, to help you put more relevant information in a more appropriate place.

  • Linking external tables

    An external table allows you to assign specific attributes to the data already in your KgBase table.

  • Locking the schema

    If you're the project owner, and you've added collaborators to your project, you have the option to lock the schema. This will prevent other users from modifying the schema. Only you, as the project owner, will be able to make changes.

  • Inheritance of node labels

    If some of your node labels have common properties, you can set up an inheritance structure. Start by creating a node label for all the common properties - the "parent node label". Then, you set up specific node labels to inherit properties from the parent node.

  • Changing graph shapes

    For each node type, you can select a different shape which will be displayed in the graph. This allows you to differentiate your node types not only with color, but also with the shape.
