Relational database model

Reference documentation

This is reference documentation covering the entire Atlan model. It is not the best place to start when trying to understand how to manage relational database assets in Atlan. For that, we would suggest starting with the manage relational assets pattern.

These model elements all deal with relational database constructs.

The following illustrates how the various relational database objects inter-relate with each other:

    Connection ||..o{ Database : ""
    Database ||--o{ Schema : schemas
    Schema ||--o{ Table : tables
    Schema ||--o{ View : views
    Schema ||--o{ MaterialisedView : materialisedViews
    Schema ||--o{ Procedure : procedures
    Schema ||--o{ SnowflakePipe : snowflakePipes
    Schema ||--o{ SnowflakeStream : snowflakeStreams
    Schema ||--o{ SnowflakeTag : snowflakeTags
    Table |o--o{ TablePartition : partitions
    Table }o--o{ Query : queries
    Table |o--o{ Column : columns
    View }o--o{ Query : queries
    View |o--o{ Column : columns
    MaterialisedView |o--o{ Column : columns
    TablePartition |o--o{ Column : columns
    Column }o--o{ Query : queries
