Entity template with same 4 Attributes?


A user needs the same 4 columns in all their tables. What is the easiest way to have an Entity with the same 4 Attributes, as a template that could be easily cut and pasted, or drag and dropped, many times to the same or different workspaces?

thanks for your replies


You can create such an entity in the model.
I suggest the following:

  1. The ‘EntityTemplate’ can exist in your model - it will be listed in Model Explorer from where you will make copies of the entity.
  2. The entity does not have to have any shortcuts on any Workspaces. (It can be just in the Model Explorer.)
  3. The entity will not be generated in final DDL/SQL - remember to clear the Generate checkbox in the Entity Properties form | General tab.

Hope this helps.
