Manager Dashboard

The Manager Dashboard is a place where users can create, edit, and view their graph models. A graph model describes the structure of a graph database. Graphs are comprised of two components, nodes and edges, and each have defined properties. GraphGrid Manager allows users to create properties and node and edge types with each having their own definitions and optional constraints.

To navigate to the Manager Dashboard, use the toggle menu in the upper left corner of the Curator projects page (homepage).


This is the Manager Dashboard. The left panel provides the options to view all types (nodes, edges, and properties).

Using the Manager Dashboard


Clicking the > icon will bring up an expanded view of the nodeType, edgeType, or property.


Clicking the >> icon will bring up a detailed view. In this view users view the node or edge type's properties and associated node or edge types, and details for properties.


Users can also edit the nodetype, edgeType, or property type by clicking the pencil icon.



When adding a property to a nodeType or edgeType, ensure that the property is selected form the list in the dropdown menu after searching for it. Screenshot

Users can delete the noteType, edgeType, or property be clicking the red trash can icon.


To move out of the detailed view, click the X icon.


Searching in the Manager Dashboard

The Manager Dashboard contains search functionality for node types, edge types, and properties. It is important to note that newly created node, edge types, and properties will not show up in search unless continuous search indexing is applied or indexing is manually run using a Search indexing endpoint.

Newly added properties will not appear in the "Add Property" list unless continuos search indexing or an indexing endpoint is manually run.

All Types

The "All Types" dashboard view shows both nodes and edges. Here users can view and edit all node types and edge types in the left panel. On the right is an interactive graph that represents the manager model itself.

The graph represents the manager model of each node type. The information displayed in the box comes from the information set up upon node creation in the graph database, ONgDB.

idThe grn or unique identifier of the node type.
keyThe key value assigned to the node type.
definitionThe definition of the node type.
displayValueThe value displayed in the graph for this node type.
labelThe label used by the Manager Dashboard to distinguish between nodeTypes and edgeTypes.
createdAtA timestamp from when the node type was created in the graph database.
createdByThe user who created the node type in the graph database.
updatedAtA timestamp showing when the node type was last updated.
lastModifiedByThe user who last modified the node type.
PropertiesA list of properties assigned to this node type and the data type of each.

Pictured below is an example of the all types views showing two node types of Movie and Person and their associated edges.


Notice the orange text connecting the node types and relationships. This text is a quick way to view the incoming or outgoing relationships between node types.

Ex. Person-DIRECTED-Movie

Clicking on a node or edge type will bring up a detailed view. For example, here is what clicking on the edge DIRECTED looks.


Node Types

Here users can view the node types of the manager model

The left panel lists all of the node types alond with their display values and timestamp of when they were last modified.

Below are two node types, Movie and Person.


To create a new node type, click the plus icon at the top of the list.

Edge Types

View, edit, and add edge types from the Edge Type panel. Edges are the connecting relationships between nodes. Here we can see the relationships created by the Movie Graph and their properties.

Like nodes, edges have a display value. This is the value that is shown on the graph database itself. Users can control what the display value is and keep track of when it was last modified.



Here are the properties of the manager model. In this panel, users can view, edit and add properites associated with node and edge types.
