Quality metrics in Entity Relationship Models

Hi,

Is there any feature in visual paradigm to measure the complexity (even metrics like no of entities, no of attributes etc) of an ER model?

Thanks !

Hi Asa,

Thank you for your inquiry. Please try with the feature below, see if that’s what you look for:

  1. Select Help > Show Loaded Models from the main menu
  2. In the window, checked “DBTable” for its count.

Besides, you can also write a plug in to retrieve the information you want. Samples and guides about plug in development can be found here:

Hope this helps. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Hi Jick,

Thank you very much for your reply.

Is this a feature not available in the community edition?

Thanks.

Hi Asa,

Both the ‘Show Loaded Models’ feature and the API support are available in the Community Edition.
