CloudConnect Modeler Toolbar and Search

If you do not have significant experience with data model or who prefer to learn the application before using it to build, review content in the following order:

  1. Planning Your Data Model. Regardless of your data modeling experience, every user should review the Planning Your Data Model chapter, which provides an overview of data modeling in CloudConnect and some best practices to designing within the application. See Logical Data Model Components in GoodData.
  2. Logical Data Model User Interface. Review this chapter to map the content of the previous chapter to the application. See CloudConnect Modeler User Interface.
  3. Working with Logical Data Models and Working with Objects in Your Data Model. These two chapters provide information on how to work with the content of your data model to manage large-scale changes. See Working with Logical Data Models in CloudConnect and Working with LDM Objects in CloudConnect.
  4. Tutorial - Creating Your First Data Model. At this point, novice users are ready to step through the tutorial, which covers how to build the logical data model for a simple Human Resources application. See Creating Your First Data Model in CloudConnect.
