Adding a data model in DvSum

Data modeling is often the first step in database design to create a conceptual model of how data items are related to each other. A data model template consists of fields defined as Standard, Required and Optional. You can edit the fields as required to define Assets, User Roles, Data Policies or associate Workflows with the fields. You can also create Lineage on assets. 

You can import a Data model template from the market place and map your data to it. Go to Profile tab > Data Models > Add Data Model

This will take you to the Data Model marketplace.

Import the template and give it a title, say, Test DM. After importing the Data model you can start working with the imported fields. Also, you can add Custom fields or associate Terms from Business Glossary to a Data Model.

You can change the view of the field listing to Grid view or to Graph visualizer. You can apply filters to customize the Graphical view.


Click on the Field name to go to the Field detail page. Here, You can edit all the sections.


Under the "Assigned Assets" section, you can define System of References and System of Entry which add the asset icon in lineage designer window. You can connect these assets to create lineage. 

Publish Data Model

Standard/Required fields need to be completed before the Publish Data Model button is enabled. For a field to be considered complete, it needs to have 1 System of Entry/Record with API to delete.


To evaluate your Data Model and see the assessment report, you can read How to create an Assessment using Data Models and Survey?
