Object & Model Properties#

The Object & Model Properties macro of the ADONIS Process Manager / ADOIT Enterprise Architect for Confluence provides you with detailed information about a single ADONIS / ADOIT object or model in a highly configurable table.

With the Object & Model Properties macro you can:

  • Display notebook-like details about your object or model in Confluence
  • Configure which attributes and relations should be displayed per macro
  • Configure attribute presets for classes or model types to be displayed in the Object & Model Properties macros in the Confluence Space tools
  • Configure the table layout of the Object & Model Properties macro (responsive / relative / fixed layout)
  • Get a quick preview for model relations as a tooltip by clicking on them in the Object & Model Properties macro
  • Get further options for relations on mouse-over (information on related assets and model previews)
  • Get a quick look at a model with an integrated interactive model preview
  • Navigate in the model preview with zoom and drag and drop
  • Access a model or object in ADONIS / ADOIT from your Object & Model Properties macro in Confluence
  • Build comprehensive documentations by combining the Model Viewer macro and the Object & Model Properties macro to form custom dashboards

Create default configuration for an object class or model type#

You can save an Object & Model Properties macro configuration as a default for an object class or model type in the Space Tools of your Confluence space.

Choose "Space tools" > "Overview" from the bottom of the sidebar. Open the "ADONIS Process Manager / ADOIT Enterprise Architect" tab.

In the left sidebar of the tab, under "PROPERTIES MACRO", you can access the configuration options (Models / Objects / Layout).

In the example below, a default configuration for the displayed model attributes for "Business Process Diagrams" was added. To add such a custom configuration, click the "Add" button. Select the model type you want in the dropdown, and then select the attributes you want in the attributes field. Click "Save" to save your configuration.

To delete a specific configuration, click the "Delete" button (trash can icon) on the right of the configuration, and then click "Save".

To reset the configuration to its default state (only one default configuration available for all model types), click the "Reset" button.

The default configuration for objects works analogously to that of models using object classes instead of model types.

The default layout configuration is set for the Object & Model Properties macro in general (for all classes / model types).
