Purpose: The Purpose of the Generic Query template is to provide datasets for QualiWare System templates.
Core concerns: The Generic Query template is an auxiliary template. The Generic Query can be created using a Query Design template which enables you to easily structure the query for creating reports. When creating a Report for a diagram, the Generic Query created using the Query Design should be used as a Data Set in the Report Definition.
A Generic Query can also be generated using its Property Dialog, where you can link to Data Source and filter the data selection using a wizard – see example of the property dialog below:
The Generic Query can, for example, take the form of data sheets:
The Generic Query template can also execute a command using the Advanced Query tab:
Relation to other templates: Generic Queries are automatically created when creating a Query Design. Generic Queries are used in the following templates: HTML Template Definitions, HTML Embedded content, HTML Publisher and HTML Content tab.
Properties and Metadata: The Generic Query can for example rentain the following information:
- A description
- Audits (auto generated information regarding its current state and access rights)
- Query Filter, including a wizard for filter options
- Attribute Definition
- Advanced Query
- Matrix Behavior
The above picture shows the properties dialogue window for the Generic Query where you can view and edit the diagram’s properties in QualiWare Lifecycle Manager.
