Generic Query

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.
