Aptify periodically receives requests from clients for Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs) of Aptify. Entity Relationship Diagrams help a developer visualize Many-to-Many relationships, Ambiguities, Entities, and the relationship between Entities (including the degree of a relationship). However, the dynamic nature of Aptify makes it difficult to provide a static set of ERDs to clients. Since Aptify is a development environment that allows clients to add or edit tables, any standard ERD would quickly become outdated once an organization begins to configure the system.
This topic describes two techniques for creating your own ERDs that will accurately reflect the current configuration of your Aptify installation.
