I have created a Naming standards template and applied bindings. When I pull up physical tables, I see the template in the bindings. So far so good.
Now I want to "apply the naming". I assume you do this with the "naming utility". I pull that up, select the template on the first tab, navigate to the second tab, select the objects I want (tables, indexes, foreign keys, columns), and click "run translation".
Nothing is renamed in the model. Is this only supposed to be applied during Database Generation? It does not.
I know this must work, but I cannot figure it out. Also is there a better section to log this?
I'm having the same problem in 18.4. I've created a naming Standards template to ensure that all physical names are UpperCamelCase, but can't get it to be applied at all. I've tried it in the LDM and PDM, with all combinations of source and target, but the names don't change.
I've bound all entities and attributes to the template, and also selected them in the Utility (why do I have to keep telling it which objects to apply the template to?)
LATEST NEWS - it DOES convert names if I say the Physical names should be in upper case, but it doesn't do CamelCase.
By the way, ddumas is right about the unhelpful documentation. The Help button on the Naming Standards Utility dialogue takes me to the information about the template - I can't find an explanation of the utility anywhere.
How do I get the Naming Standards Utility to apply the rules to everything in the model, so I don't have to scroll down the list of entities, selecting every single list of attributes (which would be very annoying in a large model like the FIBO one I created recently)
Select everything you want to apply the Naming Standards to before invoking the utility - doing this will cause it to preselect those items in the utility window. If you want all objects to be included, simply do a Ctrl-A on your model, then run the utility.
Thanks again, if only the documentation told me that it would help.
