I can't seem to reach the right-click menu on table relationship lines after I've added their tables to a Business Data Object.
Specifically, if I right click on a relationship line outside of a BDO I get a relationship specific context menu.
When the line is inside a BDO the line looses focus on right click and the BDO specific menu appears instead.
This problem doesn't seem to affect table entities in the BDO so the problem doesn't affect everything but it certainly affects relationship lines.
Is there any way to get around this? That is, is there any other way to get to that menu or at least the items that appear on it.
Are you using Data Architect or Business Architect?
If you are using Business Architect, is this in the Conceptual Diagram or the Business Process Diagram?
Data Architect - Logical Model for sure. I've not tried physical.
First, I would recommend opening up a support case to get this logged and fixed. I would think you should be able to right click on a relationship within a BDO to edit it.
Depending on what menu option you're looking for they should all be up top. If you click on the relationship line and you're looking to change the layout from Elbow to Straight then you can do this through the Format -> Layout Relationships menu. Colour changing would be here as well.
This is a known bug that will be fixed in a future release. In the interim, a workaround is to simply click and drag a portion of the relationship line outside the BDO frame. Right click will work on the segment that is outside the frame.
Another workaround you can use without moving the relationship is to select it in the view, then find the selected relationship in the tree (for example, under the Relationships folder). You can then right-click the relationship from the tree.
That's better! Thanks for chiming in.At least it's already reported and queued.
Can you provide a link to the bug report? Colleagues have asked if voting might help get this fixed faster but I only know how to search suggestions not known bugs. Basically I'm looking for a way to track this issue's status. Thanks!
