An entity represents a data table that holds information within the data model. In Wyn Enterprise, you can easily add an entity by either binding to an existing data table or creating a new data table through the SQL query. This article describes the steps to add an entity in a data model and its important properties. For more information, refer to the following sections.
To add a new entity, in the Entities list on the left, click the Add icon.
Note that the Properties pane automatically expands on the right of the workspace.
Enter the name and description of the new entity, and then click the list icon in the Binding property.
If you want to add a new entity by binding, select the Binding option and choose a data table from the provided list.
If you want to add a new entity through a SQL query, select the Query option and enter the SQL statement to define the new entity.
Click the Add button. A newly added entity will appear in the list of entities on the left.
