Create a simple association to join classes (8.3)

Updated on May 3, 2021

Create a simple association to quickly define an explicit relationship between two classes. Use a simple association when all of the following conditions are true.

  • The join is to only one class.
  • The join type is left outer.
  • The join is to a class using a singular key.

Use an advanced association for all other conditions. View associations that are available for reporting in the Visual data model.

The following figure shows the configuration for a simple association:
