SQL Server Solution Item Sample Documentation
Additional Information: You need to take a snapshot of your Solution and SQL Server Solution item before viewing any documentation or lineage. For more information about taking a snapshot, see the Generating Documentation and Scheduling a Snapshot articles.
After adding a Solution with your SQL Server Solution Item, and taking a snapshot, you are ready to view your documentation. View your SQL Servers and their databases.
View database tables and more granular information such as table columns, or foreign keys.
Additional Information: For more information about the Documentation tab in SentryOne Document, see the Documentation article.
SQL Server Solution Item Sample Lineage
After adding a Solution with your SQL Server Solution Item, and taking a snapshot, you are ready to view your Solution's lineage within the environment. Lineage provides some of the same options on the nodes, but displays graphs and dependency flows of the information and connections. You can adjust the granularity or apply filters.
Display lineage for your SQL Server Databases and Database tables.
Display more granular lineage for table columns, foreign keys, and indexes.
