Adding a Conduit

Last modified on July 29th, 2014.


A 'Conduit' construct can be added to a 'Asset Diagram' via drag-and-drop. The example used on this page connects two (2) 'Asset' constructs with a 'Conduit' construct. Below is an outline of the necessary steps:

Adding a New Conduit

  1. Within an 'Asset Diagram', select the 'Asset' you would like connected to another 'Asset'.

    Select an Asset

  2. Click the green circle and continue to hold down the left mouse button.

    Click New Conduit

  3. Drag the green circle over to another 'Asset' of your choice.

    Drag New Conduit

  4. When the other 'Asset' box highlights green, release the left mouse button to drop the new 'Conduit' and add it to the diagram.

    Drop New Conduit

    Notice the 'Conduit' stays selected once it has been dropped. Since it is selected, the toolbar changes to include buttons for functions which can be used on the construct. The sidebar also changes to include additional 'Attributes' and 'Metadata' tabs.

  5. Once added to the diagram, enter a meaningful 'Name' for your new 'Conduit' via the 'Attributes' tab of the left sidebar (focused automatically for convenience).

    Name New Conduit

  6. Click the 'Save' button located on the toolbar to persist your changes to your project's database.
