Consulting a resource

Each item published in SECollab is uniquely identified using a Unique Resource Identifier (URI). You can provide this unique address to another member of the project to point to a particular item, for example.

Properties of a resource

The page of a resource displays several areas:

Preview of a linked resource

Each resource linked to the main resource is presented with a hyperlink to navigate to that linked resource. When you hover over the hyperlink, a window displays a preview of the referenced resource. This allows you to view the main properties of this resource without having to navigate to the dedicated page.

Viewing a Diagram

In the case where the resource is a diagram, the main part of the page displays the diagram image. You can change the zoom used to display the image.

Note that a button on the toolbar hides the zone on the right-hand side of the page. This function is especially useful in case you want to save space to display the image of a largely sized chart.

The diagram image displays graphic shapes that represent elements of the models. These shapes are highlighted when you hover the mouse over them. You can select a graphic form displayed in the diagram. In this case, the Properties, Links and Comments boxes display the information for the selected resource rather than the information in the diagram.

A drop-down menu is available on the graphic forms of the diagram:

Exploring the graph of a resource

It is possible to display the links of the resource as a graph. For more information, see the section Exploring a resource graph.

Generating a report on a resource

Via the Report button, it is possible to produce a report document on the current resource. For more detailed information, see the section Generating a report.
