Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

Entity Relationship Diagram creation utility
An Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) is a graphic description of the logical structure of a database. Database administrators often rely on conceptual and physical data models to understand the relationships among tables, records, and data, and to produce reports.
The Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) Creation utility enables you to generate Database Definition Language (DDL) statements that you can import into any tool that is capable of producing this type of conceptual data model. For example, Erwin Data Modeler can create a visual Service Manager data model when you import a DDL file created by the ERD Creation utility. If you have administrative rights, you can customize the files and links used to create the component DDL statements.
