Entity Delete Profile¶
The performance of programmatically soft-deleting an existing entity instance.
The Open Metadata Repository Services (OMRS) interface for a metadata repository defines an optional method for deleting entity instances:
||soft-deletes the current version of an entity|
||See (2) in detailed logic below.|
||See detailed logic of entity purge profile.|
For every entity type supported by the technology under test, this profile does the following (in order):
- Searches for
instancesPerTypeentities of that type. (This uses
findEntitiesByPropertywith a condition on
metadataCollectionIdand its performance is recorded as part of the entity search profile.)
- For each of these entity instances,
deleteEntityis called to soft-delete it.
So, for example, if the technology under test supports 50 entity types, and the
instancesPerType parameter is set to 100, then this profile will soft-delete 50 (types) x 100 (instances per type) = 5000 entities. (And it will run
findEntitiesByProperty 50 times.)
