Relationship Restore Profile

The performance of programmatically reversing the latest soft-delete of an existing relationship instance.

The Open Metadata Repository Services (OMRS) interface for a metadata repository defines an optional method for reverting soft-deletes on relationship instances:

Method Description
restoreRelationship reverts the last soft-delete that was made to a relationship
ID Description
repository-relationship-restore-performance-restoreRelationship See (2) in detailed logic below.

For every relationship type supported by the technology under test, this profile does the following (in order):

  1. Searches for instancesPerType relationship GUIDs of that type that have been soft-deleted. (This uses findRelationshipsByProperty with a condition to limit to the status DELETED only and its performance is recorded as part of the relationship search profile.)
  2. For each of these relationship GUIDs, restoreRelationship is called to revert the soft-delete and make the relationship active again.


So, for example, if the technology under test supports 50 relationship types, and the instancesPerType parameter is set to 100, then this profile will re-activate 50 (types) x 100 (instances per type) = 5000 relationships. (And it will run findRelationshipsByProperty 50 times.)
