Relationship Re-Identify Profile¶
The performance of programmatically changing the GUID of an existing relationship instance.
The Open Metadata Repository Services (OMRS) interface for a metadata repository defines an optional method for changing the GUID of relationship instances:
||changes the GUID of an existing relationship|
||See (2) in detailed logic below.|
For every relationship type supported by the technology under test, this profile does the following (in order):
- Searches for
instancesPerTypehomed relationship GUIDs of that type. (This uses
findRelationshipsByPropertywith a condition on
metadataCollectionIdand its performance is recorded as part of the relationship search profile.)
- For each of these relationship GUIDs,
reIdentifyRelationshipis called to change its GUID to a new random GUID.
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-identify 50 (types) x 100 (instances per type) = 5000 relationships. (And it will run
findRelationshipsByProperty 50 times.)
