Visual representation of hybris data model (items.xml)

  • Features:
    • Processing all/selected hybris Types of the all/selected hybris Extensions
    • Detailization control: some/all attributes on/off
    • Enabling/disabling showing many-to-many relations
  • Architecture:
    • implemented as regular hybris addon (localextension.xml). No Update is required.
    • Generates graphviz script (“dot” language, digraph). The extension uses Graphviz to convert the diagram into PNG. Graphviz is not required, but highly recommended. In case of the no-graphviz configuration you will need to use online graphviz processors.
  • Screenshots:

    Great job, it’s really important to have a big picture of the structure of the database, I would be most grateful if you could provide me this version.


    1. Hybris doesn’t work with the database directly. The ERD would be too huge and it would have too many links for one big picture


  4. Hi Rauf,

    Is it beta version is avaiable now? Please share the links

    Many Thanks,

    1. The PoC is available publicly, the full featured script is not, unfortunately.
