The Entity Relation Diagram Creator tool allows user to build a visual representation of the interactions between entities in a CDS environment



The Entity Relation Diagram Creator enables users to create a visual representation of the relations between several entities.


Entities can be chosen either from a solution or from the list of all entities. Once entities have been selected, users can choose among five choices to display – or not – the fields: All fields, No fields, Key fields only, Custom fields from the publisher of the solution, and all custom fields.

Once the diagram has been rendered, entities can be edited directly from there. Each box can be moved around or even completely removed, entities names can be changed manually, the list of fields can be collapsed or not, etc…

There are also other customizations available, regarding the entities and the relationships between them.



The diagrams generated can then be saved and re-opened later from the tool, thanks to the ERD file format used here (ERD = Entity Relation Diagram).

The tool can create an image directly. The available formats are BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, and EMF.

Below is a documentation from the author of the tool:






Hello Sidhartha,

As far as I know, it's not possible to have an intergration /sync with any XrmToolBox.

Unfortunately, this plugin isn't open source, so I'm afraid you need another tool for your requirements.
