Viewing the graph and navigating through the relationships.

You can click on any of the entities in the graph to go to the page for that entity.

You can also click the View graph link at the bottom of the card to view a full page graph and see the component in the context of the whole system.


Adding relationships between components

If you can’t see any connections to your component you will first need to define these relationships explicitly in your component yaml files as explained here

Customize graph parameters.

In order to customize the breadth and depth of the graph on your dashboards you can click the cog icon at the top right of the page and then the spanner icon in the top right of the card.



Then you can edit the props for the card by adding the following JSON or a subset of it depending on your preferences.

  "title": "Relationship Graph",
  "kinds": [
  "relations": [
  "maxDepth": 2

If not specified, your graph will have a depth of 1 by default.
