If have approached the Smart Data Models Program (SDM) for the first time and you want to become a contributor there are some technical concepts that you need to know about the elements compiled at SDM.
Once checked this presentation maybe you want to review the contribution manual
After growing in options and service, it was necessary to update the main menu (not only to make it more legible), but also to make it more natural.
Explore the tools section where all the available services are listed together
Documentation contains everything related to the documentation generated at the SDM and that can be necessary for several tasks
About include mostly the same elements (the starting point and FAQs)
Search remains the same because is one of the most used resources
Community for the interconnection between users and contributors.
New data model request to learn how to start
Every data model in the Smart Data Models program can be mapped with external ontologies and there is a service on the main menu to achieve that.
See main menu -> @context -> generate an external @context
After the publication of data models of CPSV-AP now it is possible to map with their URI thanks to the mapping file.
There is a new service for the creation of schema of a data model when the input is a csv payload.
It is available in the home -> Draft a data model -> Create a data model from csv payload
If you detect any issue or you want to make a suggestion, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
test it here
If you want to access a slide with the main parameters for the Smart Data Models Program you can access it through the Main menu -> About -> Statistics
Besides of the parameters updated every hour some slides containing the last parameters o the community like the # of terms, the linked pages, etc.
This is the new content added
We used to have a weekly meeting on Mondays. But this was not very flexible for the actual users. So we have done two things
- Change the meeting from weekly to monthly (and the content of the meeting will be to report but to provide support)
- Enable a new service for allocation of a specific slot of support. You can book your own 30 minutes support slot.
Let’s enjoy ourselves.
We are going to replace the live support session on Mondays by a more flexible calendar service where you can book a 30 min slot for getting support on your data model design or use.
Always available in the upper part of the page.
In our Twitter account @smartdatamodels now it will be twit twice a day (9:00 and 15:00) a link with the chosen data model of the day. Follow
The creation of a data model requires two mandatory files, one example and a JSON schema containing the definitions and data types of the elements in the entity.
However, the JSON schema creation could be somehow demanding.
The new tool opens the door for people with only basic knowledge of JSON (every FIWARE user should be proficient in it).
If you have an entity defined in your system just retrieve it in key values format and paste it in this form (available at Menu -> Draft a data model -> Generate your schema out of your payload.
It will return a new page with a raw version of a JSON schema. What you have to check for a final submission?
1.- The title and description of the overall schema
2.- The id address of the schema (you’d need the subject to locate it)
3.- If you want to include any tags
4.- Remove those definitions that does not match your data model and include the missing ones.
so you would be able to make a PR with this JSON schema and your example according to the contribution manual.
