Using a graph template

A template is a graph with predefined nodes and links that can serve as a starting point when creating a new graph. For more information about nodes, see Nodes in Acquia Journey.

Creating a graph from a template

To create a new graph from an existing template, complete the following actions:

  1. On the Home Screen, identify the project that you want to customize.

  2. In the project’s tile, click the Project Editor icon Project Editor icon.

  3. Click the Action menu icon Action menu icon in the top left of the screen.

  4. Click Create New.

  5. In the Custom Graph Templates section, click a graph template to select it.

  6. In the Name field, enter a name for your graph.

  7. Click Create New Item at the bottom of the page to create your graph.

    If your project includes any graphs, nodes, or adaptors with identical names to those provided by the graph template, creating the new graph will fail. You must ensure any existing graphs, nodes, and adaptors do not conflict with those in the graph template you selected.

  8. Make any changes you need to the graph as you would normally.

Sharing a graph template

To share a graph as a template within your organization, complete the following actions:

  1. On the Home Screen, identify the project you want to customize.
  2. In the project’s tile, click the Project Editor icon Project Editor icon.
  3. Click the Action menu icon Action menu icon in the top left of the screen, and then click Share Graph.
  4. Enter a Name for your graph template.
  5. Click on one or more graphs in the Graphs section to include in your graph template. You must select at least one graph. A graph is selected if its row background has changed.
  6. Click Convert to Template to create your graph template.

Your graph template will appear in the previously described Custom Graph Templates section. Any adaptors and nodes associated with your selected templates will be included in the graph template package.
