An entity may have hundreds, if not thousands, of relationships. In such circumstances, you may have a little difficulty in analyzing and understanding the graph because of the sheer number of nodes and the connections between them.

You may want to view only a particular set of data in the graph, for example, only employees associated with your organization. You can filter the details in your Graph perspective based on the entity type or relationship type. You can also search for a profile in the list of relationships displayed.

  1. In the Hub, select your profile and then select Profile > Graph. The Graph Perspective is displayed.
  2. In the Node details toolbar on the right, click Relationship. The Relationships pane is displayed.
