Collaboration

  • Model sharing
    Share database models by simply providing teammember’s email and clicking a button. You can share model at three different access levels: Owner, Editor and Viewer. Access levels can be changed at any time.
  • Working on a model at the same time
    Everyone who shares a model may open it at the same time. When the model is opened for editing for one person, it is read-only for others. Everyone can see changes in the model just after an autosave.
  • Public link to the model
    If you need to share model with your customers or partners they may not be interested in having an account in Vertabelo. In this situation, you can create the public link to your model and send it via e-mail.

Reverse Engineering

  • Import an existing database
    You can import an existing database into Vertabelo using a simple command-line tool that you can download from our website.
  • Safety
    The tool is provided as a command-line Java application which you run on your computer. You don't give us your database credentials nor do we make a connection to your database.
  • Automatic diagram layout
    The Reverse Engineering tool lays out the database diagram automatically, so you'll have to manually adjust your diagram in Vertabelo. We're working on a more sophisticated algorithm for a future release.

SQL generation

At any time you can generate an SQL script that:

  • creates all elements in your database
  • removes all elements from your database
  • creates or removes only selected elements – constraints for example

Vertabelo checks your model before SQL script generation and notifies you of any errors or warnings. You have the flexibility to ignore the warnings and generate the SQL anyway or go back and correct the model.

Smooth workflow

  • Instant save
    The database model you are working on is saved automatically several times a minute. If someone has the model open in read-only mode they can see the changes you made in the last minute.
  • Live validation
    Vertabelo validates your model all the time and gives you hints on how to improve it. Every error, warning or tip is flagged by a dedicated icon that you can see on the tree representing the model structure.
  • SQL preview
    At any moment you can see a preview of the SQL that will be generated for a selected element. Just click on the SQL preview button on the properties panel.

Friendly UI

  • Fast switch between models
    You can quickly switch between models without leaving designarea. Models are automatically saved and loaded. In conjunction withthe copy-paste function, you can reuse previous diagram fragments.
  • Visual search
    Start to type in the search field and Vertabelo gives you a list of matching elements and colorizes them on the diagram and navigation tree. You can select an element in the list and it will be highlighted.
  • Perfect zoom
    You can choose from five predefined well-tuned zoom settings or just use the mouse wheel to zoom in/out precisely. Mouse wheel zoom is correlated to mouse position to boost your control.

Model navigation

  • Fast navigation
    To speed up navigation over a large model, you can use the fast navigation component. It's a map of the model which allows you to move quickly from one part of model to another.
  • Find in diagram
    Find an element in the navigation tree and click find in diagram. The element you searched for is highlighted and the diagram view will be refocused to center on that element.
  • Subject areas
    Subject areas are named and represented by a smart rectangles. They indentify the tables, views, references and notes contained within.

Managing models

  • Versioning models
    Vertabelo keeps track of the versions of your database model in a linear way. At any moment you can preview an old version and restore it. You can also give tag names to particular versions.
  • Cloning models
    With one click you can create a new model from the current model or its older version. This option is also helpful if you want to reflect branches in a project.
  • XML export/import
    You can export a database model or its particular version to an XML file. A Vertabelo model in XML has a clear and easy to read structure. You can also change a model in an XML file and import it into Vertabelo.
