Viewing Node Locations

The Locations tab identifies all locations of a selected node in a hierarchy viewpoint. Multiple locations for the same node can be visualized together and you can navigate to any location where a node exists. Locations are grouped by parent and can be viewed in a collapsed or expanded format. Property values for each location can be displayed to determine similarities or differences across locations.

For shared nodes that exist in multiple locations in a hierarchy viewpoint, the Locations tab provides an easy way to:

  • Identify all of the locations - including the full ancestry of the node

  • Navigate to any of the locations to browse or modify data

  • Visually compare properties for the node in different locations


    The properties that display in the Locations tab are configured in the viewpoint inspector. For more information, see Configuring Locations Tab Properties.


Even if a node doesn't exist in multiple locations, the Locations tab provides a list of ancestors for the node. Expand the ancestry list to navigate to any of the node's ancestors.

To view node locations:

  1. Open a view and select a hierarchy viewpoint.

  2. Expand a hierarchy and select a node.

  3. Click the Locations tab.

  4. Do any of the following to navigate in the Locations tab:
    • Click the expand button to see the node's ancestry.

    • In the expanded view, click any of the node's ancestors to navigate to that node.

    • Click the navigate button to go to a different location of the node in the viewpoint.


    In the collapsed view, you can navigate to the node only. You cannot navigate to a node's ancestor from the collapsed view. In the expanded view, you can navigate to the node or you can navigate directly to an ancestor of the node.
