Node Shapes¤

Node Shapes are resources of type shacl:NodeShape. They can be used to validate resources as well as to define custom forms for presenting and editing resources of a specific type.

This page lists all supported properties to describe node shapes.

Naming and Presentation¤

Info

In this group, presentation and naming properties are collected. Most of the properties are straight forward to use.

Name¤

The name of the node is presented to the user only when he needs to distinguish between different shapes for the same resource.

Used Path: shacl:name

Description¤

The node description should provide context information for the user when creating a new resource based on this node.

Used Path: rdfs:comment

This property links the node shape to a SPARQL 1.1 Query in order to provide a sophisticated user navigation list query e.g. to add specific additional columns. The query should use as a placeholder for the FROM section. Additionally, can be used to access the graph in the FROM section.

Used Path: shui:navigationListQuery

Depiction Image¤

This property links a node shape to an image in order to use this image when showing resources based on this node shape somewhere.

Used Path: http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/depiction

Vocabulary¤

Info

In this group, the affected vocabulary classes as well as the used property shapes are managed.

Property Shapes¤

The used property shapes on this node. Please note that this is NOT a link to a datatype or object property but to a SHACL property shape.

Used Path: shacl:property

Target class¤

Class this NodeShape applies to. This is a direct link to a class resource from a vocabulary.

Used Path: shacl:targetClass

Processing¤

Info

In this group, all shape properties are managed, have an effect on how new or existing resources are processed or created.

URI template¤

A compact sequence of characters for describing a range of URIs through variable expansion.

Used Path: shui:uriTemplate

On update update¤

A query which is executed when this nodeshape is submitted. The query should be saved in the same graph as the shape (or imported). The query can use these placeholders: - the resource currently shown with the node shape of this property shape, - the currently used graph.

Used Path: shui:onUpdateUpdate

Target Graph Template¤

Graph templates can be used to enforce writing statement in specific graphs rather than into the selected graph. Graph templates can be added to node and property shapes. A template on a property shape is used only for overwriting a template on a node shape (without a node shape graph template, they do not have an effect).

Used Path: shui:targetGraphTemplate

Statement Annotation¤

Info

Statement Annotations provide a way to express knowledge about statements. This group is dedicated to properties which configure the Statement Annotation feature.

Enable¤

A value of true enables visualisation and management capabilities of statement annotations (reification) for all statements which are shown via this shape.

Used Path: shui:enableStatementLevelMetadata

Provide as Shape¤

A value of true enables this node shape to be applied as statement annotation (reification).

Used Path: shui:isApplicableAsStatementLevelMetadata
