Property Shapes¤

Property Shapes are resources of type shacl:PropertyShape. They are used to specify constraints and UI options that need to be met in the context of a Node Shape.

The following Property Shape properties are supported:

Naming and Presentation¤

Info

In this group, presentation and naming properties are collected. Most of the properties are straight forward to use, other properties provide more complex features, such as table reports.

Name¤

This name will be shown to the user.

Used Path: shacl:name

Description¤

This text will be shown to the user in a tooltip. You can use new and blank lines for basic text structuring.

Used Path: shacl:description

Query: Table Report¤

Use this property to provide a tabular read-only report of a custom SPARQL query at the place where this property shape is used in the user interface. The following placeholder can be used in the query text of the sparql query: - refers to the main resource rendered in the starte node shape of the currently displayed node shape tree (only relevant in case of sub-shape usage) ; - refers to the resource which is rendered in the node shape where this property shape is used (maybe a sub-shape) ; - the currently used graph.

Used Path: shui:valueQuery

Query: Table Report (hide header)¤

If set to true, the report table will be rendered without header (in case you expect only a single value).

Used Path: shui:valueQueryHideHeader

If set to true, the report table will be rendered without footer (in case you expect only a single value or row).

Used Path: shui:valueQueryHideFooter

Order¤

Specifies the order of the property in the UI. Ordering is separate for each group.

Used Path: shacl:order

Group¤

Group to which the property belongs to.

Used Path: shacl:group

Show always¤

Default is false. A value of true let optional properties (min count = 0) show up by default.

Used Path: shui:showAlways

Read only¤

Default is false. A value of true means the properties are not editable by the user. Useful for displaying system properties.

Used Path: shui:readOnly

Provide Workflow Trigger¤

Integrates a workflow trigger button in order to execute workflows from or with this resource.

Used Path: shui:provideWorkflowTrigger

Vocabulary¤

Info

In this group, property paths as well cardinality restrictions are managed.

Property of¤

The node shape this property shape belongs to.

Used Path: shacl:property

Path¤

The datatype or object property used in this shape.

Used Path: shacl:path

Node kind¤

Type of the node.

Used Path: shacl:nodeKind

Min count¤

Min cardinality, 0 will show this property under optionals unless ‘Show always = true’

Used Path: shacl:minCount

Max count¤

Max cardinality

Used Path: shacl:maxCount

Datatype Property Specific¤

Info

In this group, all shape properties are managed, which only have effects on datatype properties.

Datatype¤

The datatype of the property.

Used Path: shacl:datatype

Use textarea¤

Default is false. A value of true enables multiline editing capabilities for Literals via a textarea widget.

Used Path: shui:textarea

Regex Pattern¤

A XPath regular expression (Perl like) that all literal strings need to match.

Used Path: shacl:pattern

Regex Flags¤

An optional string of flags for the regular expression pattern (e.g. ‘i’ for case-insensitive mode)

Used Path: shacl:flags

Languages allowed¤

This limits the given Literals to a list of languages. This property works only in combination with the datatype rdf:langString. Note that the expression for this property only allows for ‘2 Char ISO-639-1-Codes’ only (no sub-tags).

Used Path: shui:languageIn

Languages Unique¤

Default is false. A value of true enforces that no pair of Literals may use the same language tag.

Used Path: shacl:uniqueLang

Object Property Specific¤

Info

In this group, all shape properties are managed, which only have effects on object properties.

Class¤

Class of the connected IRI if nodeKind == sh:IRI.

Used Path: shacl:class

Query: Selectable Resources¤

This query allows for listing selectable resources in the dropdown list for this property shape.

Used Path: shui:uiQuery

Inverse Path¤

Default is false. A value of true inverts the expected / created direction of a relation.

Used Path: shui:inversePath

Deny new resources¤

A value of true disables the option to create new resources.

Used Path: shui:denyNewResources

Node shape¤

The shape of the linked resource.

Used Path: shacl:node

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

Ignore on copy¤

Disables reusing the value(s) when creating a copy of the resource.

Used Path: shui:ignoreOnCopy

Query: On insert update¤

This query is executed when a property value is added or changed.

The following placeholder can be used in the query text of the sparql query: - refers to the main resource rendered in the start node shape of the currently displayed node shape tree (only relevant in case of sub-shape usage) ; - refers to the resource which is rendered in the node shape where this property shape is used (maybe a sub-shape) ; - the currently used graph.

Used Path: shui:onInsertUpdate

Query: On delete update¤

This query is executed when a value is changed or removed.

The following placeholder can be used in the query text of the sparql query: - refers to the main resource rendered in the start node shape of the currently displayed node shape tree (only relevant in case of sub-shape usage) ; - refers to the resource which is rendered in the node shape where this property shape is used (maybe a sub-shape) ; - the currently used graph.

Used Path: shui:onDeleteUpdate

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

Provided Shapes¤

Instead of providing all possible statement annotation node shapes for the creation of new statement annotations, this property will limit the list to the selected shapes only.

Used Path: shui:provideStatementLevelMetadataShapes
