The resource relationship map outlines the resources available in Cortex with the corresponding data fields, links, and relationships to other resources. This diagram is useful when you are first learning Cortex as it provides you with a mental image of a resource and where it fits in the overall mapping.
To use this diagram, click on the link provided. The map opens in a new tab or browser window. Expand a single node or resource as far as you need for understanding. We recommend that you open resources one step at a time, going as deep into the given resource as required. This map becomes most useful for developing an understanding when used in conjunction with:
- Cortex Studio - Web application that interacts with Cortex and returns JSON response.
- Resource Reference Guide - API documentation that provides the details about each resource.
The diagram is in a "mind map" format. Resources listed on the left side are those frequently referenced by the resources listed on the right side. We recommend that you review the resources by mimicking the action normally done on an eCommerce site, such as using the resources listed on the right side. The following shows the visual codes of the nodes to help you when referring to the diagram:
