Import from DDL

Kick-start your database diagram documentation by importing a DDL (Data Definition Language) script of your schema. The importer works for all supported DBMS (MySQL, PgSQL, and SQL Server), and will parse any "CREATE TABLE" statements to create the associated tables, columns, and foreign key relationships.

Importing your DDL

  1. To start the import process, in your diagram editor, simply click on "File" in the dropdown, then "Import".

  2. Select a DDL file to upload

  3. Click on "Import diagram" to start the process

  4. Import complete! Review the logs to see if any manual work is required.
