Getting Started Help Page

Getting acquainted with a new platform can be overwhelming or even intimidating. The "Getting Started" section in Dragon1 is focused on learning you the basics for the most common tasks on the platform.

Common Tasks

Some of the most common tasks are:

  • Setup an initial repository and enter some data
  • Build a model, view or diagram
  • Compare models and diagrams
  • Manage a Project
  • Create a Target Architecture
  • Build reports
  • Working together on concepts, designs, solutions, scenarios, road maps, blueprints, landscapes and prototypes
  • Make content interactive or publish content in a channel
  • Have other people review and comment on your private content
  • Manage tasks and send messages
  • Setup a profile and Portfolio, link your content or write a blog

In the Help System we will explain in detail how these tasks can be executed by you.

Other Tasks

Besides building diagrams, there are many more things you can do on the Dragon1 platform. But these are more complex tasks. These tasks are explained as well on the help pages, but these are not the first things you should do to get started.

Dragon1 Web Applications and Features

Dragon1 is a large and complex suite of web applications tailored for creating and managing your projects, models, views and diagrams. In the help section "Applications" and "Features" we guide you through the various web applications and features.

Getting Started

In the Getting Started area we focus on how to build a diagram in the Visual Designer. This will be your first task. You will learn how to build a model, create a view as a filter on top of it, and how to draw or generate a view on a visualization canvas.

And of course we will address the prerequisites (via the Dragon1 Playground*) in order to be able to log in and to know the basic functionality of the software.

*The Playground is a pre-populated public cabinet with example models, views and diagrams. In the Playground, you can experiment safely without destroying the data as the changes you make are not saved.

Here is an overview of the tutorials on the Dragon1 Help System. The tutorials are from the field of work 'Enterprise Architecture'.

You can also getting started by following the on-line Step-by-Step guide or by downloading the PDF version of the guide.
