Pattern Definitions node

A Pattern Definitions node is a container for all the Pattern Define nodes in a Pattern Module. Currently Pattern Definitions are only used in the context of SQL Discovery and Integration.

Pattern Definitions node lifecycle

The following section describes the scenarios in which a Pattern Definitions node is created, updated or removed.

Creation

Pattern Definitions nodes are created as a result of activating a Pattern Module that contains a definitions block. As such the creation of Pattern Definitions nodes is driven by the management of Patterns. See Knowledge management for details.

Update

Pattern Definitions nodes are never updated as they are defined in Pattern Modules and the act of editing a Pattern Module creates a new instance.

Removal

Pattern Definitions nodes are removed when their associated Pattern Modules are destroyed.
