Saving Queries

You can save queries on any diagram or list view with these buttons.

  2. Save
  3. Save as
  4. Open

Save As

The "Save As" button allows you to add a new saved query. Every saved query has to be given a unique name. The names of the saved queries have to be unique within your private saved queries and they have to be unique within the public saved queries. But there is the possibility to create a private and a public saved query with the same name. In order to find saved queries quicker, you are able to add a description, which is not obligatory. Below, clicking the switch offers you to save your queries public in case you might want to share it with all iteraplan users.


The "Save" button appears whenever a saved query is loaded. After changing the configuration of the diagram or list, click on this button to save your changes.

Building Block Type

Some diagrams use more than one building block type. In this case the Saved Query overview page shows the following type:

  • Nested Cluster Diagram: Inner Building Block type, Outer Building Block type, Inner Nesting Building Block type, Building Block types at the ends of Path to inner/outer elements.
  • Information Flow Diagram: Always "Information Systems"
  • Landscape Diagram: Business Object types for Content Type, Rows, Columns.

Configure Queries


To edit the name and description of the saved query, click on the pen button on the right (7). Consider that names have to be unique.

To edit the configuration of the query, load the query by clicking on the name (4) and save your changes directly when the diagram or list is shown.


In case you wish to delete a saved query, click on the trashcan icon shown in (7).


The arrow in (4) shows that this column is sorted in ascending order. If you might want to sort it in descending order, click on the column header. With another click the column is sorted ascending again. 

Quick filter

You can filter the list by typing into the input field on the left top of the queries list (2).

Migrate Saved Queries

This button links to the page for Saved Query Migration. For documentation see Saved query migration.

Private and Public Saved Queries

You have two options to save your queries: private and public. Public queries can be seen and edited by all iteraplan users. Private queries can only be seen and edited by the user who has saved them. 

To choose between private and public, use the toggle button while saving the configuration. As a default, queries are saved privatelyIn (1) you can select whether to list private, public or all queries at once. Consider that names for saved queries have to be unique whithin a group. That means, two queries with the same name, one in your saved queries and one in the public queries list, are possible.

Links to images

For saved queries of diagram you can get code to insert images to your website. This code adds an iframe to the website where the user can see the image after he is logged in.

The code can be obtained by using the image icon shown in (7). It has the following format: 

<iframe width="1200px" height="400px" src=URLofIteraplan/#/savedQueries/73278c9a-a876-4afe-a2b1-702810306a43/SVG/>

By changing the values of width and height, the size of the element can be changed.

By replacing the suffix '/SVG/' with either '/PNG/' or '/JPEG/' you can add images in other data formats to your website.
