Object Type Universe

The Object Type Universe graph helps you visualize how all the object types in your org are associated with one another through relationships.

You can reveal the name of an object type by hovering your cursor over the monogram. The gray arrows indicate which object type the relationship is saved to. For example, in the screenshot below, the Incident object type is associated with the Vehicle object type through a “Vehicles Involved” relationship.
