I have created an Enterprise Wiki on SharePoint Online to store technical documentation.

I'd like to try and use it as a CMDB (Configuration Management Database), which shows the relationship between different technical components (e.g. server and switch). Each component is a page in this wiki.

Is it possible to show a diagram of which pages link to others? Using incoming and outgoing links? So when someone creates a new page and links to another it shows the relationship.

Something like this:

You could tie this into the Wiki Categories and drive it through a Term set (Managed Metadata Service). This is a common use case for Knowledge Repositories using Enterprise Wiki.

  • Interesting idea, all the pages are tagged so this could work. I can't quite work out how I would show that list as a diagram? – Chris Taverner Jul 18 '17 at 20:19
  • I know you are looking for a quick, maybe OOTB way but I would just read the term set mapping using JSOM (habaneroconsulting.com/insights/…) and then map it to my custom view model (try the different JS based tree view libraries available). Your implementation would not be a full fledged tree view as you just need the immediate successor and precursor, i guess. – Ransher Singh Jul 18 '17 at 20:28
  • Thank Ransher, really helpful :) – Chris Taverner Jul 18 '17 at 20:30

There are a variety of tools that can create visual site maps. Visio has this capability, as well as a variety of 3rd party tools.
