Ability to see delete rules between reference attributes (foreign keys) in an entity diagram

Backend
New

The idea is to have a bigger picture of the delete rules of reference attributes between entities, the entity diagram would be a good place for this feature. I think this would be pretty useful while designing a data model for a module or while making changes to an existing one. Avoiding, for example, module upgrade errors triggered by multiple cascading paths because you missed something while changing delete rules.

Maybe add a letter for the delete rule in front of each reference attribute:

P (Protect)

D (Delete)

I (Ignore)

Entity Diagram already offers a way to distinguish Delete Rules by colour code:


Protect (dark grey):

Ignore (light grey):

Delete (red):

Nevertheless, I agree that that should be a more clear manner to highlight these differences.
