I am looking for a datamodel of the universal directory

As it says in the subject area. I looked for a clear date model that visualises the relationships between universal directory objects. But I could not find it. 

We need this to determine the best technical implementation of OKTA for our company viewed from the data relation perspective. 

I mean by that. We are researching the best way to translate and implement the functions of our employees, the departments they work for and their non-related roles (that is, roles those employees have that are not related to their function nor their department) to their permissions on applications, services and apps.

we are not searching for the implementation itself ! Because that is what we found here already. We need an overview on the data objects in a relational way

I have already read al this documentation. For the discussion on hand I need a more visual representation of how the translation process of the Employee Information (including permission related data like department, function, roles) can be implemented without any kind of coding examples.

This is because the discussion will be performed with bright employees with a thourough knowledge of their processes, but whom do not have enough technical skills to see through the examples given.

When I read through the API documentation there is a clear concept to detect between the objects needed, like for instance groups, rules and linked objects. But when I would create diagrams based on reverse engineering from what I can find in that documentation, my reinterpretation could be different from what is meant.

Maybe, In short, it is to textual for my audience.
