CloudStack 4.3 API Visualization

I put together a visualization of the CloudStack API based on the public documentation.  This visualization represents the request references from basic entities to other basic entities.  The arrow direction is the direction in which the reference is made. So if an API call in the Virtual Machine section references a Network, it would appear as: Virtual Machine-> Network. I am not showing the specific API calls, I am grouping all the API calls for a section together and mapping them to other logical sections.

I had to limit the connections for some of the elements because the graph was too messy. For example, since Account, Domain and Zone are referenced by almost every element, I have only shown the outgoing connections from them and not the incoming connections.
