Define Primary Key Name Template

Enterprise Architect enables you to customize the way Primary Keys are named by default. This is helpful if you have specific modeling conventions that stipulate how Primary Keys are documented.

By changing the Primary Key Name Template, you adjust the name that Enterprise Architect assigns to the UML Operation that represents the Primary Key.
