Scenario Types

In the Scenario definitions for an element each scenario is of a specific type, which you define in the 'Type' field on the 'Scenario' page of the 'Properties' dialog. You can select the appropriate value from a drop-down list, which initially contains the system values:

  • Exception
  • Alternate and
  • Basic Path

You can add to or replace any of these system types with your own customized values.
