Open Relationship Matrix

If you want to quickly create relationships on the elements in your Specification Package, or review the relationships that already exist, you can do so very easily using the Relationship Matrix. By opening the Relationship Matrix from within the Specification Manager, you can use the parameters already set in the Specification Manager to automatically configure the Relationship Matrix.

Notes

  • In the Corporate and extended editions of Enterprise Architect, a User Security system can be applied that restricts or enables access to a range of operations and functions; if you cannot access a function in the Specification Manager, check with your System Administrator or Security Administrator to see if you have access permissions to work with that function
