Define Multiple-Stereotype Level

An element can have more than one stereotype applied to it. You can define the level to which multiple stereotypes can be applied, by creating the _strictness special attribute in the defining Stereotype element. The type of the attribute is StereotypeStrictnessKind, with one of four values in the 'Initial Value' field:

  • profile, which states that an element of this type cannot be given more than one stereotype from the same Profile
  • technology, which states that an element of this type cannot be given more than one stereotype from the same technology
  • all, which states that an element of this type cannot have multiple stereotypes at all, or
  • none, which is the default behavior and states that there are no restrictions on the use of multiple stereotypes

This example is from SysML and shows that a «flowPort» cannot have any other stereotype applied to it.
