Create Reference Data Tagged Values

To create your own Tagged Value based on a predefined Reference Data Tagged Value Type, follow the steps below:

  1. Select the Settings | UML menu option. The UML Types dialog displays; select the Tagged Value Types tab.
  2. In the Tag field type an appropriate Tagged Value name.
  3. In the Description field type a description of the purpose of the Tagged Value, if required.
  4. In the Detail field copy-and-paste or type the syntax of the predefined Reference Data Tagged Value Type. In the example above, the Tagged Value returns the values for all of the Authors in the Enterprise Architect model.
    This enables you to assign any of the previously defined Authors to a model feature (model features that can have Tagged Values applied to them are detailed in the Model Elements and Features with Tagged Values topic.


If the values in the reference data are changed after the Tagged Value Type is created, Enterprise Architect must be reloaded in order to reflect the changes in the Tagged Value Type.
