Types of Primary Key

In Enterprise Architect, a:

  • Simple Primary Key (single column) is defined as the attribute of a stereotyped operation
  • Complex Primary Key (several columns) is defined as the stereotyped operation itself
    For example, a column LastName might not be unique within a table, so a Primary Key is created from the LastName, FirstName and DateOfBirth columns
