ArchiMate 3 and Aggregation/Composition nesting
« on: November 14, 2017, 06:04:46 pm »
Hi!
I have noticed an issue With some elements in the ArchiMate 3 MDG when using Aggregation\Composition and Nesting. In some elements (Application Component) when putting one element inside the other the relationship should hide but it doesn't. Trying the same With elements in Stretagy or Motivation seems to work. The relationship hides when the elements are nested.

I can't speak much for Archimate, but this looks like you should send a bug report.

I'm pretty sure I've noticed the same bug myself with the business layer, and had a recollection it all works fine in Archimate 2.  I haven't had a chance to do some testing and log a bug report though.

In the version I'm using, which is 13.0.1310, I think this has been fixed. But in reality all structural relations in ArchiMate can be nested so it would be helpful if EA managed the nesting/hiding for these too.

(I'm hoping EA 13.5 has fixed a number of ArchiMate related gremlins, but they are not mentioned in the release notes, so I'm not that confident.)
