Security Classification for Table Columns
« on: May 11, 2018, 08:14:02 am »
Hello.

I trying to understand the best approach to include a security classification (restricted, confidential, public, etc.) to table columns.
As far I know, tagged values are not available for column stereotype.

Is there any suggestion? Anyone with a similar question?

regards,
Mario

You can add tagged values to columns, whilst the dialog doesn't show tags, you can select the attribute in diagram and use the 'Tagged Values' window to add  TVs.

Hi Nizam,

I trying to do this under table stereotype, and I don't see where I can do this. Images attached.

I would like to create a global rule to apply by default to a column when they are created.

You might be able to redefine the column stereotype to add a tagged value. Follow the instructions on this page:

http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/14.0/modeling_tools/redefine_ster_other_prof.html

The stereotype you are trying to redefine is "EAUML::column". My main worry is that while it works with other stereotyped elements, I haven't tried it with stereotyped attributes and they have a slightly different mechanism internally. If it doesn't work, then I'm afraid you will just have to add the tagged values manually, as suggested above.

1. to add TVs to <<column>> columns in <<table>> Tables, you can Try using the 'Tagged Values' (dockable) window and just select the column in the

2. to standardize it you  can use the extension mechanism as KP suggested. Template Packages could be used too, but it looks like its working for Tables (elements) and not attributes.
