InformationFlows
« on: June 10, 2008, 09:47:49 pm »
I have a problem: I would like to get a list of all InformationFlows to/from a specific SysML block in my model, and the information item(s) conveyed on each of them. (Advanced>Information items conveyed...)

I tried the 'Generate RTF Documentation', and by checking the Connector box (under Elements), I can print e.g. the Source and Target for each InformationFlow, but I can't find a way to print the information item that I have specified for each InformationFlow...?

I then tried the 'Model search', but didn't find a way to use the Query builder to do what I wanted, so I then tried to make a custom SQL filter. I manage to filter out all InformationFlows by specifying

SELECT * from t_connector WHERE Connector_Type = 'InformationFlow'

but now I still don't know how to get the information item(s) for each flow.
Help is appreciated... :'(

Hey there, I'm having the same problem.  I really need to pull out the conveyed information items into a report.  I can't find them in any of the tables I've looked into.

The alternative is to list them in the Notes section but that defeats the benefits of reuse.

Hopefully someone will have the answer.

Cheers
Anthony

Folks

Check out Midnight's third comment in this thread:

Might be onto something.  I'm going to investigate further as soon as time allows.

Cheers!
