I am not able to connect all allowed relationships to my AND or OR junctions in ArchiMate. I get the message "Invalid target type for this connector type.".
In the Archimate 3 reference, these relationships are allowed. See https://pubs.opengroup.org/architecture/archimate3-doc/chap05.html

Could you please look into that?

Thanks and regards,
Timo

EA 14 didn't have any of the "derived" ArchiMate relationships allowed in the metamodel. You can still turn off strict connector syntax in the options and create them anyway.

EA 15 directly implements the relationship tables in the spec, but I'd recommend the latest version for handling links to Junctions. We only just added smarts to enforce legality of the links into and out of Junctions.
