How do I publish or export traceability links?

For completeness, I’ll outline what I’m trying to do.

In my model I make extensive use of constrained list of values that are all physically stored in a common set of tables i.e. we don’t use DB table constraints. Each list is defined by a Domain or Scheme name, also stored in the common tables. The request is to map and track which Scheme name constrains which table/column. Difficult to do since this way of modelling means I trying to map data to meta data.

I hit on the following idea: I defined a set of subtypes (in LDM only) for the “Domain” entity in the name of each known Domain list. E.g. one for Language, one for Gender, etc. It produces a nice diagram of the scope of Domain lists that need to be managed. I then added a Traceability Link to the PDM table/column it constrains. Now the problem is that I can’t seem to find any way export this for anyone to see the traceability links. I need to be able to publish all the traceability links for the whole set of entities. Using the “Export to Excel” one Entity at a time is not practical. How am I going to do that?

You could try this, Jane:

  • give your domain entities a stereotype of <<Domain>>, perhaps put them into a separate package
  • add an extended attribute on table and column, which licks to a single entity with that stereotype

Now the <<Domain>> entity can be viewed as a standard property on your table or column - no need for traceability links

You can try creating a list report.
