Calculated Relationships

Calculated relationships are defined by one or more triplets. Each triplet is defined by the following components:

  • One source CI type

  • One target CI type

  • A physical relationship type (for example, Containment) that links the two CI types

  • The required direction. The direction can be identical to or opposite from the direction of the physical relationship between the source and target CIs.

Since calculated relationships are defined by physical relationships from within the class model, their lifetime is determined by the lifetime of the physical relationships. When the physical relationship in the class model is removed, the corresponding calculated relationship is removed from all view results as well.

Note If you create a new CI type or relationship in the CI Type Manager, you need to define the required triplets.
