The following relations are among the most important for the
CA Spectrum
functionality:
  • Connects_to
    The Connects_to relation is a many-to-many relation type. Connects_to forms a connection between two models. This relation establishes a connection between a port model and a device or topology model.
  • Contains
    The Contains relation is a one-to-many relation type. This relation lets a model contain other models. The Location models use the Contains relation to determine the location or device models that can be contained within the location model.
    CA Spectrum
    tests the rules for this relation when you attempt to add or copy models to the Location models.
  • HASPART
    The HASPART relation is a many-to-many relation type. HASPART establishes an association between a device model and the models that represent the components of the device. Typically, these components are the interface models of the device. However, this relation can also establish an association between a component model and its components.
  • Links_with
    The Links_with relation is one-to-many relation type. This relation is used to represent a resolved connection between two models. This relation is found typically between two-port models. Both the Link view and Live Pipes rely heavily on this relation.
  • Manages
    The Manages relation is a one-to-many relation type. This relation forms an association between an application model and the device model that is running it. The Manages relation can also form an association between an element management system model and the element models of this system.
  • Provides
    The Provides relation is a one-to-many relation type. This relation identifies which applications provide which subapplications. The Provides relation can also be used to determine which application provided a particular subapplication.
