No Magic Inc is delighted to announce yet another release of Cameo CSV Import, which is a MagicDraw plugin that will read values in a comma separated values (CSV) file and create model elements, diagrams and relationships from that data.
CSV Import, by default, uses the name of an element to find its owner.
However, this version onwards, the owner can also be referred to by its Id property, so users can now form a hierarchy of elements by referring to the Id of the parent element instead of its name.
This functionality is enabled when importing SysML objects or any element type with an Id tag, like a requirement, for example, and the Find owner By the "Id" tag checkbox will be automatically displayed on the CSV import wizard's mapping step.
If the Find owner by the Id tag checkbox is checked, CSV Import plugin will find the owner of an element using its Id property. If the Find owner by the Id tag checkbox is unchecked, CSV Import plugin will find the owner of an element using its name property. This is the default.
Figure 1 shows the CSV Import Plugin wizard interface mapping screen. The Find owner by the "Id" tag checkbox is on top right.
Figure 2 shows the results of the import. A hierarchy of elements can be imported.
