UAF 1.2 Support (Technology Preview)

In 2021x Refresh 2, the UAF 1.2 support is introduced as a technology preview.

What is implemented for this release:

  • UAF 1.2 Profile support, however, it is supported only in the UAF framework
  • Migration from UAF 1.1 to UAF 1.2
  • UAF Grid and Metamodel Improvements:
    • Architecture Management Domain
    • Improvements in Strategic and Services Domains (clarify semantics, add new concepts, improve exposition)

ArchiMate Model Import (Technology Preview)

In this version, we continued working on the import of the ArchiMate model from the open exchange file into the UAF project. The imported element mapping is still only partial, but more mapping options were implemented. The mapping of ArchiMate 3.1 to UAF 1.1 approach is based on the NATO Architecture Framework. Learn more >>>
