Generate StateMachine Diagram

When you create a scenario on an element and then generate a StateMachine diagram, a StateMachine is created as a child of the selected element to act as a container for the diagram.

  • Each value in the 'State' column is modeled as a State
  • The scenario steps become the Transition connectors between the States
  • The values of the 'Uses' and 'Results' columns are added as Tagged Values of the Transition connectors
