Add Quick Linker Definition To Profile

When you have set up your Profile Quick Linker definitions as a CSV file, you can incorporate them into the Profile. To do this, you copy the file contents into the Linked Document of a Document Artifact element that exists in the same diagram as the Stereotype elements of the Profile.

Continue working on the Profile until it is complete, and save it.

The QuickLink definitions are saved with the Profile and are processed and applied when the Profile is imported (within its MDG Technology) into another model.

A technology can contain a number of Profiles and therefore have a number of Quick Link definitions, one for each Profile.
