I couldn't find any predefined structure type for tagged values, to be able to create a multiple choice list in Enterprise Architect. For example, in my projects, I want to have a tagged value which is a list of different product variants names. I want to choose for each requirement, which variants are relevant with this requirement, at the requirement elicitation and analysis stage. I could not find any way to create such multiple choice list as a tagged value.

For example, it should be looking like follows.


Thanks if anybody has clue if it is possible. I request Sparx to create such feature, if it is currently not available.

B.R.,
Shishir

Hi Shisir,

By all means, check the reference provided by VKN, BUT be warned!  See: Re: Adding checklist tagged value to profile stereotype

Checklists are NOT Multi-selection Lists.

Hello VKS,
thanks for the reply. I have tried all the methods on that page. It does not describe about multiselection. I somehow now sure, EA did not consider multiselection list till now. That's pity.

Hello Paolo,
yes, I know that. Checklist is some weird concept, which a Requirement Engineer is perhaps never going to use in Requirement Management. Anyways, I expected, EA should consider Multiselect List, which can be used to select multiple variants, related with the same requirement or any other element, in specification view. I suggest EA to implement this feature, as it is so important and basic one.
