Create Custom Views

Create custom viewpoints of an architecture model

System models tend to be large and complex. You can create a custom subset of components from architecture models by filtering model elements based on criteria such as stereotypes, properties, and requirement links. This custom subset is called an architecture view and is a simplified way of working with complex systems. You can use views to focus on certain parts of the architectural design and create operational, functional, or physical views for analysis.

Use queries to define custom viewpoints on the architecture model. View filters rely on the constraints defined by queries. Define queries programmatically.

Define architecture views and hierarchical views in the Architecture Views Gallery. Hierarchical views show the same set of components in tree form.

Display Component Hierarchy Using Hierarchy Views

This example shows how to use hierarchy views to visualize component hierarchy as a tree diagram with component stereotypes, stereotype properties, and the reference type a component instantiates.
