Managing THREATGET Namespaces

THREATGET Namespaces can be added to Elements, Connectors, Boundaries and Namespaceged Values inside of the THREATGET Toolbox.

THREATGET Namespaces can also be added to Rules inside of the Rule Editor.

These namespaces are there to group rules, elements and tagged values. Elements, tagged values and rules can only be defined once with the same name within a namespace.
