Managing Tagged Values

To use the THREATGET Analysis in Enterprise Architect, you have to use the THREATGET Toolbox to model the system. This Toolbox provides your defined Elements, Assets, Connectors and Boundaries. It is also possible to define Tagged Values for elements, assets, and connectors. A Tagged Value can be seen as an attribute/property of an element, asset, or connector. A Tagged Value is a key-value relationship and describes a single property. The user can define these Tagged Values within the ThreatGet web interface and then add them to elements, assets, and connectors to model your system.

An example of this would be defining a Tagged Value that describes which protocol a connector uses.

Tag = protocol

Values = HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP .....

Create a new Tagged Value

To create a new tagged value, you first have to switch to the correct overview. Please click on ToolBox in the Navigation bar. Then select Tagged Values as shown below.

Now we will create a new taggedvalue. To do this, please click on the blue + on the top right corner. Please enter a name and a description first. The description is unnecessary, but we always recommend including one to avoid conflicting in meaning with other tagged values. You create all tagged values with the default namespace (in the standard installation called "USER"). You can, however, select a different namespace. The items created by AIT have the "AIT" namespace.

As you can already see, a value with the name undefined has already been automatically assigned. A tagged value must always have at least one value. Furthermore, it is also automatically the Default value as you can see from the Default field. We want to assign additional values (e.g., HTTP,HTTPS, SMTP) as discussed earlier. To do this, please enter the desired value in the New Value field. Then click the ADD button on the right to add the value.

All defined except the current Default VALUE can also be deleted again. To delete a value, click on the X in the Actions column of the table. It is also possible to set a different Default Value for the tagged value. To change the Default Value, click on the Checkbox in the Default column of the table.

As you can see, the Default Value also changes in the upper field. To save your newly defined tagged value, please click on the button with the Disk symbol on the top right corner.

Save button

You can also cancel the creation of the new tagged value by clicking on the X on the top right corner.

Delete button

You can also select the Circular Arrow to undo any changes.

Undo button

Search for a defined Tagged Value

Since the number of tagged values can increase very quickly, you can also search for a particular one. To do this, you can simply enter part of the name or description in the search field.

All the tagged values matching the search will then be listed.
