Managing Namespaces

THREATGET Namespaces can be added to Elements, Connectors, Assets, Interfaces, Boundaries and Tagged Values inside of the THREATGET Toolbox. THREATGET Namespaces can also be added to Rules inside of the Rule Editor, as well as to Capabilities.

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

Create a new Namespace

To create a new Namespace, you first have to switch to the correct overview. Select the Namespace from the admin button.

On the left side, the already created Namespaces are presented. You can view them by clicking one of them. You can also edit the Namespace if you created it. The Default activated namespace inside of the database is the User namespace, as you can see on the left side. This one cannot be deleted or edited. To create a new namespace, please click on the + button on the right upper corner. Then enter a Name for the Namespace, please note that the name must be unique. The description of a namespace should be meaningful to avoid accidentally creating copies.

After entering the name and description, save your newly defined Namespace by clicking on the button with the disk on the top right corner.

Save button

If you have made changes, that you want to undo, click on the revert button next to the save button in the top right corner.

Revert button

You are also able to search for certain namespaces inside the Search Bar above. The search checks the content of the name and the descriptions.

Default Namespace

To modify the default activated namespace, select the namespace you want to use as the default. After that, click Make default namespace for new elements and rules.

Delete a Namespace

To delete a specific Namespace, please select it and click the Cross button on the right upper corner.

Delete button

This is only possible if you created it and the namespace is not the default activated one. If there are elements, tagged values or rules which contain this Namespace, a Dialog will display their names for your information. Deletion will lead to a reassignment of the namespace to the currently set default.
