Archimate Diagram

This is only a proposal and subject to change.

You are very welcome to create a new discussion on this future syntax. Your feedbacks, ideas and suggestions help us to find the right solution.

 

 

Archimate keyword

You can use the archimate keyword to define an element. Stereotype can optionally specify an additional icon. Some colors (Business, Application, Motivation, Strategy, Technology, Physical, Implementation) are also available.

@startuml
archimate #Technology "VPN Server" as vpnServerA <<technology-device>>

rectangle GO #lightgreen
rectangle STOP #red
rectangle WAIT #orange
@enduml

 

 

Defining Junctions

Using the circle keyword and the preprocessor, you can also create junctions.

@startuml
!define Junction_Or circle #black
!define Junction_And circle #whitesmoke

Junction_And JunctionAnd
Junction_Or JunctionOr

archimate #Technology "VPN Server" as vpnServerA <<technology-device>>

rectangle GO #lightgreen
rectangle STOP #red
rectangle WAIT #orange
GO -up-> JunctionOr
STOP -up-> JunctionOr
STOP -down-> JunctionAnd
WAIT -down-> JunctionAnd

Example 1

@startuml

sprite $bProcess jar:archimate/business-process
sprite $aService jar:archimate/application-service
sprite $aComponent jar:archimate/application-component

archimate #Business "Handle claim"  as HC <<business-process>>
archimate #Business "Capture Information"  as CI <<business-process>>
archimate #Business "Notify\nAdditional Stakeholders" as NAS <<business-process>>
archimate #Business "Validate" as V <<business-process>>
archimate #Business "Investigate" as I <<business-process>>
archimate #Business "Pay" as P <<business-process>>

HC *-down- CI

ArchiMate Macros

A list of Archimate marcros are defined Archimate-PlantUML here which simplifies the creation of ArchiMate diagrams.

Using the macros, creation of ArchiMate elements are done using the following format: Category_ElementName(nameOfTheElement, "description")

For Example:

Business_Service(BService, "Business Service")

The ArchiMate relationships are defined with the following pattern: Rel_RelationType(fromElement, toElement, "description") and to define the direction / orientation of the two elements: Rel_RelationType_Direction(fromElement, toElement, "description")

The RelationTypes supported are:

The Directions supported are:

For example:

Rel_Composition(StakeholderElement, BService, "Description for the relationship")Rel_Composition_Down(StakeholderElement, BService, "Description for the relationship")
