Association status attribute

All features in a utility network have an attribute called Association status. It indicates the type of association a feature participates in, the role the association plays in a relationship, and any properties that are set, for example, visible content. Analytic events use this attribute to determine the relationships between features.

The Association status attribute uses a system-generated coded value domain to store the association status attribute information. Both the Association status attribute and the coded value domain are system maintained and updated when an association between features is established, updated, or deleted, and when the visibility status for content is modified.

Association Status Attribute Values

Code and field valueDescription

0—None

A feature does not participate in an association.

1—Container

A feature is a container that has content, for example, a transformer bank with transformers inside it.

2—Structure

A feature is a structure that has other features—attachments—attached to it, for example, a pole with a fuse attached to it.

4—Content

A feature is content in a container.

8—Attachment

A feature attached to a structural feature, for example, a fuse attached to a pole.

16—Visible content

A feature is content in a container but visible in a map view.

32—Connectivity

A feature participates in a connectivity association with another feature. This can be point to point or connectivity via terminals, for example, a fuse and an arrester, or a fuse and a terminal on a transformer.

5—Content and container

A container feature (with content) contained in another container feature, for example, a junction box (with content) in a substation.

6—Content and structure

A structural feature contained in a container, for example, a pole in a substation boundary.

9—Attachment and container

A container attached to a structural feature, for example, a transformer bank attached to a pole.

12—Attachment and content

A feature attached to a structural feature inside a container, for example, a transformer on a pole inside a substation boundary.

13—Attachment and content and container

A container (with content) attached to a structural feature, all within another container. For example, a transformer bank (with a transformer in it) attached to a pole inside a substation boundary.

17—Visible content and container

A container (with content) is content to another container and is visible in a map view.

18—Visible content and structure

A structural feature contained in a container is visible in a map view.

24—Visible content and attachment

A feature attached to a structural feature in a container is visible in a map view.

25—Visible content and attachment container

A container (with content) attached to a structural feature is visible in a map view.

36—Connectivity and content

A feature participates in a connectivity association in a container, for example, a pump connected to a valve in a processing plant.

40—Connectivity and attachment

A feature attached to a structural feature participates in a connectivity association, for example, a transformer attached to a pole and connected to a fuse.

44—Connectivity and attachment and content

A feature in a container and attached to a structural feature participates in a connectivity association, for example, a transformer in a transformer bank attached to a pole.

48—Connectivity and visible content

A feature participates in a connectivity association in a container and is visible in a map view.

56—Connectivity and visible content and attachment

A feature in a container and attached to a structural feature participates in a connectivity association and is visible in a map view.
