Hi everybody,

for purposes of CMMI mappings it would be useful to have bidirectional
associations between Practices and any other elements.

Currently, it is possible to link any element to a Practice. The Practice
shows all linked elements, and I can navigate to that element. This is why
the Practice is the first choice to handle the use case below.

However, that element does not show the link back to the Practice, and
that's exactly what would be useful.

Background: Using Practices is a good mean to show what elements fulfill a
CMMI goal/practice (because it can be linked to everything).
But: from an element-point of view it would be interesting to see, which
CMMI goals/practices it belongs to.

Are there plannings to implement such a bidirectionality?
Does somebody have a similar situation and a different solution?

Thanks a lot,
Gerhard

Just to avoid misunderstandings: Of course, disciplines are an appropriate
mean to get bidirectional associations. However, disciplines do not allow
to assign all types of elements.

Therefore, practices are useful, but these do not produce bidirectional
links.

As it does not make conceptual sense to modify disciplines, an enhancement
of practices would be useful.
