Is there a macro equivalent for the report method 'model.createGrouping ( GroupingMember[]  groupedOccs )'.

In our conventions we describe that on each model there should be ONE occurrence (A) connected to a special object (B). The smaller symbol (B) is placed in the right upper corner of the symbol of occurrence (A). To keep them together I want to make a grouping of the two occurrences. In the initial report that I use to adjust the existing models I use the createGrouping() method. But to help the modeler I want to do the same in a macro. It is al working, except for the grouping of the occurrences. Any ideas?

I use ARIS 10.0.7 and there is a method called "createUnion" within the macro class Designer. Is that what you're looking for? The method asks for a model and an array of occurrences that are supposed to be grouped.

Yes, that is exactly what I was looking for. Now I only have to hide the connection line (seems to be default in the report version).
