InContext Reference Models (tticm1500m000)

Use this session to receive an overview of the available InContext reference model (IRM). You can use several functions in the available models or create new models.

An IRM is a model of tables and references that are generated from the existing table definitions. The table definitions contain the so-called hard references between tables. These relations between tables are stored in the IRM.

The IRM contains a basic link between tables and context messages. Those links are based on a configuration file. The configuration file describes the available context messages and their field types (domains) which are connected to certain context messages. For example; the domain that describes the latitude of a GPS location that leads to a context message that drives a map integration.

An IRM covers an application (a set of packages that use the same versioning). The PMC Base VRC is used as the notion of this set of packages. Multiple model versions can be generated, stored and compared. You cannot edit an IRM. An IRM is generated and then used to generate an InContext Implementation Model (IIM).

Field Information

InContext Model Identification

The name of the InContext reference model.

Base VRC

The PMC Base VRC which identifies the version of the components that are used to generate the model. The table definitions are selected from the Export VRC of this Base VRC.

Generation Date

This field is not editable and contains the generation date of the model.

Generation User

This field is not editable and contains the user who generated the model.


This field is not editable. It shows if the model is valid. Valid does not mean up to date. During the validation step all tables were present in the model and linked to the applicable context message types.
