The view is accessible via menu options on the ribbon that have been configured by an Architect, and are available when an AUTOSAR System item is selected. Below is one example of a configured option.
Getting Acquainted with the View
With an allocated AUTOSAR system selected, the top section of the view will present a grid of approved architectural signals together with the system signals which based on them and will be generated. Some filtering options are also available to make working with long signal lists easier. Any faulty mappings will be displayed in the bottom section of the view.
The following information is displayed in the list.
Arch Signal name
System Signal Name
|New||Indicates that a new signal will be created in the System signals list|
|Included||Indicates that the signal is already generated and included in the System signals list|
|No data type||Indicates that no data type exists in the Sender receiver interface|
|Delete||Indicates that Arch system signal does not exist in the Arch system signal list|
|Included new version||Indicates that the Arch system signal has been updated, but the mapping or group mapping has not. The versions are not in sync. |
Some useful Filter options are available at the top of the view if you are interesting in only viewing a subset of architectural signals. Multiple selections are ORed together. Filtering is useful especially with long lists.
Faulty mappings are mappings that do not have a system signal. When you use the view to generate system signals as described below, the listed faulty mappings will be removed.
Generating System Signals
In order to use the view to generate system signals, the view checks for the existence of the following:
- The Autosar system must be in 'Work' status
- An Arch system signal list exists in the structure and it is in 'Work' status
- The interfaces have datatypes
- The records and arrays are not empty. Any empty ones are ignored.
To generate system signals, click the Generate System Signals button at the bottom right corner of the view.
The table below describes how listed signals are handled based on their Status.
Result of Generate Operation
|New||New signal will be created and marked as Included|
|Included||Signal is ignored since it has already created and included|
|No data type||Signal is ignored if there is no data type|
|Delete||Signal will be deleted|
|Included new version||Signal(s) in the mappings will be updated to the correct version, i.e., the version of the signal in Arch system signal list|
|Note: If no Arch system signal list is found in the selected AUTOSAR system, a pop-up will indicate this. |
An Arch system signal list can be created using the Architectural System Signals extension view.
If no System signals list is found, you will also be notified:
