This example shows how to share the same configuration set for the top model and referenced models in a model reference hierarchy. You can use a configuration reference in each of the models to reference the same configuration set object in the base workspace.
In the diagram, each
model shown in the Model Dependency Viewer specifies the configuration
my_configuration, as its active configuration
my_configuration points to the freestanding
Configuration. Therefore, the
parameter values in
Configuration apply to all
four models. Any parameter change in
to all four models.
In the top model, you must convert the active configuration set to a configuration reference:
and the Model Explorer.
In the Model Hierarchy pane, expand the top model,
In the list, right-click
In the context menu, select Convert to Configuration
In the Configuration set name field,
specify a name for the configuration set object, or use the default
configSetObj. This configuration set object
is stored in the base workspace.
Optionally, you can save the configuration set to a MAT-file. Select Save configuration set to file. This enables the File name parameter.
In the File name field, specify a name for the MAT-file.
The original configuration set is now stored as a configuration
configSetObj, in the base workspace.
The configuration set is also stored in a MAT-file,
The active configuration for the top model is now a configuration
reference. This configuration reference points to the configuration
set object in the base workspace.
Now that the top model contains an active configuration reference,
you can propagate this configuration reference to all of the child
models. Propagation creates a copy of the top model configuration
reference in each referenced model. For each referenced model, the
configuration reference is now the active configuration. The configuration
references point to the configuration set object,
in the base workspace.
In the Model Explorer, in the Model Hierarchy pane,
Right-click the active configuration reference, Reference (Active). In the context menu, select Propagate to Referenced Models.
In the Configuration Reference Propagation dialog box, select the check box for each referenced model. In this example, they are already selected.
Verify that your current folder is a writable folder. The propagation mechanism saves the original configuration parameters for each referenced model so that you can undo the propagation. Click Propagate.
In the Propagation Confirmation dialog box, click OK.
In the Configuration Reference Propagation dialog
box, the Propagation Report is updated and the Status for
each referenced model is marked as
After propagating a configuration reference from a top model
to the referenced models, you can undo the propagation for all referenced
models by clicking Restore All. If you want
to undo the propagation for individual referenced models, in the Undo/Redo column,
click the Undo button. The Propagation Report
is updated and the Status for the referenced
model is set to
