From my basic understanding of ARIS IT Architect, one can not create new connections, only renaming existing ones.

However, in the filter import screen, under Help for step 1, there is a checkbox called "import method extensions" that states:

" Imports the method extensions, e.g. new connection types, from the export file into the configuration. All user-defined method extensions are saved in the file."

This piqued my curiosity, it sounds like one can create method extensions which could potentially include new connection types, maybe even new association types.

Have any of you created your own connection types before? how did you go about doing it?
