In other words, a security model that a security analyst can build access profiles with the appropriate privileges. This article provides the business analyst a method for documenting a security model in the BRD based on information extracted from Use Case and Class models
Today’s letter is “C” – for Class Diagrams. Business Analysts use Class Diagrams to help them discover ‘structural’ business rules and to document them in a visual form that is readily understood by developers. What is a structural rule?
