Dependencies

Option value definition may have one or more dependencies on other option value definitions within the same model or across included models. The supported types of dependencies are presented below. Dependent types are addressed using a local JSONPath path.

Requirement dependency

When options are mentioned in this type of dependency, their arity is promoted to required.

"deps": [ { "require": [ "@.A", ... ] } ]

Disable dependency

When options are mentioned in this type of dependency, their use is disabled.

"deps": [ { "disable": [ "@.A", ... ] } ]

Value-guarded dependency

Value-guarded dependencies are activated only when the option has one of the value specified in the when list.

"deps": [ { "when": [ v0, v1 ], "require": [ "@.A", ... ] } ]
"deps": [ { "when": [ v0, v1 ], "disable": [ "@.A", ... ] } ]

Constraint-guarded dependency

Constraint-guarded dependencies enforce the final value of the dependent type.

"deps": [ "require": [ "@.A", ... ], "either": [ V1, V2 ] } ]
"deps": [ "require": [ "@.A", ... ], "range": "[ V1, V2 ]" } ]

Mixing dependencies

"deps": [
  { "require": [ "@.A", ... ] },
  { "when": [ V ], "require": [ "@.A", ... ] }
]
