UML Association cardinality in Visio 2013


  • Is there a way to define cardinality (1:1, 1:N, N:M,...) of associations in UML class diagrams in Visio 2013?

    Thanks for help.

  • Hi,

    Use relationship to create the associations in UML diagrams.

    Then double click the relationship, enter the cardinality.

  • Hi Jaynet,

    thanks for your reply. I tried the approach that you describe but it is not useful for vertical relationships. Look at the example below - it is not clear what is the relation between A and C. Previous versions of Visio had specific attributes in properties of class associations. Are they gone in Visio 2013 (as most UML features)?

  • Ok, that means bye-bye Visio as a SW project documentation tool. Which actually brings a question if there is some value of the whole MS Office stack for a software development company.

  • Hi, it looks like all the UML-support is in Viso 2013 now.

  • Hi Nicklas, your link points to Visio 2007. We are talking aboyt Visio 2013. UML support was dropped in it. Quite symptomatic......
