The YaSM Process Map for ARIS contains objects with external links, for example data objects ("technical terms") with links to checklists and quick objects on the front page with links to accompanying documents.


These links must be adjusted to the client's environment, so that the objects' link attributes contain the correct document paths - pointing, for example, to the exact locations of the documents on the local network.


One of ARIS' in-built reports ("Export attribute values for translation") can be helpful in this respect. For instance, it can be used for exporting the attribute values of all checklist objects, including their link information, to an Excel spreadsheet. In Excel, the links can be modified very easily using "Search and Replace".


Once the links are changed in Excel, the spreadsheet can be re-imported into ARIS with the "Import translated attributes" report.
