post_process.merge_definitions(idp: str) str[source]

In cDMN, it is possible to create different tables that each define the same concept. In cases where relations are defined, this can be problematic. E.g., in the Vacation_Days_Advanced_old example, we define the Employee eligible for Rule relation in 5 different tables, each for a different value of Rule. In IDP, a definition is expected to be complete: all possible values for the defined concept should be defined. All other values are implicitly impossible. Because the cDMN implementation creates 5 different definitions, each defining a different value, this results in an unsat in IDP.

The solution to this problem is to merge all tables defining the same concept.
