Party Relationship Module


Party Relationship Module#

The party relationship module allows to define different types of relations between parties.

Each relation is defined by a relation type. A reverse relation type can be defined, so when creating a relation of a type, the reverse relation will be automatically created.

It is possible to order parties by how closely related they are to a defined party. The distance is calculated based on the number of steps it takes to get from the defined party to another. By default all the different types of relationship are considered, but this can be limited by adding relation_usages to the context.


The party_relationship module use the section party_relationship to retrieve some parameters:

  • depth: The maximum number of steps to consider when calculating the distance between parties. The default value is 7.
