In the Steel Joints add-on, you can classify the joint stiffnesses.

In addition to the initial stiffness, the table also shows the limit values for pinned and rigid connections for the selected internal forces N, My, and/or Mz. The resulting classification is then displayed in tables as "rigid", "semi-rigid", and "pinned".
