Batch XMI Import

You can import a group of controlled packages from XMI into Enterprise Architect in one step.

As Enterprise Architect processes each package, it updates the Status column against each package name on the Batch XMI Import dialog.

If the import is successful, Enterprise Architect updates the package status to Imported
If the import is unsuccessful, Enterprise Architect updates the package status to Not Imported

 

Common reasons for an import to fail include:

The package not being correctly configured
The last import file date matches the import date of the file currently on disk
