Remove Replication

Replication makes many changes to the database structure of your model, so the model file becomes considerably larger with additional information; you might, therefore, decide not to use the replication feature any more.

Remove replication from your model

Step

Action

1

Ensure that you have open a temporary repository (not the one having replication removed) - the menu option is not available if no repository is open.

 

2

Select the Remove Replication menu option.

The Remove Replication Wizard displays.

 

3

Enter the full path and file name of the project to have replication removed.

Click on the Next button.

 

4

Enter the full path and file name of the base Enterprise Architect model (with no replication) to act as template.

Click on the Next button.

 

5

Enter the full path and required file name for the output file.

Click on the Next button.

 

6

Select whether to have a log file created and, if so, enter a file name for the log file.

 

7

Click on the Run button to begin removing replication.

Enterprise Architect creates a new project containing all the model information.

Your model has now had replication removed, and should be considerably smaller.

 

Notes

You cannot remove replication from a model with Auditing enabled - if you want to remove replication:

If prompted to do so, allow Enterprise Architect to roll back the database version
