Uou must see ArchiMate quicklinker if you are using Stereotypes from ArchiMate, (AFAIK this has very little to do with diagram type)
See Quick Linker Definition Format
Column E is a diagram filter.

Sparx Systems doesn't "force" upgrades very often.

In terms of the keystore, the only reason I can think that an upgrade would be forced if you upgraded a file based keystore to a service, and the EA version was too old to support that.

The current version of the keystore service does include a user option to force a minimum EA version. This allows you as a client to ensure all of your modelers are using an updated version. Find and edit this portion of your service config file if you want to change it.

Code: [Select]
# MINIMUM_EA_BUILD - The minimum build of EA that will be serviced by the
# keystore. You can use this keystore server setting to deny older builds of
# EA shared keys from this keystore.

The unique id is defined by you in EA to reference a version control configuration.

Will WebEA/Pro Cloud help here?

Pro Cloud provides a HTML view into your model, there's no reason to run a HTML report at all.

I can imagine having safeguards for situation where I would be editing package B in a model that doesn't contain Package A, but in this case it the diagram object is part of Package B, so whether or not it is deleted has nothing to do with external references.
But that's exactly what it is. ClassA is a reference to an element external to the package that is being checked in.

SX=0;SY=0;EX=0;EY=0; means the start and end points are offset zero logical units (pixels at 100%) from the center of the source and end objects.

Here's an example from a connector that I joined to the extremities of some relatively large elements.
24,75,SX=71;SY=214;EX=-273;EY=25;EDGE=2;$LLB=;LLT=;LMT=;LMB=;LRT=;LRB=;IRHS=;ILHS=;,Mode=3;EOID=13A6BC3D;SOID=3478A400;Color=-1;LWidth=0;,False, ,56,

If you want the absolute positions you need to get the center points from the objects at either end and calculate them.

General Board / Re: Creating a Navigation Cell from a Matrix Profile

I believe navigation cells currently only work for diagrams.

Do you have child value types, or child properties that are typed by a value type? It should be the latter.

Different browsers have security features that prevent the javascript from running correctly locally.

It's been a while since I updated this table, but I'll copy it here.

ChromeWill not allow file based access without the command line argument --allow-file-access-from-files. The file appears to be returned as null, hence the error received.EA Reports fail with null pointer exception
FirefoxI believe it just allows it for files within the same directory or a sub-directoryEA Reports work without warning
Internet ExplorerPrompts with for permission to access an ActiveX objectEA Reports work after allowing access
Opera < (unknown version between 21 & 27)Access is disabled by default but an option is available to allow it.EA Reports provide a link to the option that needs to be changed
Opera >= (unknown version between 21 & 27)Access is disabled by default no investigation yet about how to make it load except running a web server.Report doesn't load
EdgeAccess is disabled by default no investigation yet about how to make it load except running a web server.Report doesn't load
Anything elseProbably different for each browserLet me know

Either way - strong request to Sparx team: please keep EA fully UML compliant - no 'dialects' or pidgin UML. 

Profiles are the right way to extend UML to a local 'dialect' if it is beneficial for  users...

Richard, in effect any extension can be thought of as a profile. It doesn't matter if it is represented as such within the tool or not. The scenarios originally implemented in EA more than 10 years ago are a composite stereotype property:
Code: [Select]
scenarios: EAScenario [0..*] {unordered, unique]
At the time, those were only a name, type and notes. A few years back the EAScenario object was extended to contain a sequence of steps. ie.
Code: [Select]
steps: EAScenarioStep [0..*] {ordered,

In effect, everything that appears as a shape on a diagram has this local stereotype applied, even if it's not notated. The same stereotype also provides other optional collections like test cases, requirements, issues and simple fields like author, status, difficulty etc. fields. Even the database limitations applied to those fields can be expressed as OCL constraints.

Summary: Extra fields can always be expressed as a profile. It isn't an issue for UML compliance.

The bulk of the schema composer UI is dedicated to defining a subset. That subset can then be generated either to a new model package or to a schema definition file (in a variety of formats).

I'm not sure of Geert's Message Composer, but it sounds like it may be an unnecessary step.

The "values" compartment corresponds to Properties/Parts that are typed by a ValueType.

There is a bit of a trick to getting it displayed. The block won't show the compartment while the property is already on the diagram. If you create the properties on the block diagram, remove them when you want to see the compartment.

Rephrase the question. Does the Oracle OLE driver support Oracle Wallets?

The keystore is still listed as coming soon.

It's currently available in the full pro cloud server, but the currently released versions of Enterprise Architect can't communicate with it because it only runs over https.

General Board / Re: How to word-wrap Diagram Notes
« on: December 14, 2017, 08:24:37 am »
Can you give an example? Normally a note will wrap at word boundaries.

The exception that I'm aware of is when non East-Asian languages combine multiple words without spaces.
