General Board / How to apply stereotype from toolbox to package?
« on: December 03, 2015, 02:44:15 am »
I created a Profile which includes different stereotyped elements. They belong to a custom toolbox and applies to UseCases and Packages.

If I want to apply the stereotyped element to a previously created Use Case, I can drag the stereotyped element from my custom toolbox while pressing Ctrl over the old Use Case. This result on the creation of some predefined tag values for the old Use Case (defined in the profile).

But, when trying to do the same on a package, the drag + ctrl over a previously created package results on a prompt asking for a new package name and not applying de stereotype to the package.

Same way if not dragging pression Ctrl even if in the prompt "apply/create new" I select apply.

I have 100 packages previously created to apply a stereotype pretending to have the tagged values created. Any advice in how to do it easily?

(I already did the same to 100 use cases manually and took no more than 5 minutes)

General Board / 2 simple question about Cloud Service not in help
« on: July 30, 2015, 01:33:23 am »
I have 2 simple questions about the Cloud Service that are not clear in the help/documentation:

1) Is it required to use IIS with Cloud Service? or is it optional.
2) When connecting EA to a Cloud based repository, in the field "Model Name", what is supossed to be input? The model itself has no name. The database (MySQL, in my case) has a name, but not the model. It seems not to work with the database name.

General Board / How to set the default status for elements?
« on: July 30, 2015, 03:48:11 pm »
I have set a different list of Status for elements (from General Types windows) and I like one of them to be set as the default state when a new element is created. How can I set this?

I also have a Profile with stereotyped elements (if it helps), so maybe there is a non-documented attribute to be used in the stereotype or the metaclass to set the default Status when creating a new element by using the profile?

General Board / Relative reference within Model Views
« on: July 30, 2015, 08:12:23 am »
When creating Dashboard diagrams (EA>=11), you can include Model Views which consist in a SQL query executed in the whole model. When using TimeSeriesChart, for example, each serie has its own query but the whole chart could be executed for a given package, not the whole model.

I have a package structure with dashboard diagrams and several elements and packages within the structure. This structure is supposed to be copied and pasted in another model location, as if it where a structure template.

The problem is the SQLs in the model views are executed in the whole model and could not be refered to some package in the structure copied. Is there a way to do something in the Model View query to refer to the current element or the element package? something like #PACKAGEID# or #OBJECTID#? (I tested it and didn't work)

Bugs and Issues / 12.1 installer error (Windows 10 Smart Screen)
« on: December 02, 2015, 07:44:41 am »
When trying to install version 12.1 on Windows 10, it throws an error because Windows Smart Screen is locking the installation. If I disable Smart Screen, then throws an error saying: "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows installer package"

When Smart Screen was active, it warned about the msi has no a valid manufacturer. In the "manufacterer" field it shows "unknown" (where I expected to find "Sparx Systems").

I download the installer again several times, in order to discard a corrupted downloaded msi.

So, I am not able to install version 12.1 in my PC. Any idea? Anybody with the same behavior?

Bugs and Issues / Connectors behaving weird in v12
« on: March 19, 2015, 12:49:52 am »
I'm creating new activity diagrams and state machine diagrams in EA12 but it seems connectors now have a weird behavior. They don't fit the same way as before (EA11). Connectors are not aligned to the center of the elements they connect.

Anyone having the same behavior? any way to solve it?

Bugs and Issues / Specification Manager displaying error before open
« on: October 25, 2014, 06:39:35 am »
We have a large database repository in SQLServer (3 Gb aprox). Several modeles, several users, several groups and every package/element/diagram locked to a given group.

Repository was created and tipically used in EA 9.3. We are testing it now using EA11 and we have noted when you try to open Specification Manager for some packages it display an alert with the text: "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server (...) Conversion failed when converting the nvarchar value '{A-GUID-LIKE-VALUE}' to data type int."

Below the message you can see the Specification Manager for the selected package, and after clicking OK button in the alert window, the SM works fine.

The GUID-LIKE-VALUE shown in the message is always the same, no matter the package you selected to open the SM. We have tested in different packages, located in different views and different models. For some of them the error is shown (same GUID in the message) and for other is never shown.

This problem only happens in one of 4 EA SQLServer repositories. The problem could not be replicated in EAP or other local files.

Any ideas?

Bugs and Issues / Overwriting package group lock not possible in v11
« on: October 25, 2014, 03:11:22 am »
There is a "bug" in EA v 11.1.1110 when you try to overwrite a package group lock, just by opening the "Lock/Unlock Package(s)" window and clicking the "OK" button (if you had previously locked the current package to a group). The message shown is: "You must enter a valid group name if locking at the group level".

In previous versions this message was not shown and overwriting a package group lock used to be useful when you had several child packages with different group locks; you were able to set again all the locks to a given group by using the parent package. Now it is not possible.

Bugs and Issues / Automation server can't create object in Windows 8
« on: July 08, 2014, 11:52:16 pm »
I had some JScripts running perfectly in my previous PC (Windows 7, 32 bits, EA 10). Now, I'm testing them in my new PC (Windows 8.1, 64 bits, EA 11) and it throws and error in the following line of code:

var xmlDOM = new ActiveXObject( "MSXML2.DOMDocument.4.0" );

The error says: "Automation server can't create object".

Note I'm using the same script as shown in the EA Help, under "Example Template Fragment Script".

I also have .NET 4 installed in both 32 and 64 bits environments.

My client has 100+ users and is using EA 12. He needs to set a tagvalue when the status of an element in a Kanban diagram changes.

Is it possible in version 12 to have an event listener or something like that that detects the element status change and execute some script?

Have in mind that there are many users and it is too time expensive to install an add-in in every computer.

The ideal solution is to use something similar to a Workflow script (that works completelly in EA without installing additional software).

Any idea?

Thanks in advance.

If I drag & drop an excel file (xlsx) to be included into the model as an internal document, is it possible to include the stored document as part of the RTF documentation as you can do with a Linked document?

I want to store excel files into the model, and include them into the generated documentation, but I can't find any section in the document template designer to include the content of the file.
