It is frustrating when you use the advantages of implementing Cloud Server in a company that has been using connections via ODBC to the EA Repository, but it is not possible to upload model images in order to be used as alternate images for elements.

General Board / How to massively change fixed to floating licenses?
« on: April 20, 2017, 03:11:15 am »
I have the following scenary: 300 fixed licenses installed in 300 computers and 250 floating licenses installed in a server.

I want to migrate the 300 computers to use the floating licenses instead of the fixed licenses. Is there any way to build a .bat or something like that in order to massively run it in the background to avoid changing it manually? I don't want to enter to the option "Register and manage your license keys" in EA one by one. Do you know if this information is stored in any plan file? XML? a windows registry entry?

In a diagram, I created a "Cloud" shape (from the "Whiteboard" toolbox). I reused it (included as linked element) in several diagrams. Then, I define a default image for this element as any image from the Image Manager. Then I wanted to go back to the default appearance of the Cloud element, so I redefined the default image as --NONE-- in the Image Manager, but now, the Cloud is shown in all diagrams as a Class stereotyped as <<cloud>> instead of the cloud-shaped element. I don't find any way to make the shape looks like the original and it modified all diagrams where I was using this element.

How can I set the default element shape after setting-unsetting the default element image?

I have made a MDG technology which contains a Profile. The profile contains stereotypes extending UML objects (for example: "Proceso" extending "Activity") and some stereotypes extending non UML objects (for example: "Aplicacion" generalizating "Archimate3::Archimate_ApplicationComponent"). The Profile and MDG is packaged as usual.

When creating new elements from the profile toolbox, the "Proceso" is shown in the diagram as an "Activity" and you can show the stereotype "<<Proceso>>". But, when creating a "Aplicacion", the elementos is shown in the diagram as an "Application Component" but the stereotype is hidden in the diagram.

I need to be able to see the stereotype <<Aplicacion>> in the diagrams.

PD: Both stereotyped elements have defined the special attribute _metatype

If Pro Cloud Server is planned for 2017 Q2, do you (Sparx Systems) plan to release a beta version before the official release?

Suggestions and Requests / Audit create/delete linked documents
« on: September 24, 2016, 03:54:07 am »
Based on history told in,36989.0.html I suggest the Audit could log the creation or deletion of linked documents. Information could be lost easily and in a large group of users is not possible to find the responsible.

Bugs and Issues / Audit create/delete linked documents?
« on: September 23, 2016, 07:41:38 am »
In a production environment, EA 12, Oracle database, I have Audit enabled (Audit level: Extended, Audit Options: All).

For some elements we have lost the linked documents (I supposed somebody accidentally erased them). So we search in the Audit View but it seems it doesn't show the changes in linked documents. I'm not interested in view changes in the document, but the creation and deletion events.

Any way to find the user that deleted the linked documents?

Bugs and Issues / Customized database datatype mapping not working
« on: May 11, 2016, 01:42:13 am »
The following bug was tested on both EA10 and EA12.1.

After customizing the Database datatypes mapping (PROJECT/Settings/Database datatypes/Datatype Map) from MySQL to SQLServer 2012, I want to convert MySQL "datetime" into SQLServer "datetime2" and MySQL "text" into SQLserver "varchar(max)". I double-checked the mapping is stored (because the user interface is very weird) and execute the transformation in the package containing the tables via Right Click/Code Engineering/Reset DBMS Options and choosing convert DBMS Type from MySQL to SQLServer 2012.

The result: the mappings for "datetime" and "text" were executed as the default mapping, not as my customized mapping.

Am I doing something wrong? is any step missing?

Bugs and Issues / SOLVED: Can't connect to cloud server on Mac
« on: March 17, 2016, 07:06:08 am »
It is supposed EA is multiplatform, so I installed it on a Mac, but when trying to connect to a cloud server it throws an error number (-2147467261 in my case) and the connection is not loaded.

Has anybody tested cloud connectivity from a Mac?

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?
