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 / Re: Locations in Archimate 3.0

You can find the Location element in the "Archimate 3.0"/"Technology" toolbox in the section "Physical Extension"

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?

I didn't find any way to do it by using the application. I had to build a script and set the following attribute for my element:

Code: [Select]
if(element.StyleEx == "DefaultImage=0;") {
     element.StyleEx = "";

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?

Same issue, same scenary. The error message is clear and I'm afraid it is a "feature". Have you test it in a Oracle repository? I'm thinking in migrating to Oracle because it is a non-sense feature.

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?

General Board / Re: How to limit Search to one package?
« on: September 13, 2016, 12:09:38 am »
When you edit the Search, click on the button "Search Options" (the button with a checkbox list icon) and then select "Return matching items for the selected package"

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 / Re: Can't connect to cloud server on Mac
« on: March 31, 2016, 08:16:36 am »
After a "succesful" instalation on Mac, when trying to connect to a cloud server, EA is throwing the following error message:

Microsoft OLEDB Persistence Provider
Requested functionality is not implemented.

Any ideas?

Yes, I have it installed. Any other thing to check? is it supposed to work fine on Mac? I also note that some diagrams (kanban, for example) don't behave well.
