To verify a stereotype definition -> once you save your profile, you can import it in your Resources Window -> UML Profile, this will allow you to drag and drop your stereotypes into a diagram and verify your results.

FWIW - I've noticed that The  color of your extended stereotype goes to the native color is due to the order of stereotype (in the stereotypeex field), When we remove the Archimate stereotype and reapply the color will be usually corrected.  But this isn't always a reliable solution.


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.

Okay. Thanks for the  note.

I think document script option in the recent versions of EA is what you'll need. You cann call a script from this fragment,  which can call other templates as per the script logic.

This link could give an idea

Are you creating new stereotypes or are you using ArchiMate stereotypes in your toolbar.

Uou must see ArchiMate quicklinker if you are using Stereotypes from ArchiMate, (AFAIK this has very little to do with diagram type)
Even your custom stereotype, if it extends from ArchiMate, you will see the default quick linkers.

However to answer your last question, You can use the Quick LInker definition from the original MDG.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\EA\MDGTechnologies\ArchiMate3.xml, line 3065 gives the quicklinker definition.



Currently I have extended a class diagram and connected it to my own toolboxpage containing a number of standard Archimate concepts. However, If I create a number of concepts on a new instance of this new diagramtype and try to connect them using the quicklinker a different set of relationships appears than when I create the same concepts on a Archimate business layer diagram.

When I change my diagram type to Archimate business layer type the quicklinker shows the correct relationships.
Have you considered defining your own Quicklinker for the toolbox you've created?

Use Diagram Filters, and set mode to 'Hide' this will allow normal 'Context Filtering' to hide non-context items (Default behavior is graying out)

Hi Guillaume
True, i thought the  music player  playlist example (in the old example model) was an activity diagram. But realized its a state diagram too.
Event the event driven example of Activity diagrams doesn't seem to stpo for external triggers. (Example Model.Model Simulation.Activity Models.Order Processing.MultipleOrders.Multiple Orders)

have to seek Support inputs on this?

Best Regards

Hi Guillaume
Have you looked at the 'Example Model.Model Simulation.State Machine Models.Customer Login.Customer.Customer Login' Example

the 'Login' state's entry behavior has the following in 'behavior'

and the dialog refers to the win32Dialog (Login).


The EA application also keeps a cache of objects, so changes you make to the API object may not appear immediately in the EA GUI.

Especially the Cloud Service (which is the advancement of WAN Optimizer) i guess.

Try Renaming your installation folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\EA) to Something else 'EA 12' and then install EA 13.5.

Recent improvements based on Pro Cloud Server allows live EA diagrams to be incorporated into SharePoint / Confluence (rather than overnight publishes)

Try -

You can even embed such diagram in SharePoint

Hello All

I development system architecture with my team. So we collaborate using 'Import/Export XMI'.

But An unexpected situation has occurred in the tag values.

Requirement or Block's tag values have cloned and turned into two.
(If you want, I'll send screen capture by e-mail)

What can I solve that this problem?

please help me

Thank you

Just curious, are you sure your original model (or the merged model) does not have duplicate tags (sometimes, the 'Show Duplicate Tags' is disabled)

  • Put all your Legends on a special diagram in a storage package (Thanks Daniel)
  • Follow up to the cool tip by Daniel Siegl, Use 'Apply Auto color' option of Diagram Legends (EA 12 + ) to color elements based on properties or tagged values. Refer to two variations of same Application Portfolio diagram colored with different diagram legends.

Add attributes inline with 'Ctrl + Shift + F9' - one of the most commonly used trick in Class models
