General Board / Pro Cloud/WebEA and log in (Single Sign On)
« on: September 13, 2017, 04:12:16 am »

We got an EA 13.5 installation and have downloaded the ProCloud/WebEA trial. I got it to work in our local network but it seems that WebEA doesn't support Single Sign On. That I type in my Active Directory credentials.

I open Enterprise Architect normally with my Active Directory credentials. But from WebEA it doesn't accept my credentials. I must set the password in the EA client to something so I can use WebEA.

Is this a bug or an oversight. Or maybe it is a setup thing on the web server.

Anyone hit this problem?


Bugs and Issues / Nested elements and ArchiMate3::ArchiMate_Aggregation
« on: August 25, 2017, 08:00:13 pm »

Aggregation & Composition behave differently for nesting different elements. In the Application toolbox I create an Aggregation relationship between two elements and then place one inside the other. The line disappears. As it should according to specification.
If I do the same thing for Business Funstions the line does not disappear. Is there something in the MDG that I can modify so as to get this behaviour?

General Board / EA Database structure verion
« on: August 24, 2017, 07:32:49 pm »
We have been running 12.1 and upgraded to 13.5. But seeing as I have only recently taken over admin of the database I don't know their version. Is there a way to find out which Version of the EA database I got?
I am thinking something simple like:

SELECT * FROM t_version

General Board / EA Swimlanes and custom Tagged Values
« on: August 24, 2017, 02:45:52 am »
Has EA v13.5 lost the ability to Swimlane on Tagged Values? KanBan seems to have kept that ability and I do remember in v12.1 doing Swimlanes on custom Tagged Values.
Is there something I missed in the configuration og a Swimlane in v13.5?

General Board / Security: Row Level Locking
« on: August 21, 2017, 06:51:55 pm »
I have a question about security in EA.
I have been reading about the addition of row level locking for EA. But I haven't really seen it. Neither in the released product nor in commitments to a future release. Can anyone shed some light on this???

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Scripting: Run button disabled
« on: August 18, 2017, 06:31:42 pm »
Does anyone have an idea why my Run button is diabled in the Scripting toolbox? I am Administrator. In EA 12.1 it is enabled. In EA 13 it is disabled.

General Board / Automatic Color Elements based on Tagged Values
« on: August 18, 2017, 04:17:21 am »
Hopefully someone has done this before and can help me out :)

I have been investigating Heat Map dashboards and they are really informative. What I would like to do is place elements (for example: ArchiMate Application Components) onto a diagram and based on Tagged Values to change the default color automatically.

I could do this with a script. But I don't want it to be a manual task. Maybe there is a "Before Display" event I could use to trigger the color change.

Any help would be appreaciated.

Uml Process / BPMN Import - Diagram does not draw correctly
« on: August 02, 2017, 08:24:47 pm »

I recently got a BPMN file that was exported from CA Agile Requirements Designer. I am trying to import it into EA using Import XML / BPMN v2.0. It imports all of the elements but the diagram comes ou very strange. For example: Arrows don't Connect to boxes. They just stop in dead Space on the canvas.

I am guessing that the Bounds and Waypoint coordinates are the problem. That EA uses different geometry. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks for any advice

General Board / Database Engineering: Remove Schema on import
« on: June 19, 2017, 08:54:02 pm »

Got a question for reverse engineering a database that has Schema names (Oracle, DB2 etc.). Is there an option in EA to ignore the schema name on the import? What I am really trying to do is compare one live database schema to another lives schema.
Maybe I could just change it in the model? But I don't want to do that manually.

Thanks in advance

Last week we encountered an interesting defect. For some reason the Parent_ID of a t_package got the same id as the Package_ID. This meant that it was a parent of itself. And of course dropped out of the Project Browser.
The solution was to og into the database and run an UPDATE SQL to reconnect it to a package in the Browser.

Has this been reported before?

General Board / Database Builder: More than on connection
« on: June 08, 2017, 06:53:40 pm »

Is there a recommended way to compare two live databases? We have a Development, test and Production database and I was thinking to use EA Database Builder to compare (for example) Development With test to generate an update DLL script.

How can this be done? Do I just change the database Connection element on the diagram?



Does anyong know of an MDG Technology for the OMG Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Business Rules (SBVR)?

I am using this code to run a report but it keeps failing when the machine is logged off. Anyone have tried this and got it to work?

Thanks in advance.
Eaomnn J.

Code: [Select]
private static Repository repo = new Repository();
private static Project project;

repo.OpenFile2(options.SourceFile, options.UserName, options.Password);
project = repo.GetProjectInterface();
packageName = repo.GetPackageByGuid(options.Package).Name;
project.RunHTMLReport(options.Package, options.TargetFIle, "png", templateName, "html");       

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Custom MDG ArchiMate and UML
« on: April 27, 2017, 11:43:02 pm »
Hope someone can help me With this.
I have create and MDG. Toolbox, diagrams and everything i working fine.
The issue that I get is when converting from my MDG to ArchiMate 3 to UML the Aggregation diamond changes direction.

I have a MetaClass that is an Extension of Aggregation. Setting the CompositionType has no affect. I also have the Generalisation to ArchiMate3::ArchiMate_Aggregation.

is there some trick attribute?

The reason I want to do this to be able to export from EA to other Tools that only support UML.

Thanks in advance,
Eamonn J.
