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.

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,

Bugs and Issues / Cloud Services v13: Unable to connect to database
« on: March 31, 2017, 08:17:52 pm »
I have configured Cloud Services v13. I have added a few Connections in the Client and enabled the "Allow Connections" option. On the EA Client v13 I try to Connect to the Cloud Server and get the error Message:
  Unable to connect to database

Do I still need to add ODBC System Connections on the server to connect to the database?

On a side note - how can I tell which models have been deployed?

General Board / Export XMI not 100% standard UML 2.1 XMI??
« on: March 23, 2017, 12:14:35 am »
I came across this statement when looking for import/export possibilities in EA With otherUML modelling Tools:

Enterprise Architect does not export 100% standard UML 2.1 XMI, and this causes some data loss during the import.

The Reference was to v7.1, 7.5 or 8.0. Is this still true for v12.1 & 13? Is there a niffty way I can check this out?


General Board / Resize Model when dropped on a Dashboard
« on: March 08, 2017, 11:54:37 pm »
I have created a Dashboard diagram and I want to display multiple models/diagrams on the same daashboard but the model image will not resize for me. It springs back to its original size when I try. Is there another way to resize the image?

General Board / New Cloud Services: Publishing Feature
« on: March 08, 2017, 10:05:40 pm »

This is probably a question for Sparx Support. But is it possible to run the publish feature in the up and coming new Cloud Services as a Windows Service ?

We currently have problems with this line of code because the user must be logged in to run it and Our server guys automatically log stale sessions as a policy:

Code: [Select]
project.RunHTMLReport(options.Package, options.TargetFIle, "png", templateName, "html");
