General Board / Re: Build Project Glossary from Ontology Model

I think you need to write some kind of script to do that.

General Board / Re: How TF can I list my latest posts?
« on: March 02, 2016, 02:30:31 am »
No Idea what TF stands for, but I assume you are searching for your post you mentioned.
I found this,30347.0.html
which goes somehow I this direction.

How did I find that?
In seach “By user" I added “qwerty” and in "Serach for" I added “to” (just because of, I need 2 characters for some reason and the word “to” is very common)
and Message age 1-50 (0-xxx will not work)

Ok! strange approach!

General Board / Re: Baselines

But a view people unfortunately are forced to be interested in the past as well.

We baseline some well-defined higher level packages (requirements package, architecture package,…). Those packages can have deep package levels underneath but element references (classifiers, associations,..) are only allowed to a defined set of other “higher level packages.
The baselines are used to prove what state of the packaged was e.g. verified and to analyze what has changed, because we have to provide change details, once a product is shipped (safety related stuff).

Another use case is to baseline “the View Package” where all our stuff of a certain system level is in. This is because we have “another View Package” where shared model stuff is in (some kind of read only Library).
Before we update to a new Library version, we baseline “the view Package” and the current “another View Package (LIB)” (just to be able to go back in case of disaster), afterwards we switch to the new Library Version and then we restore the baseline of “the view Package” we created shortly before. By doing so, associations added from our model to the old library version will be kept (hopefully in any future version of EA).

General Board / Re: Separating ActivityParameters in Action Pin
« on: March 01, 2016, 06:55:18 pm »
No idea why one should prefer one way over another.
When doing your style, I get the same results as with my style. The different is just in your way the pin are stacked over each other so it is hard to see that there are more than one pin.

General Board / Re: Help with custom report
« on: March 01, 2016, 04:42:27 am »
Look on this discussion:,30346.0.html
Notes, Constraints, … are somehow hidden in several aspects but of cause they are somewhere stored in the data base.
I think you need to create a custom query to get the data from the data base to get the results shown by a custom template afterwards.

Not sure what you are talking about.

When you call an Activity from an action you can use the structural element dialog to get the  Activity Parameters as action pins (each activity parameter you select will be an action pin).

How do you get one action pin containing all activity parameters at all?

Ok! Thank you!
Just I wanted to be sure that there is no low effort solution.
I will go the MDG way.

General Board / Re: Usage of document Meta Data in document templates
« on: February 29, 2016, 07:23:23 pm »
Hello RoyC,
these report constants I already use in my EA V12, but I need some further information like department name, document type, verifier,... These data I could put as tagged values to my document root package, but I have no way to access that data e.g. in headers, footers. Just a way to access tagged values as Report Constants would be a way to solve my problem.

Hello Glassboy,
I do not have a problem in where to put my meta data to, I have a problem in putting my meta data on cover pages or headers and footers. Do you have a way how I can put the meta data from the "class element" to a header, footer, cover page?

General Board / Usage of document Meta Data in document templates
« on: February 27, 2016, 04:27:12 am »
I work in an environment where nice pretty and formal documents are required.

These documents need some meta data (project name, project number, document number,….). These data is either project specific or document specific and must go to the cover page or header/footer.
All my project specific data I put in Project Constants. When defining document templates I can use those constants on cover page or header and footer (all fine).

The problem I have is with the document specific data. This data I could hold as tagged values in a package. But I find no way how to access those tagged values because I need to be in the package or I would need a custom query, but none of both I can use in cover page nor in header/footer.
Any idea?

Hello Geert
I have already profiles packed in a MDG technology which e.g. introduces a non SysML requirements management language.

I am looking on something that is “cheaper” (low effort).
With uml profile a cheap solution would be, just to define a stereotype which I could use for anything. But I look as well for a solution where I can mark quick anything without treating each of “anything” (classes, activities, ....) individually.

General Board / Re: ModelView column width

I have no columns in my model views at all.
It is just a tree!

What do you mean with how to manage package baselines?
What menu items you have to press, or what are package baselines typically used for and on which package level,…?

I have some kind of model library that is intended to be used in other EA repositories.

Basically several user will create content for this model libraries.

The users who use the libraries will import those libraries somehow to their model and use the library more or less as read only elements.

I think it would be good, when the users would be able to quickly find out (e.g. when looking on their diagrams) whether an element belongs to their own work or when it just is a library element or is classified by an element coming from the library.

Currently I belief I should stereotype all that library elements manually or by a script before distribution. So I would be able to define in addition, some visual effects on those elements.
Do any of you, have some better ideas how to achieve such an indication with low effort, maybe even working when the library element is used as an classifier in a project using the library?

General Board / Re: Mapping an activity to its structured activity
« on: February 27, 2016, 12:14:44 am »
Yes you can do that!
Just use the Relationship Matrix under Tools.

There you have to select as source and target the “root” package where all you activities and actions are. Further on you have to select the link type and the direction you want to us.
Doing that you can click on the matrix to establish, delete or just to check what links are there.

However the matrix might contradict to the classifiers you have chosen in your action calls because nobody than you will check if the matrix and your action calls fit together.

If you just want to find out where an activity is called by which action use Traceability under “View” (do not forget to select the “Classifier” option). This view is maybe not very user friendly but it will give you the answer.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Lateral Horizontal/Vertical connector style
« on: February 26, 2016, 08:32:11 pm »
From my experience, when you relate A (source) to B (destination) in very most cases:
-Lateral Vertical means; line goes vertical from destination and horizontal from source
-Lateral Horizontal means line goes horizontal from destination and vertical from source

This is just the opposite of what I expected some time ago.
But some years ago I realized that drawing most of these UML relations need to be drawn in opposite of what I expected as well.

And opposite * opposite is fine for me.
