Title: [Cloud] Migrate EA models to cloud repositories
Post by: Prolaborate Support on March 10, 2020, 12:50:01 am
Assumption: You want to do a one-time migration so that you can continue using cloud repositories going forward.

The only option is to use the native XML feature released in EA 15. Learn more here (https://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/15.1/model_publishing/projecttransfer_nativexml.html)

Note: This can be availed as a service from us. You can share the eap file with us and we will get the models loaded in the cloud for you.

What about reference data?

Just yesterday we completed an XMI export / import to our new PCS, but I don't see our scripts or document templates in the PCS model.

I am about to do an export/import of reference data, but first I want to ask - are there any parts of the reference data I don't want to bring over to PCS?
The lazy approach is to check off everything in the export dialog, but I just want to ask in case there is some reference data that would mess up the model on the PCS side.

Quick note on my XMI export/import experience.
It failed when I ran import from my own laptop over VPN, but worked OK when we ran it from a Sparx EA client running on the server.
That is, XMI import worked fine for a small model over VPN, but it failed for the real model XMI, which is about 32 MB in size.

Thanks,
Hakan Lidstrom

Reference data and templates won’t be transferred automatically when you use XMI export/import.
Native XML, similar to XMI project transfer, will completely export all the details from the model including reference data, document templates, etc. Please try it and share the results.

Just a little feedback.
We successfully exported / imported native format and exported / imported reference data in a separate file. (All reference data except Security, which we wanted set up differently in the PCS environment.)
I addition we also exported to XMI 1.1 format at the same time as the native export. We then used the XMI 1.1 file to validate the native import. That is, we ran a Baseline Compare immediately after the native import.  (Ribbon: Design: Model: Manage: Manage baselines …)
We had, of course, also run a compact and a successful Project Integrity check on the EAPX repository before exporting.
We are up and running with PCS and WebEA and look forward to soon start exploring Prolaborate.

 we have several RootNodes, we have to migrate each Rootnode separate, how is relations between element & diagrams handled when they are in separated Rootnodes when usining Native XMI funktion & format
