I need to hide the discussions from one of Prolaborate repositories. Opening the Properties tab, the Discussions option is enabled and greyed out (I cannot disable it).
I can't work out what blocks this.
Any idea?


Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Use Excel with Javascript
« on: July 23, 2020, 11:05:00 pm »

I need to write a script in Javascript that creates and saves an Excel file but I'm getting errors. SpiderMonkey Mozilla site only has the following page and the info is not relevant + marked as obsolete:

The following leads to a "Class not saved" Exception
var oExcel = new COMObject("Excel.Application");

the following works ok:
var oExcel = new COMObject("Excel.Application",true);

I can see a Microsoft Excel process created in the task manager

The following generates an error : oWorkbook.sheets is undefined
var oWorkbook = oExcel.Workbooks.Add;
var oWorksheet = oWorkbook.Sheets.Add("",1);

Is there an example to create an Excel file and save it?


PCS General Board / Consistency between EA and Prolaborate users
« on: July 22, 2020, 12:25:32 am »
If AD users are configured in EA with the EA security, and they have locks, can Prolaborate make the link between the same authenticated AD user in Prolaborate ? So if a user has a lock on a model, he/she can update a text field via Prolaborate. This would replace the current approach to define a Prolaborate dedicated EA user with lock access on all relevant elements and diagrams.


PCS Bugs and Issues / Theme settings colours bug with
« on: July 21, 2020, 07:39:19 pm »

I'm configuring Prolaborate for a client. Using the latest, the custom Primary and Secondary colors don't work (I still have the blue background colour at the top).
Is this a known bug?

PCS General Board / Cloud hosting prerequisites with Amazon and Azure
« on: July 17, 2020, 11:42:10 pm »
For clients who already have an AWS or Azure account, can you clarify the products they need for Prolaborate and the PCS?

For Azure, I found the following products:
- Web Apps |
- Prolaborate + EA DB on Azure SQL | *2

For AWS, I found:
- for the Application Server instance
- Prolaborate + EA DB on Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) * 2

Can you confirm or amend the required products to run the PCS + Prolaborate?

Bugs and Issues / Connector Line Jump with Archimate
« on: July 16, 2020, 10:53:20 pm »
A client is using Archimate with EA and noticed that the "line jump" doesn't apply to connectors such as Triggering (control flow), Serving (association), etc.
Only a few combinations work e.g. Composition + Aggregation, Composition + Association.

Is there a way to fix this?

PCS Suggestions and Requests / Custom Prolaborate log folder
« on: July 16, 2020, 08:41:49 pm »
I have a client which IT department requires to write log files on a dedicated location e.g. E:\logs\Prolaborate
I can customize it for the PCS logs via the config file.

Would it be possible to set a different folder for each log file? Is the following list complete?
C:\Program Files (x86)\Prolaborate\WebApplication\VirtualAssets\AccessLogs
C:\Program Files (x86)\Prolaborate\WebApplication\VirtualAssets\ErrorLogs
C:\Program Files (x86)\Prolaborate\Engine\EnginePCSLogs

Note: in Prolaborate Service Management, I can see the Access and Error log path as read only values to copy. It would be interesting to update them from here.

I noticed the following in the web.config that can be changed. Can you clarify what it does?

<add name="TextWriter" type="System.Diagnostics.TextWriterTraceListener" initializeData="c:\logs\SAML\idp.log" />



Would it be possible to have a Javascript version of the EA libraries to enable a reuse of common /built-in librairies (with a class declaration if possible) ?


Bugs and Issues / [EA15.2] quicklinker to map attributes bug
« on: July 02, 2020, 11:17:47 pm »
Using the latest 1552 build, I'm using the Quicklinker to create dependency links from a class attribute to another one.
This is very useful as I don't have to run the Link to Element feature on each end of the connector.
When creating the link from a selected attribute, I noticed that if I have to scroll down in the diagram to select the target attribut, the link to element feature is not set on the newly create connector.

I'm working on an MDG where a stereotyped class will use custom Languages (custom data types for its attributes).
I'm aware this is a rather specific scenario, but could it be considered for a future build to set the default Language for a given Class stereotype with a UML profile?

Suggestions and Requests / Select element when already on a diagram
« on: June 17, 2020, 06:45:40 pm »
When I add an element e.g. a class on a diagram where it's already available, I get a notification message (The diagram already contains an instance...)
It would be useful in this scenario if this element is selected/focused on the diagram. This is relevant when working on large diagram to prevent from running a Find in all diagrams.


I'm trying to set up the PCS with an HTTPS access.
My client provided a PFX file for the certificate which was successfully used for Prolaborate in IIS.

As this PFX file doesn't seem to work for the PCS, I managed to get 2 PEM files.
One with the -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and the other one with -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
As per the thread here, I copied the content from both files in the server.pem file so I have
Proc-Type: 4,ENCRYPTED

Restarting the PCS, I'm still getting the following message in the logs:

[WARNING]: Unable to create secure server on port 805 (https).


I'm looking for a way to implement a script in EA that will start prompting the user to select a value from a downdown list (e.g. Select the class from the diagram to process: Class1, Class2...)
I know this is not possible with VBScript. Could JScript or even Javascript support it?

My client is using EA13.5, but a migration to the latest 15.1/.2 will eventually happen if there's something in the latest Javascript engine to achieve this.


PCS General Board / Pro Cloud Server vs Cloud Service for EA users
« on: June 03, 2020, 04:10:40 pm »

I have a client who has a PCS Token Edition to use Prolaborate.
He tried to use the PCS to access the repository from EA as well but he often getq a logon error.

Should the PCS Token Edition be reserved for web Prolaborate uses only? Does it work fine as soon as one upgrades to the Team Server edition?
For EA users, shall I recommend to install the Cloud Service on the same server and configure it on a dedicated port?

PCS General Board / Prolaborate - Select a connector from a diagram
« on: May 28, 2020, 10:19:13 pm »
Opening a diagram in Prolaborate makes it possible to select elements but not connectors.
I understand the technical issues that make it difficult to identify where the connector is located within the diagram image.

Is it feasible and planned for a future release?
