General Board / Multiple KeyStores in the Same Machine
« on: October 05, 2017, 11:31:13 am »
Hi everyone,
Please kindly help, as I am really stuck.
The documentation about Keystore is really lacking. There are features that are not well documented. For example using two keystores in the same machine, with different set of keys. I set them up in the manager, and they are in different folders.
But my question, how come the Keystore service only point to one keystore located in the same folder as the key store service. How can I configure it to also connect to the other key store.
In addition, How can I ask my EA client users to connect to this store versus that store?

I really appreciate your help guys.

General Board / Pro Cloud Server versus SPARX Cloud Service
« on: May 24, 2017, 12:25:50 am »
Hi Everyone,
This may sound like a stupid question, but I would like to understand the difference between the Cloud Service you install in premise to simplify your connections, and this new Pro Cloud Server?

I am currently using the Cloud Service version in my local server with MySQL backend, and I would like to understand the difference so I can analyze the advantage/disadvantage to moving to this new Pro Cloud Server.

In addition, Can I use this new WebEA with my current  Cloud Service?

Thank you and I really appreciate your help.


General Board / Security Question
« on: May 11, 2017, 12:19:20 pm »
Hi Everyone,
Is there is a way to put a security on the package that only certain group can see its content?
I know I can lock it for changes, but the other people accessing the repository can still see the content, but cant change it. I just do not even wants them to see each others content.

I know I can create a separate repository and limit it to the group members, but it is way too many groups to manage, and the organization want to only have one database for everyone, but limits the access right on the package level.

is there is a way to do that in SPARX EA? or is there is a way to accomplish the same thing is a different way than security?


Bugs and Issues / SPARX Cloud Services Issues
« on: May 10, 2017, 01:53:53 pm »
Hi everyone,
I installed sparxsystems cloud services and it is running fine for few days, and I have few mysql databases added to the database managers.
I was a able to connect from my SPARX EA, but when I do XMI import, or even import from a reusable assets, I lose connection, and when I go back to the server and check the services, i found the sparxsystems cloud service is turned off (crashed). I set the recovery to restart after failure for now, but am I doing something wrong to make the service crash? or it is a known problem?

BTW: I am running the could service on windows 10 pro.

Any ideas? please help.

Bugs and Issues / Exporting GAP Analysis Issues
« on: March 22, 2017, 03:35:47 am »
Hi everyone,
I noticed that when I export a package from one model and import it to another model using XMI import, I  loose all the GAP Analysis Notes in the new model.
Anyone know why these GAP analysis notes do not come with the package export? is there is a way to export them too.


General Board / email notification
« on: March 18, 2017, 11:03:25 am »
Hi everyone,
Is there is a way to get automated notification from the SPARX EA's model discussions when I get a reply on my discussion topic.
It is annoying to have to go and manually check whether a post reply has been posted.

General Board / Element Status & Connector Status
« on: October 16, 2016, 03:57:27 am »
Hi Everyone,

Background: We setup SPARX as an organization wide/shared repository in one database instance. All projects has a separate package as their workspace.  We also have govern/trusted content on a separate package, so all projects can reuse and account in their project development.

The Element Status raised passionate discussions on our group. Some sees it as a life cycle status versus other proposing to use it to whether is trusted/verified, or work in progress.

So we need to:
* classify all elements and connectors whether trusted or WIP, or was trusted but no longer in use.
* We also know that projects will reuse these elements and might propose new connectors as a result of adding relationships to current state, or propose a relationship for a future, but yet still consider non-trusted because it is not yet governed, so we need to differentiate between what has been trusted, and its life cycle. also other projects might propose similar relationships between same elements, and we need to identify who is proposing what? and make sure projects can only see their own architecture elements and relationships (we doing this by using model views).

We looked at the Tagged Values for this, and it was strait forward, but it is time consuming and in some cases you need scripts to do bulk remove, but edits, and bulk adds (very error prone and labour intensive). The reason we looked at the Tagged Value as a solution is because connectors don't have a status attribute.

Any suggestion on how deal with such case? or are we completely off on this?

Another Question about the Element Status.

The "Proposed" Status is always the default one, and if I removed all the statuses from the project settings, and set new statuses, there is no way I can set a default status. so if "Proposed" is not part of the list, the default is always blank.

Is there is a ways to setup a default status that is not a "Proposed"?

Thank you for your help.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Model Search Scripting
« on: October 03, 2016, 11:18:19 am »
I am trying to create a script that takes selected elements from a "search list result" and apply certain functionality to these elements such as delete tagged values, update tagged value values, change status, etc...

Basically I want to automate certain updates to elements & connectors without having to go through the project browser.  I already have the SQL query that retrieved what I want.

And by the way, any ideas how to execute an SQL query in a script that return a collection where I can manuipulate?
