This error shows up when the database schema did not run properly. Please run the compatible database schema on the Prolaborate database as per the instructions below and try again.

If you are seeing this error after installing Prolaborate, run the Install schema on the Prolaborate database. And if you are seeing this error after an upgrade, run the Upgrade schema on the Prolaborate database.

Was EA database used while installing Prolaborate? Are these tables [AccessRights table and t_attribute table] present in the Prolaborate database?
If yes, the databases are configured incorrectly.

Kindly follow the steps to configure a new database for Prolaborate application.
  • Create an empty database called Prolaborate
  • Choose MySQL/Microsoft SQL Install schema from this page based on the database server used for Prolaborate
  • Run the chosen schema in the new database
  • Open Prolaborate Service Management.exe and update the database details (Typically located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Prolaborate\ProlaborateServiceManagement)

  • Go to Prolaborate Health checks page and check whether there are no issues
  • Go back to Access Permissions page and check

  • Visit this link and download the Prolaborate installer using the credentials in your Pro Cloud Server document
  • Stop all Prolaborate services and processes (All services and processes starting with Prolaborate and websocketd process) from Task Manager
  • From the downloaded Prolaborate folder, run Setup.exe as administrator and complete the installation. Note there would be a brief wait time after you click on Next.
  • Check Prolaborate Versions in the Health Checks page. If there is a mismatch between current and latest versions, run the latest database schema on the Prolaborate database from the Release Notes page based on the database server used for Prolaborate.

PCS Frequently Asked Questions / [Charts] "No Elements Found" issue
« on: March 10, 2020, 12:02:44 am »
Here are the scenarios that could lead to this error and steps to handle it:

EA database on Microsoft SQL server:

Is the Data Type ntext rather than nvarchar in the attribute table? (Refer below screenshot).


If it's ntext, you need to upgrade the schema to the latest version and this issue should be resolved.

We have two options to resolve this issue.

Option #1:
  • Take a backup of the EA repository without fail
  • Visit this link and download the database schema under Updating earlier DBMS schemas section. Ensure to choose the right schema!
  • Run the upgrade schema
  • Do an integrity check
  • Check if you are able to access this model using EA and Prolaborate without any issues


Option #2:
  • Create an empty database
  • Visit this link and download the database schema under Enterprise Architect Schema Creation Scripts section. Ensure to choose the right schema
  • Run the latest DB schema
  • Do a project transfer from existing DB to this one (EA should be handling all the conversions smoothly)
  • Configure this DB in PCS and Prolaborate. Check if everything is working fine

EA Database on PostgreSQL server
Run this query on each of your EA databases:
Code: [Select]
create extension hstore
EA database on Firebird server
It will not work in Prolaborate as that database server is not supported yet.
You can host your EA models on a supported database server.

No elements present in the selected packges
Ensure there are indeed objects available inside the packages that you have selected on the left.
