I am developing a roadmap between Baseline to the Target architecture.
If there are multiple (legacy )application components converging to the same (Target ) component, how can we depict it in  a roadmap.
Can I draw an association between each legacy component to the Target component, with a source to destination arrow or is there some way better.

Thanks for all the help provided in this forum folks.


Can I show a dependency between 2 Application components (both are Archimate 3 Application components) using quick Link ?  If yes  is there any particular property the quick link needs to have ?

Thanks in advance

How can I use quick link (or any other method) to connect 2 objects if these are not on the same screen ?


I am building a roadmap between Baseline and Target Architecture. However one application component can only be displayed once in the roadmap. In this case there are a number of baseline components that are converging to this Target Application component. How can I show this application convergence in the roadmap ?


General Board / Can I use Export/Import for a single component ?

Can I use the Export/Import (to CSV) for a single component like a class ? for example import multiple components but not the complete diagram in Sparx ?

I am asking the question as the database of company applications including data like  application sunset date and other metadata is maintained in a different system for a number of applications. I need to  import is as a csv in Sparx.

Another question.
How is the metadata (for example Application EOL date) treated by Sparx, if it has not been defined in it.


Can I create a roadmap between a baseline architecture diagram and a target architecture diagram between that are in 2 different packages ?


Hi ,
I wanted to get an advise on best practice for the following:
1. For an enterprise, are the Baseline Architecture diagrams and Target Architecture diagrams in the same package or different package ?
(I kept both in the same Package, however I note that if I change one application component in Target Architecture it also  changes corresponding  component in Baseline architecture as well). In this case it is not required, as I wanted to show the enhancement in Target Architecture.

Thanks in advance for your advise

General Board / Sparx Best Practices doc ?
« on: May 17, 2019, 01:11:42 am »
Dear All ,
For a user that had all the EA diagrams stored in MS Power Point and Spreadsheets and is moving to standardize on Sparx, is there a 'best practices' manual or document that I can refer to ? Mainly the first phase is to move all the diagrams to Sparx and draw a Sparx roadmap between Target and Baseline architecture. The objective is that we should be using Sparx for lifecycle, after moving on Sparx and not rely on Powerpoint and Excel Spreadsheets from now on.

Thanks in Advance

General Board / Resizing a Sparx diagram

Is there any way to resize a Sparx diagram and fit it in a page ? 

General Board / Importing data from LeanIX into Sparx
« on: May 14, 2019, 02:03:20 am »
Is there a way we can import LeanIX data into Sparx ? Some of the EA Data was being used in LeanIX and rather then manually entering in Sparx EA, I am looking at ways to import it  from LeanIX.

Thanks in advance

I am dragging a class in the parent class. The child class name  is being preceded by the parent name by default in the diagram. Can someone point me the option I need to use  in order to have only child class name in the child class  ? I have checked the properties, attributes etc and cannot seem to find it .It is being printed as parent classname :: child class name

Thanks in advance
