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 / Re: [EA15.2] quicklinker to map attributes bug
« on: July 03, 2020, 11:10:40 pm »
I noticed another weird behaviour: when I first open a diagram and select a class attribute, the quicklinker from that attribute is not available.
But as soon as I use the quicklinker on the class, then the quicklinker on the attribute is available.

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 think this is a good idea, but you can sort of do that with a custom diagram so I'm guessing it won't be a high priority.


Thanks for the info Uffe. It's interesting to know that it can be specified in the diagram profile, however in my case I need to set it against a given stereotype.
So it's a nice to have feature, as users can in the meantime make sure they set the right language.

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?

I agree on having the info so it can be disabled if needed

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.



I found the solution ; there was an error in the PCS config file. It all works fine now.

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?


I made an attempt to review the list of tagged values for a class attribute or operation in Prolaborate.
The aim also is to manage the visible tagged values via the custom MDG that is used, which includes stereotyped attributes and operations.

I noticed that contrary to elements such as classes, Prolaborate doesn't currently show the tagged values. Can you confirm? If this something that could be supported in the future?


My client doesn't have any addin installed and I don't have eaMatic currently enabled on mine.


I have an Archimate MDG with a stereotyped association that can be created from a stereotyped Archimate Node to a stereotyped Application Component.
In the stereotyped association definition, I set the default direction to be unspecified.
I set metaconstraints and quicklinker rules (using the new relationships) so users can only create such association from the Node to the Application

When I created the association from the Application to the node, or vice versa, the association is properly set from the Node to the Application with the Direction set to unspecified. The issue I have is that a user has the exact same EAP file with the same EA build (1528), and when he creates the association from the Component to the Node, the direction is set to Source to Target (from Node to Component, he gets the unspecified direction as expected).

I tried to look at EA Preferences (links) but they match.

I can't figure out why we don't have the same behaviour.
