Suggestions and Requests / Dynamic Legends: text color support
« on: December 05, 2019, 12:17:42 am »
In EA 15, Legends have been improved so one can set a different value to check if an elements matches the condition from the displayed value
For instance if you set Apply auto color on the Class alias, you can set 1 in the Alias and display "Type 1", etc.

I can define the fill color, line color and line width. It would be useful to specific the text color e.g. white, black, red...

Suggestions and Requests / Multiple selection of RTF templates (to delete)

It would be nice to be able to select several templates in the Resources tabs to quickly delete them. I have a project with several templates to remove individually.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Missing FK in SQL Server DDL Import
« on: December 02, 2019, 06:48:49 pm »
Thank you for your replies. It appears that the DBA found some mistakes in the delivered schema so I'm waiting for a new file to test. Hopefully it will sort the few missing FK that I found, and confirming that it's not related with EA :)

Bugs and Issues / Missing FK in SQL Server DDL Import
« on: November 30, 2019, 12:53:30 am »
I ran a DB import from a local SQL Server DB and noticed that FK associations between tables are missing.
Creating a DB schema in SQL Server Management Studio, I can see all associations with 3 that are missing in EA. Is this a known issue?

In my ODBC DSN, I'm using the following ODBC driver: SQL Server native client 11.0 (SQL Server is v13.0). I also ran a test with the SQL Server 10.00 driver.

General Board / Re: RTF Generation: display tagged values only is populated
« on: November 29, 2019, 06:52:17 pm »
Thanks for the hint Geert. I'll give it a go.

Thank you all for your replies.

Sunshine: the XML comes from a custom tool so I have to address it via a specific solution (otherwise I indeed have a look first for existing 3rd party tools, although for other projects the license cost was much higher than the cost to develop a custom solution... but that's a different subject)

My script already uses whenever it is possible DB updates via the Repository.Execute method as it's improved the execution time (compared with the API).
From what I've gathered, C# seems to be a good candidate to address the XML processing.

If I get to build a similar solution with C#, I'll update this thread with the resulting performance.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Best language for bulk updates?
« on: November 29, 2019, 02:12:21 am »

I'm not sure there is a proper response for the following question...
Consider having to create and update multiple elements in your EA project by processing an external XML file (generated from a third party tool), including in depth synchronization.
I was wondering if there is any script language running in or outside EA that would be the most suitable and make a difference in terms of performance.

JScript in EA
Javascript in EA
Powershell (outside EA)

Or will they all more or less perform more or less the same?

General Board / Re: RTF Generation: display tagged values only is populated

Hi Geert,

I managed to get it to work with a small SQL fragment. Down side is that I have as many SQL fragment as tagged values I need to generate but it does the job.


PCS General Board / Prolaborate Default group

In a repository, there is a Default user group. What is it for and why can't I delete it? Is there a specific use?

General Board / RTF Generation: display tagged values only is populated
« on: November 27, 2019, 12:38:10 am »
I'm working with an RTF template and need to achieve the following: for an element in my package, display the Name and 2 tagged values e.g.
Property A : {Element.valueOf(tag1)}
Property B : {Element.valueOf(tag2)}
-> I want to remove the "Property A : " label when tag1 value is empty. Is there an option or workaround (fragments?)  to achieve that? All the filters that I found apply to elements, connectors or diagram, not a tagged value of the generated element.

Note: tagged values can be rendered with specific fonts or within a table (so I don't want to generate the table when the tagged value is empty).

Bugs and Issues / EA15 dynamic legend affects shapescripts
« on: November 26, 2019, 09:05:26 pm »
I have a stereotyped class with a Shapescript definition that sets the line color to red when the Alias is empty.
It works well except when I add a dynamic legend that only applies to the connectors (the element Apply options are all disabled) -> the line color is reset to Black.
This applies to the latest EA15 build 1513

Note: a nice improvement on the diagram legends is that we now have a new "display value" field :)

PCS General Board / Re: Customise the Help links in Prolaborate
« on: November 26, 2019, 05:24:52 pm »
Where dashboards can provide helps links, the Help button is very useful as it's available from any page and users can be invited to use it.
Currently it only provides links to public sites (Prolaborate help, forum, etc.) however I think it would be useful to customize it or provide a way to add custom links.
Could it be considered for a future release?

General Board / Re: DB Visibility Levels support with Postgres
« on: November 19, 2019, 09:45:42 pm »

Yes, my understanding is that it works with EA when I connect to the EA DB via the PCS.
However based on this link, this seems to require the Ultimate edition; does it apply to all the clients or only to an EA Admin (question for Sparx) ?

PCS General Board / Prolaborate access stats
« on: November 19, 2019, 06:57:34 pm »

Prolaborate displays the active user sessions. Does it store this information so activity stats can be identified from Prolaborate database?
Or do you recommend to use the standard IIS logs and any logs stats tool like AWStats?

PCS General Board / Customise the Help links in Prolaborate
« on: November 18, 2019, 11:15:25 pm »
In Prolaborate, there's a "?" (top right corner) to open the HELP with a number of links available: Online help, Forums, About...

Is there an easy way to amend this list? We'd like to remove some links whilst adding one to a local help intranet url with information on Prolaborate and EA usage.
