I saw the webinar too, and asked a few questions which I am hoping will be answered. Certainly a lot of advancement with 64 bit and a migration path for EAP, but the direction seems to me to be emphasizing the development platform aspects.

OK, thanks, I guess I didn't realise the implication of connecting an AD group to a EA licence key group => no password.
And as I noted nothing I was told made the connection either.
Since we only have one group of users I hadn't seen any use for this connection,
I might try it, perhaps I can connect the default group with an AD group.

I jumped in to correct this misinformation.
Note there is one irritant with the PCS KS. It requires a user id and password, DAMY.

If you specify one or more active directory groups in the corresponding group for the keystore service then the server will authenticate the user against those active directory groups to determine inclusion in each group and the corresponding entitlements of the user requesting a license.

If you don't link to any active directory groups, then yes you will need to provide the user id and password defined for the group.
Thankyou, this was information that I was not supplied by support when I raised this issue, and not apparent to me over multiple viewings of the documentation. Could you please point to the documentation that describes how to set this up?

I don't know if it helps, but EA has licences,
PCS has session tokens (only needed for the paid services such as WebEA. The licence server is tokenless, as is EA model connections via PCS).
Eve is talking about WebConfig - Floating License Groups | Enterprise Architect User Guide (sparxsystems.com)

Maybe we are talking at cross purposes.



If my understanding is correct all authentication is done in the EA client against the model or using AD.
At least that's how it works for us.

No, the licence server has no connection to AD.
It doesn't really do anything, because getting a licence doesn't influence what permissions you have in the model.
We just told everyone in our instructions for connecting to the LS what the user name and password is.

Only once, when you first set up the connection to the key server.
In the EA in Register > Add Key > Get Shared Key > Shared Keystore ... > Sparx Keystore Server

Are you using WebEA?
What DB are you using for the model?
Does your EA client use the same database and model?

I see EA is going to be announced.
Do we have any idea of the release timeline?
I was just about to embark on our annual (and expensive) packaging of EA and I'd delay it if ...

PCS Bugs and Issues / PCS: Link to specific page
« on: August 19, 2021, 10:59:05 am »
When browsing a model using PCS how can I share a specific page in the model, e.g. a diagram, with another user?
The URL in the address bar does not seem to vary while navigating through the model?

PCS Frequently Asked Questions / Re: WebEA token usage
« on: August 13, 2021, 05:40:46 am »
You are correct that logging out releases the token. (whos going to remember to do that right?)
And that the timeout starts when you close the browser session.

In response to my (repeated) request to sales - who uncharacteristically did not acknowledge or respond, and then eventually support,
I got acknowledgement and then a response from support
"The website has been adjusted to clearly state User = User Session ".

Note that this may not be what you think you paid for, but sales have been silent on this.

PCS Frequently Asked Questions / Re: WebEA token usage
« on: August 12, 2021, 07:44:12 am »
I'm interested in this as well. How can we see who is using tokens and how do we manually release a token?
You can't, and you can't.
They time out after 30 minutes.
