Thank you for you nice recommendation. I will give it a try.

To answer your question about the need of such feature for EA...

To make diagrams readable by business and IT decision makers, it is important to not mix too many kinds of relationships on the same diagram, and yet... we need to show all information that we want to convey.

Sample diagram where such feature is needed:
An information flow between business functions where the applications supporting (connected to) each business function appear on the business function shape.

122
Let's say we have several Application Components that realize (they are connected to) some Business Function.

A key requirements for Enterprise Architecture is the ability to show the application component names directly on business function shapes.

Do we have a generic solution to show names of connected items directly on shapes?
I can't find anyway to do this on Shapescript.
Do we need some add-in?
Do we have any shared code available to do this?

NB: This capability should be built in Sparx

Does anybody know in which table(s) the model searches are stored?

Thank you very much for your quick answer. This is quite interesting. However it can't be a problem with the license as we did enter the license (shared key, which is not ideal for scheduled job I agree) beforehand and there are other scheduled jobs that are running fine (Project Transfer and Export to Excel).

We have some trouble publishing as HTML using a scheduler on Windows Server.
Our schedulers can export to Excel, create a Project Transfer et... but not an HTML report.
Does anybody have similar problems and knows how to fix this?
Thank you,
Alain

Here are the symptoms:

We wrote a c# program that does a runHTMLReport.

When the programme is launched via a bat file in command line it works fine.

When the same bat file is used by the windows tasks scheduler: the process is launched, we see the EA process starting in the tasks manager, but it ends quickly without generating anything. This is happening either when launched as a local admin user or the service user.

We modified the program to run as Timer class, replacing the windows scheduler tasks inside the program. It works fine launched as me. The problem is it stops if we logoff. Using the runas command to run it as the service user doesn’t work. We get back a message “Attempting to start EAGenerateDocumentation.bat as user …” but nothing happens.

We modified again the program to use TopShelf to turn it as a service. In command line it runs fine, but installed as service, it doesn’t do anything.

Does anybody know how to add intellisense for Excel objects in VBscript?
Any type library that needs to be integrated?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / _tagGroupStates in MDG
« on: May 24, 2016, 06:42:16 pm »
I have grouped tags in 2 MDGs as described here:
http://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/12.1/building_models/define_tag_groupings.html

The grouping works fine but the resulting behaviour of the _tagGroupStates is random. When we click on any element, the groups open or closed do not comply with the specification of the _tagGroupStates in our MDGs.

Is there any workaround?

Thanks

Alain

For a specific element or Connector stereotype that is defined in some MDG...

How can we iterate through the list of defined tagged value groups, names and value types
without having an instance of this type of element of connector?

129
I sent this today as a bug report as this is actually a bug.

And I give you five.

130
Thank you. Very good idea.

When including scripts in an MDG, how can I define the script group (diagram, project browser...) that each script belongs to?

This is to work around the following problem:
When an MDG is activated by an end user, the scripts contained in the MDG are all part of the Normal group.
I would expect that all deployed scripts would keep their original script group i.e. the script group defined in the MDG Technology model.

132
Is there a way to create, by script, a dictionary object that contains the Security groups that the current user belongs to?

Cheers,

Alain

In our repository, Auto Naming and Auto Counter are activated for the following classifiers:
- Requirements
- Use Cases
As a result, Auto Naming and Auto Counter also apply to any stereotype of these classifiers.
For example, a "UC" prefix is applied to new element that are stereotyped use cases though the stereotype is not meant to represent a use case.

Is there any way to get Auto Naming and Auto Counter settings that are specific to each stereotype?

135
Thank you Geert. As suggested, I will send a feature request.Then I will try to develop patience by concentrating on breathing.
