General Board / View Query Builder query as SQL
« on: September 05, 2018, 09:30:06 am »
Is it possible view a query builder query as SQL?

I'm trying to develop a query for a document along the lines of

Keywords IS NULL OR Keywords LIKE "<value> OR Keywords LIKE "<anothervalue>"



General Board / Generate documents based on element tag
« on: August 03, 2018, 11:29:27 am »
Has any generated document by using tags?

I've got the idea of retricting the elements in a document by generating a document using tagged values.

For example the model document only generated from elements where to tags are specified, or one of a specific set of tags is applied to the element?



Bugs and Issues / Searching using a famous search engine
« on: June 21, 2017, 07:17:54 am »
I was using a famous search engine to search for the phrase "sparx database engineering".
The first result returned was

Now here's the thing.
It would be preferable if the documentation for the latest version was returned, viz

My recommendation
  • search engines should be restricted from seeing anything other than the latest version of a page
  • on the page itself links to previous versions of pages should be provided, perhaps in a  margin
On a related note, I often link from our documentation to Sparx documentation,
to reduce ongoing maintenance it would be useful have an option such as

General Board / Using relationship matrix
« on: March 09, 2017, 10:59:18 am »
A couple of questions about Relationship matrices, I'm stuck on 12.1 at the moment, in case I missed the instructions.

Is it possible to add a RM to Model View Working set, this would be very convenient

It would be handy to easily swap source and target

In options there is an option to include source/target children, but it is really an option to include child packages, and option to include/exclude nested child entities would also be of use?



Suggestions and Requests / Diagram in Linked document
« on: November 25, 2016, 06:41:33 am »
EA allows links to Diagrams in Linked document.

And I quote
Linked documents are intimately associated with specific elements, but you can also create hyperlinks in the document directly to other elements in the model. Having followed the link, you can perform any normal operation on that element.
Similarly, you can create new elements or diagrams to link to.
It would be even better if rather than just a hyperlink to a diagram the actual diagram itself could be included and updated in the linked document each time the document is generated.


Bugs and Issues / Images cropped in generated document

Has anyone observed an issue like this where images are truncated/cropped in a generated document

Build 1307, images are included using a diagram fragment.

General Board / V13: colour dialogues
« on: November 22, 2016, 12:20:54 pm »
Colour dialogues

For a brief minute I hoped that colour dialogues had become more consistent, and been improved, viz from the ribbon and in the note editor

But no change from the diagram context menu, for example

I'm looking forward to the 'in diagram' colour menus being updated

General Board / Exclude element type from ModelView List
« on: August 22, 2016, 02:24:19 pm »
I have just started using ModelView lists on a diagram.

I have the default query with two attributes removed, and would like to exclude Note elements from the list
Code: [Select]
SELECT t_object.ea_guid AS CLASSGUID, t_object.Object_Type AS CLASSTYPE, t_object.Name
FROM t_object INNER JOIN (t_diagram INNER JOIN t_diagramobjects ON t_diagram.Diagram_ID = t_diagramobjects.Diagram_ID)
ON t_object.Object_ID = t_diagramobjects.Object_ID
WHERE t_diagram.ea_guid='{61343AF8-BEDE-4782-B0A9-72E8F32131BE}' ORDER by t_object.Name



Bugs and Issues / DB Permissions for Project transfer
« on: June 17, 2016, 11:34:09 am »
We are creating a new SQL Server repository.
Our DB created the database and executed the EA schema SQL.
I then attempted to open the new repository and as expected received a prompt to transfer an existing project in.
I, like all users, have read-write access to the repository.
I get an error. "Cannot find the object "t_category" because it does not exist or you do not have permissions.
Yet I can see the table using SQL Server management studio.

Do I need initial additional permissions for this step?

Suggestions and Requests / EA 13 beta edit diagram
« on: June 05, 2016, 08:35:10 am »

I'm finding the new ribbons quite usable, and its great to see icons

The new "layout" ribbon seems to be the best one to have available when working on a diagram.

A request please to consider having the items under the edit drop down immediately accessible (e.g. as small icons), rather than being an extra click away.
Specifically the copy and paste options.

Also, to the right of the ribbon tabs is a search with the title "find command". Please consider providing a mapping of command to ribbon and section within ribbon (similar to the Keyboard accelerator map).

There are still toolbars, such as workspace layout. I'd like to be able to dock them in a ribbon or say with the project browser.

General Board / Actor classifier and instance
« on: June 03, 2016, 02:37:04 pm »

I have an actor (classifier) on a diagram - in rectangular notation.
I wanted to replace it with instance (to represent a specific type of actor).

How do I give the instance rectangular notation (i.e. make it look the same as the classifier was)?

Bugs and Issues / Locating linked documents
« on: May 04, 2016, 11:44:40 am »
A significant issue exists when trying to update the normal.rtf styles to our corporate standard.
Its not enough to simply update all the user templates.
Every linked document requires its styles to be updated as well, otherwise the results are undefined (Word does not handle well multiple redefinitions of a style when it comes to numbering schemes (multi-level lists).

My question is:
Can I use "Find in Project" (<ctrl>-f) to locate all linked documents?

General Board / 1229 document whitespace handling
« on: April 12, 2016, 08:52:01 am »
Just a big big ups for the girls and boys who removed all the superfluous white space that was previously inserted in generated documents.
In my mind this is a significant improvement to moving towards being able the create "final" version documents from EA without further editing.
