How do I publish package as UML profile?
« on: July 12, 2019, 02:39:39 am »
According to this help page on sparx systems, I can save a profile:

Specialize > Technologies > Publish > Publish Package as UML Profile

However, this option is not available. I only have the option to export a diagram as UML profile or create an MDG technology. How can I export my <<profile>> package as a UML Profile?

What version/build/edition of EA are you using?

Early 14 builds had only one export profile option. To export the package, just select it in the project browser and then run the export. If you want to ensure that you're exporting the package, close all diagrams before doing that. It could be a little temperamental, which is why later builds separated the options.

If you're on a later build and find the option isn't available, it could be because of the edition you're using. From memory it was only added to the ribbon for the unified/ultimate editions until we corrected it. The only solution I'm aware of if that's your problem is to update.

I have version 14.1.1427 build 1427.

That means I have to create a huge diagram and put all the elements on that single diagram in order to have a profile exported?

Yes, unless you have the ultimate version.
This was a bug that was fixed in v15
