Project transfer RDBMS to File
« on: October 24, 2019, 01:36:52 am »
I am trying to use Project Transfer to create a copy of our repository into an EAP file, to test some changes to our MDG  before rolling it out to our production environment. But keep hitting the same problem, after configuring the source and target connections I keep getting a dialog box asking for a log in to the repository. None of the following works: the user id to connect Sparx to the repository, my window user id, or the admin user id.

What am I missing?

P.S.: The RDBMS is PostGreSQL, Sparx in production is v13, and group security is enabled.

Try an empty target EAP you create first and which you're sure you can open.

If you get a dialog box asking only for a password, that means EA can't connect to your database.

You get the same dialog if you disconnect your computer from the network

An empty EAP fixed the problem. Obviously the dialogue box was not referring to our RDBMS but to the local file/Jet Engine.

Thanks for your help, I would not have figure this one out easily.
