in EA15, working on a uml deployment diagram the deploy type was removed from the quick linker list, still we were able to grab this type from the toolbox and use it on the diagram.

Now in EA15.1 this is even worst, the rules engine is not allowing to use the deploy type from any element to a node. I tried to use this connection from artifacts and components to a node and both show the same issue.

In another topic I found the workaround by going to preferences and disabling the strict connector syntax option.

I still think this is a bug because that kind of connection artifact deploy to a node is alllowed in UML.

My understanding of the UML spec is that you are correct. A Deployment goes from a DeployedArtifact (Artifact or InstanceSpecification) to a DeploymentTarget (Node, InstanceSpecification or Property).

I'm sorry to report running into exactly this bug in 15.1.1526.  :(

Can anyone confirm whether this bug is fixed in EA 15.2?

If so, I will ask IT to package the latest version of EA to fix it...

I just tried in 15.2 with Artifact, Artifact instance, and Object as source, Node, Node instance, Object and Part as target, and all combinations were permitted. When dragging into empty space, only Node and its specializations (Device and ExecutionEnvironment) were suggested by the quicklinker.
