As an enterprise solution integrator, InfiniSolution is proud to share an Architect Bootstrap external plugin.
With Enterprise Architect Bootstrap, you now have the possibility to share references to specific enterprise diagrams or to complete views with simple html hyperlinks. The concept is simple but the benefit is huge. This feature lets you easily share your Enterprise Architect documentation and diagrams on different support, such as websites, emails and chat with minimal efforts.
Your html documentation can also be enhanced with a GUID identifier reference allowing you to navigate between the documentation and the Enterprise Architect program. For more information, please visit our website for videos and an online sample.
The plugin is usable with no installation and no administrator right on the client computer. Everything takes place into a Java Web Start component which starts Enterprise Architect, opens the targeted diagrams and explodes the project navigator at the right place.
Functionality and Benefits
- Allows you to create hyperlinks referring your business diagrams;
- Build sharable hyperlinks from current user views;
- Refer and auto navigate in the project explorer to a resource by its identifier (GUID);
- Enhance existing generated html documentation with a simple JS file;
- No installation required.
eaForms" is a simple to use, configurable, element properties editor that can help both the new EA user get started and the EA expert become more productive.
By ensuring that the information in the edit form is relevant to the task and user, eaForms can reduce barriers when introducing EA and help ensure the integrity and quality of your models.
Whilst for the EA expert consolidating information onto a single form, coupled with pre-defined selection options, can greatly speed the process of creating or editing elements.
Using eaForms you can:
- configure editor content per element type - to meet project and users' needs
- consolidate information onto a single form - to provide greater visibility of relevant information
- define the layout - to helps user workflow
- limit choices to pre-defined values - to help drive consistency and speed editing
- mandate item entries - to ensure completeness
- provide context sensitive help - to give guidance where needed
- manage look and feel - to give users a better visual experience
When deleting items (Views, Packages, Elements or Diagrams) from a repository, Enterprise Architect warns the user that the delete action is irreversible, however, Enterprise Architect’s delete functionality can pose some challenges for the unaware:
The wording of the warnings: If a user deletes an item from a diagram (Ctrl + Del), then the warning indicates that the process cannot be undone. However if does not warn that any children will also be deleted. If a user deletes an item from the Project Browser (Ctrl + Del or Right-click Delete), then the warning indicates that the process will delete all children, but does not warn that the process cannot be undone. Enterprise Architect provides no indication as to the effect that deleting an item from the repository may have on other items in the repository. For example, which diagrams refer to this item, and what relationships exist between this item and other items. As the delete process cannot be undone, mistakes cannot be rectified easily.
Functionality and Benefits
EA SafeDelete is an extension to Enterprise Architect that can improve model governance by helping customers understand the consequence of deleting a model element by:
Providing totals of:
- The number of diagrams which refer to the element being deleted
- The number of composite elements that link to a diagram being deleted
- The number of Interaction Occurrences that link to the diagram being deleted
- The number of elements related to the element being deleted
- The number of elements where the element is being used as a classifier
- The number of occurrences where this element is used as a type
- The number of children (including any diagrams) that the element has
- Providing the functionality to empty the re-cycle bin (that is remove all items currently in the re-cycle bin from the model repository
- Providing the functionality to restore an item (and its children) from the re-cycle bin
- Providing the functionality to restore all items (and their children) from the re-cycle bin
- Providing the option to enable / disable EA SafeDelete’s functionality
When an Enterprise Architect user selects to delete a Package, Element or Diagram from the repository, EA SafeDelete “intercepts” the action, analyses the consequences of the delete and provides a Consequences Summary Screen (image attached). The user can then select to investigate further, by clicking any of the enabled Show Details buttons which will provide details of the selected consequence.
The user can then use the dialog to locate any of the items in the lists, by selecting the item and then selecting Find in Project Browser. EA SafeDelete provides the Enterprise Architect user with all the consequence information so that they can make an informed decision as to whether the item should be deleted from the repository or moved to a re-cycle bin. If the user selects to move an item to the re-cycle bin, EA SafeDelete will do exactly that and the item will not be removed from the repository.
EA Navigator is a free, open-source (BSD License) add-in for Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect that enhances the experience of any Enterprise Architect user.
EA Navigator facilitates quick navigation between different elements in a model, especially between those elements that are not immediately apparent using standard EA features.
Using Enterprise Architect's dockable add-in window, EA Navigator retains a history of the 50 last selected model elements, and shows the important related elements at a glance.
Use the add-in to navigate between:
- Operations and Sequence diagrams
- Operations and their implementation (Behavior)
- Operations and CallOperationActions
- Types and Parameters
- Types and Attributes
- And to any Fully Qualified Name (FQN) that has been copied to the clipboard.
eaUtils is a free utilities addin for Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect modelling tool. It provides a number of features to help go further with Sparx Enterprise Architect.
In its initial version 1.0, eaUtils has focused on a range of element's sorting features, updating the default sorting order from the Project Browser. eaUtils also provides a diagram breadcrumb trail generation to simplify navigation between linking diagrams. eaUtils is maintained by Guillaume FINANCE, who runs www.umlchannel.com blog, dedicated to modelling and Sparx Enterprise Architect, and member of the European EA User Groups.

Inteca OpenAPI Plug-in for Enterprise Architect
One of the main elements of architecture that are managed are the models of services provided in the organisation. Components and services are designed in UML language in a uniform way, regardless of the target implementation method (e.g. REST or SOAP). The designer focuses on understanding the domain model and designing services in a way that will give the greatest benefit and convenience to consumers. Finished models are converted to executable specifications (WSDL, XSD, OpenAPI/Swagger) using Inteca Plug-ins. Then it can be tested in the API portal. This approach combines the features of modern, agile API design and implementation with elements of architectural governance required by large organisations, where there are a number of dependencies between many projects, components and suppliers. The key here is good dependency management and unified modelling method. OpenAPI Plugin allows to generate OpenAPI 2.0/Swaggerspecifications from UML model.Functionality and Benefits
- Generating OpenAPI 2.0 / Swagger specifications based on EA models
- Built-in UML / Swagger type mapping with customized configuration
- API call example editor based on the UML modelApproximately 75 Words
Inteca Versioning Plug-in for Enterprise Architect
The Inteca Versioning Plug-in provides a number of functionalities that support Enterprise Architect, especially when working with large repositories, whose consistency and timeliness is very important for analysts and IT architects in the enterprise. The plug-in extends EA with the following functionalities:
- Versioning of entire packages (called assets)
- Change of dependencies between versions of assets
- Displaying diagrams for versioned elements
- Analysis of the contents of the architecture state in order to quickly analyse the elements related to the architecture increment (represented as a plateau), a mechanism displaying a report has been implemented
- Release of an architectural state (increment)
- Generating a documentation model
- Compare with baseline
- Concurrent modelling of several versions of the same model in a single repository
- Managing version dependencies
- Support for Sprint / Iteration / Release analysis and management (content analysis, changes)
- Documentation generation for Version / Sprint / Release
- Automatic version update in diagrams
- Handling hyperlinks in notes and documents
- Version Diff mechanism – advanced comparison of model versions (filters, search, export to Excel)

Take Control of Enterprise Architect
Model Guardian, the Framework & Model Management System, makes the process of framework development and model synchronization as easy as possible.
Model Guardian provides a user interface that intuitively guides you through the process of framework development, including toolboxes, quicklinks and a lot more. It even manages framework versions, including automatic archival and retrieval processing.
Models are synchronized with the latest version of the framework, keeping them from becoming obsolete. Models created without Model Guardian can be synchronized with and brought under framework management. Broad, sweeping changes to models can be made, like changing a stereotype of all elements having that stereotype.
Yours or Ours
With Model Guardian, you can build your own frameworks or start with one of ours, e.g., the (EA) Enterprise Architecture Modeling Framework, and modify it to fit your environment.
For more information, go to: www.ModelGuardian.com.
