Batch XMI Import

You can import a group of Controlled Packages from XMI into Enterprise Architect in one step.

As the system processes each Package, it updates the 'Status' column against each Package name on the 'Batch XMI Import' dialog.

  • If the import is successful, Enterprise Architect updates the Package status to 'Imported'
  • If the import is unsuccessful, Enterprise Architect updates the Package status to 'Not Imported'

Common reasons for an import to fail include:

  • The Package not being correctly configured
  • The last import file date matches the import date of the file currently on disk

Access

Ribbon

Publish > Model Exchange > Import XMI > Batch Import Controlled Packages

Notes

  • To avoid re-importing the same module multiple times, select the Check file date before import checkbox; Enterprise Architect then does not import a file if the last import file date matches that of the one currently on disk
