General Board / Re: Collaboration with business on EA

eaDocX looks pretty much along the lines of what I was hoping for. :-)
And that's a good idea about hyperlinking into collaboration tools. Clearly, it will need the operational overlay, but it's a great start.
Thank you

Thanks, folks - that is a lot of information, and I'll have a play with what you've suggested.
And yes, Word, unfortunately, does rule ;-)
Thanks again.

Thanks for your response, Peter.
1. Yes, we did think that a report would help - the problem there is that it may need to align with the need expressed in (2)
2. And yes, we have been looking at some sort of import/ export. Here, our challenge is that our stakeholders need to work with the formats that we can import on (typically XML), and our experience in importing these files is that it is not friendly to multiple concurrent updates. Ideally, a view into the EA model, without the 'technical look and feel' would be great. But then, we run into the dependency in (3)
3. Yes, though it depends on the mechanism used in (1)/ (2)
4. Makes sense. We had not thought of going into the SQL, but that does sound reasonable. Sorry, newbie question perhaps, but do you know of any resources that can help us get an understanding of the EA db design

Hope that makes things clearer. Appreciate your looking into this.

We have a need to model a registry, where we can maintain relationships between documented and co-dependent application services, technical services, business services, and domains. This feels like something we can do in EA.
However, once we have it modelled out, we also need to:
1. Publish sections out to technical & business peers (latter of whom typically glaze over, and quietly pass out, when presented with 'technical' diagrams)
2. Allow peers to comment, or contribute
3. Moderate/ govern entries into the model
4. Analyse (or RAG-status) services based on defined qualities of service
Do you know how we can achieve this with EA, or are there other tools that will work with EA to make this happen, please?
Any guidance appreciated.
EA version: 11.1.1112

General Board / Not getting the 'Paste' dialog box
« on: February 25, 2014, 11:56:32 pm »
As per the http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/10/modeling_basics/pastingfromthetree.html, I should be getting a dialog box when I drag an element into a sequence diagram. However, what I see is that an instance gets created by default, without any dialog box, and I get only the 'Structural Elements' dialog box (even though the element in question does not have child elements). What I'd like is to be able to decide whether an instance gets created or not, which seems to be how the 'paste' dialog should work, but I'm not getting the option. Am I missing some configuration entry? Any help would be appreciated.

I am using Sparx Enterprise Architect 10.0.1006, Ultimate Edition

Bugs and Issues / BSD when generating PDF
« on: October 07, 2014, 07:42:06 pm »
When generating a PDF from EA (10.0.1010, build 1010, Database version 4.01), I get a blue screen of death.
I am on 32 bit Win 7 Enterprise, Intel i5, 4GB RAM.
Does anyone know what could be causing this, and is there a resolution available, please?
