General Board / Document Fragments
« on: November 30, 2016, 12:24:59 pm »
Hi,

I've read that you can embed document fragments within Fragments, yet I'm unable to find any documentation on this!

I've got a document fragment, which is generated using a Custom Query, is it possible to then embed another document Fragment that is also based upon another Custom Query using the Object_ID from the parent fragment? If so how do I pass the parent object_id to the child document fragment?

General Board / Re: Template Fragment issue

Thanks Simon, this work fine.

Any idea about my second query on getting Template Fragment to appear in a table like format when there are multiple occurrences of an object?

General Board / Template Fragment issue
« on: November 10, 2016, 05:32:35 am »
Hi,

We're current documenting using ArchiMate 2.0 within Sparx EA v11.  I have a need to report upon a View and each object displayed within the View, showing different information based upon the type of ArchiMate object. So I did a bit of reading and Template Fragments seemed to be solution?

So I created my report and template fragment 'selector' which has the following Template Selector definitions:
Class:ArchiMate_Plateau:Fragment-InitiativeDictionary-Plateau
Class:ArchiMate_WorkPackage:Fragment-InitiativeDictionary-WorkPackage
Class:ArchiMate_Goal:Fragment-InitiativeDictionary-Goal
Class:ArchiMate_Requirement:Fragment-InitiativeDictionary-Requirement
Class:ArchiMate_Value:Fragment-InitiativeDictionary-Value
Class:ArchiMate_Constraint:Fragment-InitiativeDictionary-Constraint
Class:ArchiMate_BusinessFunction:Fragment-InitiativeDictionary-BusinessFunction
Class:ArchiMate_BusinessService:Fragment-InitiativeDictionary-BusinessService

Class:ArchiMate_BusinessObject:Fragment-InitiativeDictionary-BusinessObject

This appears to work great, and for each of the ArchiMate object gets rendered differently, with the exception of two. ArchiMate_BusinessFunction & ArchiMate_BusinessService, I've tried different ways of getting these to render, but they only show if I use a default option. What's weird is if I change the Class name to another ArchiMate class, then this class is rendered using the specified fragment but still doesn't work for the two specified ArchiMate classes, any ideas?

Also, if you've got multiple objects and you want to show these within a table how would you do this?

General Board / Basic Approval Workflow
« on: November 07, 2016, 07:59:48 am »
Hi All,

New to EA, but have knowledge of other EA Modelling tools.

What's the best way to implement a Basic Approval workflow? The requirement is quite easy, when a user changes something they wish to get this approved (e.g. business process change).

Unsure how this would be invoked, so any guidance would be really helpful
