Geert - do you know if this issue exists in the time-aware modelling/cloning functions as well?

General Board / Re: Security Disabled - How to reset security

FYI, this appears to have been fixed/reset by updating the t_secpolicies table and disabling the UserSecurity Property.

General Board / Re: Basic Approval Workflow

EA simply doesn't have the necessary concepts to implement a propose-review-approve cycle.

Such a cycle typically includes the following steps:
  • Changes to a configuration item are proposed.
  • Proposed changes are submitted for review and approval.
  • Reviewers approve or reject changes.
  • A new version of the configuration item is released, or the item is reverted to the previous version.

EA doesn't have a concept of a configuration item in the first place, so everything else falls down.

Does anyone know whether the "Formal Review" functionality released by Sparx in verson 13.5 of EA supports this sort of cycle?

I had a quick look at this.  The short answer is no. 

But as "Formal Reviews" has only just been introduced in 13.5 perhaps it will be enhanced.

Anyhow, AFAIK the csv import can only import one dimension. The relation between elements needs to be added manually or with another script.

That's not completely true, a simple hierarchy is supported in the csv importer.  See

General Board / Re: Data Dictionary
« on: September 04, 2017, 07:03:38 pm »

It's none of those Roy.   The white paper is actually called "Data Modelling - From conceptual model to DBMS", which means you can't find it searching on "Data Dictionary".   

This is an official, albeit old, paper written by Sparx that was originally on the main Sparx site in the white papers section.  Not sure why it's been removed from there, perhaps because it's been superceded by more recent functionality in EA?

Anyway, it can still be found on the community site at this link    http://tinyurl.com/y9twq3sg

As I said before the data dictionary bit is in the appendix from page 16 onwards.   
As it's an old paper, use with caution.

Have you contacted support as suggested by Simon M. ?

Shouldn't you raise this as a formal support query and/or bug?

In that case you should probably report it formally to Sparx.

10

Time to submit enhancements requests then I think..  Further discussion here probably won't go anywhere.

11

Actually the correct version number also appears on the start page if you're using that.

12

Yes, it's irritating you have to go to Help/About EA to find out if it's really 13.5

13
For reference you might want to look at this thread

http://sparxsystems.com/forums/smf/index.php/topic,38290.msg

There is an acknowledged bug for which a fix is awaited.

14

Yes, but rumour has it that there is a fix coming in 13.5
