Bugs and Issues / Can I use Images in Legend
« on: February 07, 2017, 10:20:38 am »
Any thoughts How I can use an image in diagram Legend . My intention is to make clear what each object is that I have used in the diagram , for eg., Application Service , application interface , Aggregation relationship etc .
Please note : while it makes sense to someone who understands EA and Archimate , I might have to provide a bit more detail on what each of the element I have used .
I'm after something like this link  (please see the legend in the diagram)

Bugs and Issues / Re: Search in packages
« on: February 07, 2017, 10:16:48 am »
I used the Ctrl + F which brought me the "Find in Project" Window . I used the default options in there
"Common Searches" , "Simple", "<search Term>"

Bugs and Issues / Search in packages
« on: February 07, 2017, 08:32:11 am »
I have a model where I added 2 packages in it . when I searched for an element while I'm in one package , EA doesn't list me the element present in the other package . Is this a limitation with sparx Search , if not can someone point me to the steps.

thanks

General Board / Gap Analysis Matrix
« on: December 07, 2016, 02:28:18 pm »
A few questions on Gap analysis matrix . I use version 12.1.1230

1. Is there a setting that preserves the formatting of Gap analysis matrix . Every time I format the rows and columns to be in  my view , when I come back to it Ill have to re-do it
2. Is there any method to export a Gap analysis matrix or include it in the generated document

It will be also good if we are allowed to color code cells in the Matrix

General Board / TIBCO NIMBUS feature
« on: October 31, 2016, 09:10:44 am »
Hello,
I haven't experimented this , but know from few others that NIMBUS does allow you to access the model from Web browser once its published so an operational user can access the business process for reference . Does Enterprise Architect have such feature ?

Thanks Suresh

General Board / Re: Gap Analysis - Baseline and Target Packages
« on: October 20, 2016, 04:36:20 pm »
Thought I'll clarify a bit more on this question . These are the steps I currently use to do a GAP analysis

1.   In the Model create a new view
2.   Baseline
a.   Add a new package for Baseline
b.   Add all components or elements for baseline under the baseline package. This includes both parent and child elements
c.   Use a Relationship matrix to setup the relationship between parent and child elements
3.   Target
a.   Add a new package for Target
b.   Add all components or elements for Target as *new elements* under the Target package. This includes both parent and child elements
c.   Use a Relationship matrix to setup the relationship between parent and child elements
4.   Gap Analysis
a.   Use the Gap analysis matrix and choose the baseline package for baseline and target package for target


My question is ,
Instead of creating new components each time (refer 2.b and 3.b above) can I not have a library where I create all these elements and refer to them in baseline with a diagram and Target with a diagram using only the elements that I need in each from the library “Package”.

I tried taking this path but got stuck when I was creating Relationship Matrix and apparently a Layered diagram from it . Happy to clarify more if you have questions .

General Board / Archimate 2 Elements
« on: October 20, 2016, 03:15:00 pm »
I struggle with a few UI issues and would appreciate any help on this .

Mostly use Archimate 2 elements and would like to know the following

1. How to wrap text in the element display . Note I tried Feature Visibility --> "Wrap Features" but nothing happens
2. How to display additional details in the UI . I have added Operations and attributes to my element , how to make this visible in the diagram

General Board / Gap Analysis - Baseline and Target Packages
« on: October 14, 2016, 06:06:18 pm »
Hello,
I know this topic has been posted a while back , I'am trying to use Gap Analysis matrix between Baseline and Target packages . It works best when I have the elements in both baseline package and target package , however my intention is to use a library of components and use them in baseline and target diagrams (as link) . The intention to use a library is not to replicate the same description and notes I have put in each of the element.
Now EA doesn't help me with a setup like that . Can anyone point me to the right set of steps please or a documentation on how I go about Gap analysis in EA
