Check the model stereotypes list. You might find a stereotype named 'ArchiMate3::ArchiMate_Composition'. If you do, delete it.

There will probably be entries where the stereotype is set that could try to automatically recreate the record. If so, you may need to delete them before deleting the stereotype definition.

General Board / Re: Data objetc reuse in BPMN?

Richard is correct, when the OMG created BPMN, they created it as a separate metamodel instead of a UML profile as they did for many others like SysML. A later effort created a UML profile for a subset of BPMN.

Yes. The '.5' is secondary as was intentionally not added to the images.

This will break things.
Code: [Select]
For legacy reasons, the property Element.Stereotype does not support fully qualified names. The code above will actually define a new stereotype in the model with the name BPMN2.0::Activity. It is a completely separate stereotype from the Activity stereotype from the BPMN2.0 profile.

You should use:
Code: [Select]
This will parse the assigned string, and set the stereotype to the one from the requested profile.

You're not calling Update on the attribute after setting the default. I'm assuming that "all other fields" are being set before update is called inside addOrUpdateAttribute.

You may want to modify addOrUpdateAttribute so that it takes a default as an extra parameter.

Our users are also suffering from double login, and 401 errors which sometimes come up many times.

Simon M said: "The only way to suppress this error is to not require http authentication."

How can I cancel http authentication?
The authentication is in your cloud config file. It specifies either a global authentication or a model authentication for each port opened. You'll need to restart the service after any changes. If you do remove authentication, you will also need to disable the 'Require a Secure and Authenticated connection' for that database in the cloud management client.

On a related note, I often link from our documentation to Sparx documentation,
to reduce ongoing maintenance it would be useful have an option such as
This could actually cause more ongoing maintenance. Sometimes it is necessary to add or remove pages. We can keep such structural changes limited to version increases, but couldn't guarantee that a link to latest would still be valid (or notify you if it changed).

EA updates t_connectortypes during load of a model.

For the purposes of creating a profile, you should be using the list provided by the metatypes dialog in EA. As it happens, that list is filled by t_connectortypes.

Including the actual list in the documentation is redundant, because we expect people to use the tools that are provided.

I wanted to look into the link you provided, but the ... seem too far off to target any page.
Pro-tip. Just take the filename for the html document and append it to the root of the user guide on the website.

Just to be on the safe side, whenever I do a query on the database it includes something like
and c.Connector_Type in ('Realization','Realisation')

I do the same with Generalization/Generalisation.
Really shouldn't be necessary. If you ever see Generalisation or Realization in the DB it's bad data inserted either by EA or another tool. (If using EA's sql search, alias the column name to prevent EA being too helpful)

However, to the original question.  How consistent should the two sets be?
In an ideal world, they would probably be the same. Factors like the expressiveness of the transform language or new connector types not being added everywhere (including documentation) mean that that isn't going to be the case.

Is there a problem you're attempting to overcome?

The value stored in the database should always be Realisation. I don't expect that to be changed for compatibility reasons.  Most places where you specify a type it can be spelled as Realization, and in the English version it should be displayed as Realization.

Having said that, I just checked the code for parsing the transformation output, it only seems to handle Realisation at the moment.

All themes have an equivalent search function in the application menu button.

It looks like the built in Technology Service stereotype for ArchiMate3 disables shadows. So you won't get a status colour displayed, even if you override the shape and call drawparentshape.

Just ran a test using the following shape script
Code: [Select]
shape main





After enabling status colour display for activities, only two of the four shapes drawn in that shape script have a status colour drawn on the shadow. (Using the outline)

There's certainly issues there. Currently onl
