Bugs and Issues / Re: Values of attributes always truncated
« on: September 28, 2017, 08:46:28 am »
Victoria is not planet Sparx, you need to take platform 9 from Flinders Street Station to get there.
I probably shouldn't say that you'd need to leave from Spencer St/Southern Cross Station...

Flinders St Station and its surrounds frightened me.  There was so many things on the outsides of buildings that would kill you in an earthquake.
Just as well Australia is so geologically stable then.

Yes, actually I already found a problem, which is directly related to EA itself. When trying to open an EAP file that has been created with the Japanese version (I'm using the English version), EA signals "An Error has occurred: Unrecognized database format" and refuses opening the project.

Any ideas from Sparx side what the cause of this problem could be and how to solve this issue?

Go to the options and enable JET 4.

The good news is that if you have that issue, the text inside will saved as unicode instead of shift jis.

Yes, attribute default values have been explicitly truncated for the entire time I've been familiar with Enterprise Architect.

When importing users from Active Directory the EA Client understands it is a Active Directory credential and uses SSO.
No, it really doesn't...

What you are seeing is that "Accept Windows Authentication" logs you in as the t_secuser that matches your Windows username. The login prompt is suppressed, but in my opinion at least it doesn't qualify as a single sign on implementation.

Importing users from Active Directory into EA doesn't solve this problem. When you use that function within EA, it's usually in the context of using 'Accept Windows Authentication'. EA creates the users, but that's all. If you tried to explicitly log-in to another user, you couldn't because there is no valid password.

When authenticating users in the cloud server and web ea, it authenticates against the users in the database.

I'd like to get an Active Directory/SSO authentication working, but it's not that simple.

I believe that problem should be saved by updating to a more recent EA version. A change in the implementation of that prompt within Windows caused the error.

Is there are problem being reported by your customer?

You'll need to be aware that if they are using a JET 3 based database, values will probably be saved in the Shift JIS codepage.

It's also possible that the database contains translated text, where you're looking for a particular value. From memory this happens for object scenario types.

AFAIK GetCurrentDiagram only returns the visible diagram in the main window.

Unfortunately, it's smarter/more annoying than that. A simple description would be that it is the last main window you have interacted with. That means that if you start a script using either the debug or run buttons on the script editor you will never have a current diagram, because that script editor will be the current view.

You get much better results and an easier configuration if you use the cloud server instead of the wan optimizer.

If you have any kind of shared network available, you could set up a keystore on someone's workstation. Even if it's a laptop. If the connection is intermittent, configure the keystore so that keys aren't automatically returned and they have a couple of days of validity.

I'd say that best depends on your needs, but other than that I agree with Uffe and would recommend RAS.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: RefGUID tagged value
« on: September 07, 2017, 08:41:11 am »
With the EA Navigator add-in you can navigate both ways over a RefGUID tagged value.
Actually, in recent versions of EA the traceability window offers the same thing.

Anyone know why the classifier of the property is not in t_object classifier_guid?
A classifier is a completely different concept.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: RefGUID tagged value
« on: August 29, 2017, 08:25:57 am »
Maybe it would be clearer if you used real examples.

Are these classes stereotyped?
Does the stereotype define a tagged value, or have you manually added it?
What is the full definition of the tagged value? (ie. Where you have Type=RefGUID;)

After re-reading your description... Are you expecting an automatic link showing the opposite end of the tagged value when setting it in one location? There's no function in EA that does that.
