Let's say we have several Application Components that realize (they are connected to) some Business Function.

A key requirements for Enterprise Architecture is the ability to show the application component names directly on business function shapes.

Do we have a generic solution to show names of connected items directly on shapes?
I can't find anyway to do this on Shapescript.
Do we need some add-in?
Do we have any shared code available to do this?

NB: This capability should be built in Sparx

Does anybody know in which table(s) the model searches are stored?

We have some trouble publishing as HTML using a scheduler on Windows Server.
Our schedulers can export to Excel, create a Project Transfer et... but not an HTML report.
Does anybody have similar problems and knows how to fix this?
Thank you,

Here are the symptoms:

We wrote a c# program that does a runHTMLReport.

When the programme is launched via a bat file in command line it works fine.

When the same bat file is used by the windows tasks scheduler: the process is launched, we see the EA process starting in the tasks manager, but it ends quickly without generating anything. This is happening either when launched as a local admin user or the service user.

We modified the program to run as Timer class, replacing the windows scheduler tasks inside the program. It works fine launched as me. The problem is it stops if we logoff. Using the runas command to run it as the service user doesn’t work. We get back a message “Attempting to start EAGenerateDocumentation.bat as user …” but nothing happens.

We modified again the program to use TopShelf to turn it as a service. In command line it runs fine, but installed as service, it doesn’t do anything.

Does anybody know how to add intellisense for Excel objects in VBscript?
Any type library that needs to be integrated?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / _tagGroupStates in MDG
« on: May 24, 2016, 06:42:16 pm »
I have grouped tags in 2 MDGs as described here:

The grouping works fine but the resulting behaviour of the _tagGroupStates is random. When we click on any element, the groups open or closed do not comply with the specification of the _tagGroupStates in our MDGs.

Is there any workaround?



For a specific element or Connector stereotype that is defined in some MDG...

How can we iterate through the list of defined tagged value groups, names and value types
without having an instance of this type of element of connector?

When including scripts in an MDG, how can I define the script group (diagram, project browser...) that each script belongs to?

This is to work around the following problem:
When an MDG is activated by an end user, the scripts contained in the MDG are all part of the Normal group.
I would expect that all deployed scripts would keep their original script group i.e. the script group defined in the MDG Technology model.

Is there a way to create, by script, a dictionary object that contains the Security groups that the current user belongs to?



In our repository, Auto Naming and Auto Counter are activated for the following classifiers:
- Requirements
- Use Cases
As a result, Auto Naming and Auto Counter also apply to any stereotype of these classifiers.
For example, a "UC" prefix is applied to new element that are stereotyped use cases though the stereotype is not meant to represent a use case.

Is there any way to get Auto Naming and Auto Counter settings that are specific to each stereotype?

How can we show a different value than element and package names in the Project browser.

Objective: Based on some parameter, we would like to show a tagged value or the alias instead of the element or project name.


What is the most effective way to delete all baselines from the repository in one go.

Is all baseline information stored ONLY in the t_document table (where t_document.ElementID = t_package.ea_guid) ?



Suggestions and Requests / Show relationships only of a certain type
« on: April 19, 2012, 03:51:36 am »
When adding a relationship between 2 elements, it is extremely annoying to see that all diagrams including the related elements now include that relationship as well, even when that diagram is not meant to show such releationship.
In very large models, this leads to numerous manual changes to each and every diagram to hide these relationships.

Let's says we create an information flow diagram that is supposed to include only Components and Information Flows.
When adding for example an association, a realization, a dependency or a generalization, we don't want these relationships to appear on the Information flow diagram.

Proposed solution
Ability to set a multi-valued property on diagrams to tell which types of relationship need to be visible or hidden.

General Board / Transfer images between repositories

Is there any way to easily...
- Export selected images from a Repository A, and then
- Import these images in a Repository B?



General Board / HTML Report w/o stereotype in Project Browser
« on: May 01, 2012, 12:40:22 am »
When generatting an HTML report from an Archimate model,  the model element names are prefixed with very long archimate stereotype names in the Project Browser/Outliner.
Our HTML reports are meant to non-technical users who don't (need to) know what a stereotype is.

Is there any simple way to produce the HTML Report without any stereotype in the element name prefixe?



Bugs and Issues / How to change UML Nodes into Archimate 2 Nodes?
« on: July 06, 2012, 12:55:14 am »
We can set the stereotype of a UML Node to Archimate1 "Archimate_Node" but this is not what we want since Archimate 1 is legacy.

What we want is to set the UML Node stereotype to the Archimate2 "Archimate_Node".
But it does not work. The Archimate 2 profile does not appear in the drop-down list.
We could not find a way to apply Archimate2 profile to a UML Node.

Does anybody know?
