Bugs and Issues / UML Collaboration diagram modified order after edit
« on: February 13, 2016, 01:57:31 am »

I created a UML collaboration diagram with around 20 messages exchanged between 8 objects.
I defined a specific order using the "Sequence Communication Messages" window.

When I add a new message and move it in the appropriate order, the order of existing messages get mixed up. This requires me to review and amend the order accordingly.

I'm using the latest build of EA 12.1


Bugs and Issues / RAS model update: duplicate key GUID error
« on: February 11, 2016, 09:48:13 pm »
I'm getting the following error when importing a new version of a centralised model from a RAS server:

I ran a comparison after the import and this attribute doesn't show up (nor it class). This seems to be a bug.
Note that my EA project is running on a Postgres DB.

From this comparison, I also noticed the following bugs following an import:
- diagrams Date created and Date modified are not correctly updated -> the imported diagram's time is set to 00:00:00 hence leading to a difference with the RAS.
- generalization links' Style field have an extra Hidden=0 value in the Baseline

General Board / XSD transformation: attribute mapping
« on: February 10, 2016, 07:58:07 pm »

I'm looking into XSD related EA features to identify the most efficient way to achieve the following: define a UML class to transform to an XSD model, and generate the schema (XSD or JSON file) with the Schema Composer.
I can't figure out the mapping of attribute types between UML and XSD ; is there any information available on this?

I created UML classes with Language = None ; this does not seem to be appropriate since the number of attribute types is limited.
e.g. I'd like to define a UML class with an attribute which will transform in an XSD element "Year" of type xs:gYear.


Suggestions and Requests / Derby DB reverse engineering support
« on: February 09, 2016, 11:40:20 pm »

I need to run a DDL reverse engineering on an Apache Derby DB which can be accessed via JDBC. I believe there is an ODBC available to access this DBMS.
Is there any plan to support DERBY databases in EA?


General Board / Local RAS package version?
« on: February 02, 2016, 03:30:17 am »
Is there any way to check the package version + storage, as defined in a RAS repository, that matches an imported package in the EA Project?
I cannot find any way to check the version that has been chosen by the user who carried the import using RAS. Am I missing something?
If this is not supported, could we simply have a Tagged Value or other property in the imported package (or model root) that stores such data?


Suggestions and Requests / Cloud Connection list
« on: February 01, 2016, 11:23:55 pm »

When using the Cloud Connection dialog to access a RAS, I always get the last RAS Cloud Server. When several RAS servers are used, it's quickly a pain to change the Name + url + Model name.
It would be nice to have the ability to define a list of Connection details to each server that's often used (or automatically have access to the last 5 servers opened from a local PC, for Cloud or RAS purpose).


Bugs and Issues / Random order on the versions in the RAS Registry Browser
« on: February 01, 2016, 10:32:53 pm »

I started using the RAS and I've quickly come across some odd behaviour with the registered packages versions; the order of the versions displayed in the drop down list was initially random. Then I updated the Cloud Service to v1.1.10.0, and versions are sorted by Registered Date/Time. Yet I haven't seen this bug fix in the readme file.

It seemed to be ok until I change the version naming convention. EA selects the version with the "greatest" value, instead of selecting the last one in the list.
v1.0 --> selected
9.1 --> latest (should be selected)

I have an other comment on the versions drop down list: you have to click on the version to activate the drop down list. This could be improved from a UI perspective so it's available when selected.

Suggestions and Requests / Add tagged value support to Info Views
« on: October 08, 2015, 02:01:34 am »

I'm defining a custom template using MDG and I may have an interest in using the Info View in some diagrams where I need to display Tagged Values (as defined in the stereotype).
New EA12.1 Info View visible properties is limited to a couple of fields. Would it be possible to add Tagged Values?


Suggestions and Requests / Context filters bound to a diagram
« on: September 01, 2015, 06:15:44 pm »
I often use a mindmap diagram for demo purposes in EA, setting it as my model default.
By having the context filter enabled, it shows where we are before moving to or coming back from other diagrams.
However once you enable the context filter, it applies to all diagrams.

It would be nice to have an option to bind a single context filter on all diagrams (current behaviour), or bind one context filter per diagram where it's been enabled.

What do you think?


It would be nice if we could define the nominal scenario i.e. main path in a BPMN diagram e.g. by setting the line colour on all nodes and flows in green.
An enhancement in Enterprise Architect would involve letting you choose and update a single path amongst all alternatives to define as a main path (EA could create a TV on all links & nodes to apply a dedicated colour. As you expand the diagram with additional nodes, EA would automatically assign new nodes to the main path.

What do you think?


Suggestions and Requests / Add tagged value support in Diagram Filters
« on: January 29, 2015, 03:32:34 am »

I need to apply filters on a number of diagrams based on the tagged value in elements or connectors.
Would it be possible to have a list of predefined tagged values added to the available fields so we can define a value to filter on?
e.g. if I create an enum TV "category" with possible values as cat1, cat2, cat3, and apply this TV on my classes and associations, I could easily hide/show only cat1, cat2, etc.

Could this be added to the next build of EA?


Suggestions and Requests / Additional Security permissions
« on: February 21, 2015, 03:21:40 am »
When you use the EA Security with the "Require User lock to Edit" option disabled and give the Lock Elements permissions to users, I found the following "glitch":

With the admin account, I lock a model to a specific group (GroupA). This way users of GroupA can work on this model.
A GroupA user who has the Lock Elements permission can lock e.g. a diagram to himself/herself. I find this pretty cool so concurrency is possible within a group.
The issue I found is that this same user could change the lock to Full or No Lock -> from then any user with the Lock permission can change the lock on this element, diagram or package.

I think it would be useful to define one permission for each lock type : No Lock, Full Lock, User Lock, Group Lock.
So I'd give users of GroupA the User & Group lock so they cannot create or change a package with No Lock or Full Lock.


Suggestions and Requests / Extend "Link to Element feature" to Connector
« on: August 06, 2014, 10:55:48 pm »

I find very useful associating fields from a UI illustration with class' attributes via dependency links + Link to Element feature enabled.

However when you have associations with other classes instead of using attributes, there is no way of associating an association end/role with a UI field.

Would it be feasible to create a similar Link to Connector feature?

Suggestions and Requests / Preview element when adding to a diagram
« on: April 29, 2014, 12:28:32 am »

When you drag/drop an existing element from the Project Browser to the current diagram, an icon is displayed before releasing the mouse button to add the element. It lets you choose where to add the element.
Would it be possible to show what the element, e.g. a class, interface looks like before it is added to the diagram? (some kind of preview)


The specification manager should provide the same sorting and grouping functions based on the active fields as all other reports in EA (e.g. search results, package list view, etc.)
