General Board / Styles & Section Numbering in RTF
« on: November 22, 2011, 10:29:10 pm »
Hi All,

I've read (and probably not understood - note i think help docs need updating here) the User-Defined Section Nunbering section, but i can't get the effect i require.

I'm generating a document (a table of requirments) which is being automatically inserted into a Word document as a linked document. This works fine.

However the word document uses different "heading styles", "Numbered Heading 2" and "Numbered Heading 3". I can create the same styles in the RTF template editor and apply "Heading Style 2" to my "Package name", however i can't get the RTF generatror to automatcially use "Heading Style 3" for child packages. Any suggestions ?

I appreciate this ones a bit difficult to explain, so please ask for clarification if you think you may be able to help.

Regards,


Jon.

General Board / CSV import
« on: November 10, 2011, 01:50:35 am »
We have a list of requirments that we will need to import, on a regular basis. The CSV import capability works fine. However when i re-import the list (to pick up additions and changes) any existing entry in EA is created again. I'd like EA to either skip or overwrite duplicate entries - is there any way to when using CSV import to do this (when we don't have GUIDS) on the import CSV file?

General Board / RTF report containing details of rules composer ?
« on: November 01, 2011, 09:29:10 pm »
Hi All,

Is there a way to output via the RTF Document Generator the details contained within a "rule task" when viewed via the "rules composer" ?

I know i can output to csv file, but i need the details in my requirments document that is being auto generated via the RTF Document Generator.

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / How does EA model BPMN under the hoods?
« on: August 24, 2011, 09:49:54 pm »
Hi,

I have a question about how EA models BPMN under the hoods. Specifically i need to understand how EA associates a BPMN Pool/Lane with a contained Activity/Process on a diagram? Does anyone know which tables/column in the EA database tell EA that the activity is contained within the pool on the diagram?

I ask a i need to write a report that lists all activities used by a role (ie a Lane in BPMN). The problem is that we have a libary (ie seperate directory in EA of all roles - a bunch of BPMN Lane elements/objects in a directory) of roles/Lanes that is reused across diagrams. Each diagram is in its own package (representing the process being modeled), which also contains the activities associated with the package.

The only relationship (used loosly here) that i can see is at the diagram level - as the Activity just sits in the Lane - its not a child or embeded element. There is also no formal relationship (connectors) between the two elements - so how does EA know that the Lane contains the activity on the diagram? I can see a ObjectType column in the DiagramObjects table and see the the Lane is dockable, so my assumption is that when a move a Lane (dockable element) on a diagram EA looks at the coordinates of all elements on the diagram and moves any that are within the dockable element - problem is that i can't search for this in SQL etc....so can't report upon it...any clues or suggestions?

Appreciate any help,

Jon.

Hi All,

Struggling with this one :- how would i create an rtf report that lists the name of all diagrams that each element appears in - the equivalent to ctrl-u in the project browser ?

Thanks,

General Board / ActivityPartition / Pool / Lane - instances ?
« on: August 31, 2011, 07:11:29 pm »
Hi All,

For various reasons i need to create "as Instance Element (Object)" instead of "as Simple Link" when i drag and drop an ActivityPartition, Pool or Lane onto a diagram.

EA prompts me on the "Paste Element" dialogue to select "as Simple Link" or "as Instance Element (Object)" however it ignores my selection and always adds the element to the diagram "as Simple Link".

Is there a known work around ?

What tag in a uml profile tells EA to allow creation of the element "as Instance..." ? If i can figure this out ill be able to create a profile for myself that fixes the issue...thoughts?

Thanks,

Jon.

General Board / Merging Elements
« on: August 24, 2011, 10:59:15 pm »
Hi,

Is there an automated way to merge two or more elements (in different packages) into a single new element. My users have created duplicates of elements in various packages and i now need to merge them into a single new element....would be nice to have a tool / feature to do this in EA - but i can't find one. Any external tools/Add-ins provide this capability?

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / OLE DB error when connecting to SQL Server
« on: August 25, 2011, 08:35:38 pm »
Hi All,

I have a user that is getting an OLE DB connection error when we try to connect to an SQL Server database. The connection test is fine. Does anyone know how to trace/debug OLE DB connections? Can EA be run in a debug mode where details of errors are output to a log file?

Thanks,

Jon.

Hi,

Does anyone know if there is a way to automatically add the details of the EA user that generates an rtf document in EA - is there a field that can be added ?

Thanks,
