General Board / Re: Distribute MDG Technology via Cloud Services?
« on: August 19, 2016, 05:23:53 pm »
Hi,

Not sure if you can do this via the cloud service, but what I have done in the past is deploy my MDG xml to a web server. Users then add the url to the MDG. Any updates made to the MDG on the web server are automatically picked up,

Jon.

Hi,

As well as the hand coded approaches mentioned by Geert, there are a couple of commercial products that provide a data exchange between EA and HP ALM, see:

There are others ... however my experience is that they are all costly - but good in a corporate env where total cost of ownership is important...

Hi,

Sparx always needs to run under a user. The user it runs under must have run sparx before in an interactive session and entered/accepted the license details.

If your scheduled job is running under a system account that has not run sparx before, it will just be sitting their waiting for someone to enter/accept the license. See this article for further details:

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: BPMN2.0 from C# addin
« on: July 15, 2016, 07:56:42 pm »
Hi,

You are adding all elements to the same collection. You would need to create a collection for the pools first, then for each pool element get a new collection of its elements, to which you add lanes then finally for each lane get a collection and add its elements. So nesting everything in the project browser.

However the real problem would then come as you add elements to the diagram. You are currently just adding with default coordinates. They is a way to place them at specific locations (can't remember the method) ... but this will be very difficult. There is an autolayout method - but this want help with a BPMN diagram :-(....

Hi,

Have a look at diagram filters in the help. You can add a version number to a field you can filter on, ie phase, then hide elements as required. However I can't remember of the top of my head if you can filter relationships - I think you can...

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Run script from add-in

Hi,

Not a direct answer to your question but have a look at Geerts site - there are details here (plus an add-id) about how to run scripts from add-ins etc...

Hi,

If you want a collection of elements based upon an ad-hoc SQL query (as opposed to a saved EA query) use:

- GetElementSet (string IDList, long Options)

IDList will be your SQL, Options will be 2; see here for details:

Hi,

You use EA as an unattended service as per the guide you refer to ? We could never get it to work...we need to ensure that there is a user (with Sparx access) always logged into our server (as the first logged in user)...If you did get it to work, are there any tips you can pass on ?

Hi,

You could try this https://www.businessprocessincubator.com/cloudapps/#web-service-28 to convert from xpdl to bpmn, then try importing into EA ?

Hi,

There is a blog post on Geerts site that explains some of those http://bellekens.com/2011/01/14/harvesting-the-power-of-eas-sql-searches/

You can also search the online sparx help, there is a page that explains all special tags that can be used in SQL from sparx.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: SharePoint support
« on: September 16, 2015, 06:48:24 pm »
All elements in Sparx have a 'Files' tab which you can use to add a reference to a 'WebAddress', ie a document on sharepoint. Your user can then click the web address in Sparx to open the sharepoint document (assuming they have sharepoint access). You can also create 'hyperlink' object on diagrams in Sparx that can link to urls (amongst others)...

Jon.

Suggestions and Requests / Embed graphics into notes field
« on: January 28, 2013, 09:42:18 pm »
Hi,

Can anyone in Sparx confirm of a feature request to embed graphics directly within the notes field of an element has be logged/raised before ?

I appreciate that you can achieve this via linked documents, but i need the ability to paste a graphic directly into the notes field.

The interesting thing is that i can paste a graphic into the note field now. However it doesn't save.

Regards,

Jon.

Just spotted this one - as we have the same request - it would be nice if a graphic could be pasted into the notes field. I note that you can paste it in - and it looks great...Sparx just doesn't save it in the notes ! I appreciate that you could use a linked doc - but we would like to just use the notes field for our operator instructions (for various reasons).

Regards,


Jon.
