General Board / Re: Stereotype bulk change
« on: May 05, 2018, 02:35:39 am »
Hi,

You can also change Stereotypes and more by the Open Source 'hoTools' (Bulk change EA Elements). For more information see: https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/BulkEaItemChange

Best regards,

Helmut
Thanks Helmut, please remind me where the install is, I seem to have misplaced my notes and cannot remember.

I found it, very useful tool.

Is it possible to bulk change the language using it?

Hi Takeshi,

That's a really nice EA hint! I shall remember it.

Thanks,

General Board / Date format on diagram notes
« on: May 02, 2018, 03:35:43 am »
I have noticed that the date format on the diagram notes does not much the operating system settings of the computer running Sparx EA. On computers with an OS set to a UK date/time format - e.g., DD/MM/YYYY HH:MM:SS - I keep getting the dates on the diagram notes on an American format - e.g., MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS.

Is there a way of making diagram notes use the "correct" date/time format as per the OS?

General Board / Stereotype bulk change
« on: March 30, 2018, 03:36:13 am »
We are using a custom UML in Sparx with quite a few a stereotypes extending Sparx base elements. The development of this profile is iterative with more detailed added to the profile as we progress on our architecture journey. As part of the last iteration, we decided to rename one of the stereotypes to something a bit more orthodox. Is there are a way to bulk update the “old/previous” stereotypes to the new stereotype?

I have tried a number of things none of which give me the right result. My first attempt was to do an export, change the stereotypes outside Sparx, and reimport. Needless to say it did not work.

General Board / Renaming a (database) product
« on: March 30, 2018, 03:28:14 am »
We have created a canonical database product to avoid tying a logical data model to a particular RBMS. Is there a way to rename the product?

General Board / Re: Roadmap diagrams
« on: March 08, 2018, 09:38:44 pm »
There a checkbox on the legend that says "Apply auto colors" (or something similar)
That one has caught me once as well :)

Geert
Geert - Thanks a lot. this is indeed the answer. Exact spelling is "Apply auto Color" and it is, indeed, disabled by default.

General Board / Roadmap diagrams
« on: March 08, 2018, 02:24:36 am »
I am following the steps on http://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/12.1/project_management/roadmap_diagram.html to create a roadmap diagram but somehow I cannot get the colours specified in the legend to apply to elements on the diagram.

Use Legend for phase colours is ticked, the legends are defined as per the instructions, the elements in the diagram are classes, but somehow I still cannot get the colours to display.


What am I missing?

General Board / Re: MDG Integration for Microsoft Office
« on: January 22, 2018, 10:14:02 pm »
Yes it will work .

Please find the system requirements section in below link .
https://sparxsystems.com.au/products/mdg/int/office/office-integration.html
The link was the 1st thing I checked and it does not mention Office 365 or Windows Server 2012 R2, hence the question. I don't want to make the assumption that "Microsoft Office 2007 or higher" covers Office 365.

Does MDG Integration for Microsoft Office work with Office 365 on Windows Server 2012 R2?

General Board / Repository security
« on: November 25, 2017, 03:26:04 am »
I think I know the answer to this but I will ask just in case. Is there a way to configure repository security on a package-by-package basis?

General Board / WSDL import
« on: November 25, 2017, 03:24:56 am »
I just imported 2 WSDLs into a project. All worked well except for one annoying thing: EA imports all elements as a list without any relationships - i.e. associations - between related elements, it appears that I need to draw the associations manually. Is there a way to get EA to infer the relationships?

General Board / Re: Types of relationships allowed between elements
« on: October 31, 2017, 03:04:22 am »
Thanks qwerty. I have followed your advice and hit a new problem.

All of this was part of profile which, in turn, is part of an MDG. I changed the profile and tested it by saving the package as a UML profile and importing it under resources. The import ends with an internal application error although the import appears to be successful, the new stereotyped relationships are visible under the resources with the correct type. The end result appears to be that the new stereotype relationships are not visible under the corresponding profile.

General Board / Re: Types of relationships allowed between elements
« on: October 31, 2017, 12:38:34 am »
Sparx EA (v 13) only allows certain types of relationships to be drawn between elements for certain types of (UML) diagrams. For instance, I have a structural diagram and cannot draw an association, I can only draw dependencies, traces and information flows. Could somebody please point me in the direction of which relationships are allowed for which diagrams?
Indeed, the restriction is based on connectors.

Is it a correct UML interpretation not to be able to draw an association between an Actor and a Component? If so, what is the proper way (as per UML) to implement an "Owns" and "Governs" relationship, similar their equivalents in TOGAF. By the way Sparx EA TOGAF MDG uses a stereotyped Association for this. 


P.S.: Happy to move this to the UML thread, if needed.
