General Board / Re: EA Database structure verion
« on: August 25, 2017, 08:03:57 pm »
Thanks.
For the record we got Oracle RDBMS. I was more interested in how to tell if it was 851 or 1220. But I guess doing a Diff is probably they only way.

Bugs and Issues / Nested elements and ArchiMate3::ArchiMate_Aggregation
« on: August 25, 2017, 08:00:13 pm »

Aggregation & Composition behave differently for nesting different elements. In the Application toolbox I create an Aggregation relationship between two elements and then place one inside the other. The line disappears. As it should according to specification.
If I do the same thing for Business Funstions the line does not disappear. Is there something in the MDG that I can modify so as to get this behaviour?

General Board / EA Database structure verion
« on: August 24, 2017, 07:32:49 pm »
We have been running 12.1 and upgraded to 13.5. But seeing as I have only recently taken over admin of the database I don't know their version. Is there a way to find out which Version of the EA database I got?
I am thinking something simple like:

SELECT * FROM t_version

General Board / Re: EA Swimlanes and custom Tagged Values
« on: August 24, 2017, 07:24:20 pm »
Not UML Swimlanes. The built-in swimlane, Matrix and kanban. Found what I wanted in Kanban. This allows me to use my UML Types Tagged Values to sort the elements into lanes.

General Board / EA Swimlanes and custom Tagged Values
« on: August 24, 2017, 02:45:52 am »
Hi,
Has EA v13.5 lost the ability to Swimlane on Tagged Values? KanBan seems to have kept that ability and I do remember in v12.1 doing Swimlanes on custom Tagged Values.
Is there something I missed in the configuration og a Swimlane in v13.5?

General Board / Security: Row Level Locking
« on: August 21, 2017, 06:51:55 pm »
I have a question about security in EA.
I have been reading about the addition of row level locking for EA. But I haven't really seen it. Neither in the released product nor in commitments to a future release. Can anyone shed some light on this???

General Board / Re: Automatic Color Elements based on Tagged Values

Jepp. Thanks. That worked. Setting Auto Color on the Legend.
Next time RTFM  :D

It may be better to use the SQLQuery first and then iterate through that:

Code: [Select]
String strResult =
eaRepository.SQLQuery("SELECT ea_guid FROM ...");

List<Row> rows = EAGuid.Deserialise(strResult);

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Scripting: Run button disabled
« on: August 18, 2017, 06:31:42 pm »
Hi,
Does anyone have an idea why my Run button is diabled in the Scripting toolbox? I am Administrator. In EA 12.1 it is enabled. In EA 13 it is disabled.

Hi!
You could upload a picture of what you want. But I am guessing that you will be needing some scripting either within EA or outside using the EA API.

General Board / Automatic Color Elements based on Tagged Values
« on: August 18, 2017, 04:17:21 am »
Hello,
Hopefully someone has done this before and can help me out :)

I have been investigating Heat Map dashboards and they are really informative. What I would like to do is place elements (for example: ArchiMate Application Components) onto a diagram and based on Tagged Values to change the default color automatically.

I could do this with a script. But I don't want it to be a manual task. Maybe there is a "Before Display" event I could use to trigger the color change.

Any help would be appreaciated.

Thanks,
Eamonn J.

Uml Process / Re: BPMN Import - Diagram does not draw correctly

Integrety Checker did not pick up any problems. I think I'll abandon this one for a while.  ;D

Uml Process / BPMN Import - Diagram does not draw correctly
« on: August 02, 2017, 08:24:47 pm »
Hi!

I recently got a BPMN file that was exported from CA Agile Requirements Designer. I am trying to import it into EA using Import XML / BPMN v2.0. It imports all of the elements but the diagram comes ou very strange. For example: Arrows don't Connect to boxes. They just stop in dead Space on the canvas.

I am guessing that the Bounds and Waypoint coordinates are the problem. That EA uses different geometry. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks for any advice

General Board / Database Engineering: Remove Schema on import
« on: June 19, 2017, 08:54:02 pm »
Hi!

Got a question for reverse engineering a database that has Schema names (Oracle, DB2 etc.). Is there an option in EA to ignore the schema name on the import? What I am really trying to do is compare one live database schema to another lives schema.
Maybe I could just change it in the model? But I don't want to do that manually.

Thanks in advance
Eamonn J.
