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 »
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
« on: August 21, 2017, 06:47:19 pm »
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 »
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.

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 »
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.

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 »

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

Is there any way to find out the model name that was used to create a reusable asset?

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

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

Last week we encountered an interesting defect. For some reason the Parent_ID of a t_package got the same id as the Package_ID. This meant that it was a parent of itself. And of course dropped out of the Project Browser.
The solution was to og into the database and run an UPDATE SQL to reconnect it to a package in the Browser.

Has this been reported before?
