Bugs and Issues / Re: Imported requirements not recognizing MDG tags
« on: March 27, 2018, 04:19:23 pm »
I have used the CSV export in the exact same way (importing my tagged values added in an UML profile wit an MDG) and it worked fine for us.

I'm not sure what you are doing differently, but it at least you know it should be possible.


I'm pretty sure you can change that property for all diagrams using a script and/or SQL update statement.

First you'll have to figure out where exactly EA stores the setting for a diagram.
I would look first at the StyleEx field t_diagram.


I think you can set that in the properties of the table in Word, but not in the template itself.

I remember writing a VBA macro to change that setting in Word after generating a document.


You could either use the department field, or use the notes field in the authors (people)


Thanks for the update Sven.

Might come in handy some day.

You can compare the editions here:


Weird. The technologies that I made (and imported into the model) are sorted alphabetically among the others.

You may be thinking of the MDG Technologies Page, where they ARE sorted alphabetically.  I'm talking about the Add Package...  using (*) Select and Apply Model Pattern.


I did. I guess I should wait till after I had my first coffee before replying. ;D

If project integrity check doesn't help, I would compare the t_xref records with the last backup you made, and closely examine the new records (that didn't exist in the backup).

There might be an unexpected character in there somewhere that is not properly escaped when doing the transfer.


When you try to add a project with a local MDG specified pattern, it is placed at the end of a very long list on the Model Patterns tab!  Can we either have them at the top or in a separate tab on the dialog?

The option you are looking for is found at
Configure | Security | Locks (v14)
Project | Security | Manage Locks (v12)


But if security is not enabled, or there are no locks to be found in the Manage Locks dialog then you have a weird case.
The easiest way to solve it is to go into the database and remove the locks using an SQL query.

Locks are stored in the t_seclock table so a
Code: [Select]
delete from t_seclockWould do the trick.


There is no automatic locking of used elements in EA.
Locking and unlocking is something you do manually, so this will not be caused by any Citrix issues.

The red exclamation indicates that another user has locked the elements.
You will not see those locks in the "Manage My Locks" dialog (shows only your locks), but you can remove the locks from the "Manage Locks" dialog (shows all locks).


Bugs and Issues / Re: Behaviour of action pins
« on: March 23, 2018, 12:06:24 am »
Seems like your expectations are reasonable, but I'm afraid activity parameters are not used that much.
So you might be the first who really wants to use those features, and decides to complain.


Even more digging reveals that the problem only occurs when doing a GetLatest or an Undo checkout.

A simple checkout (even if the local file is not the latest) does not cause the problem.

That is slightly better news as we can (temporarily) ban getLatest or Undo checkout.

Since the bug seems to be related to the xmi import process, I'm curious where else this problem occurs.
(XMI import, Reusable Assets,...)


Did some more digging and the behavior is quite random for different tagged values depending on the object they are defined on:

- Object tagged values => OK
- Attribute tagged values => NOK: emptied
- Connector tagged values => NOK: emptied
- Connector role tagged values => OK
- Operation tagged values => NOK: emptied
- Parameter tagged values => OK

Now trying to figure out how to temporarily work around this problem.



Have you tried using "drawParentShape()" in the shapescript of XYZ?
I think that will do what you need.
