That kind of information is usually stored in the registry


Update 2: No.

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

Arrows don't Connect to boxes. They just stop in dead Space on the canvas.

This shouldn't happen. All connectors in EA have two ends with an element at each end. If a connector appears to end in midair, then where's the element? It could be invisible, it could be hidden behind another element. It needs to be found!

In general though, transferring models between tools is a lot easier than transferring diagram layouts, so expect to spend some time rearranging diagrams manually...

Which language are you using? I notice that SysML has a <<Stakeholder>> stereotype with a "concern" tagged value that provides a memo field. But if you prefer the Relationship Matrix to memo tagged values, you could create your own <<Concern>> stereotype and use that.

Is the difference between a class and a datatype that instances of a class have identity whereas instances of a datatype are distinguishable only by their value? (This Fred is not that Fred, but a 3 is a 3 is a 3).

General Board / Re: Can't add attributes or operations using toolbox???
« on: August 01, 2017, 04:52:35 pm »
I don't think it has ever been possible to drop unstereotyped attributes or operations from a custom toolbox. Only stereotyped attributes and operations. If you think that's worth a bug report, please use the "Report a Bug" link at the bottom of the page.

General Board / Re: What is a "property"?
« on: August 01, 2017, 10:37:33 am »
When dropping a class element in a diagram a dialog appears asking of what kind the dropped element shall be created: Link, Instance, Child, Property.

Paolo is correct that Property has many meanings depending on context. In this context, it is used as a synonym for Part.

Bugs and Issues / Re: SysML Item Flow with item property
« on: August 01, 2017, 09:33:05 am »
This is still a problem in V13. I am trying to implement the Water Distiller example in Chapter 16 of the Practical Guide to SysML book (Iss 2 so SysML 1.3). This is a showstopper as you can't create an Item Flow item than can be allocated to from an object flow. I want to be able to map between logical model object flows and physical model items flows, e.g. a real-world value like temperature in the logical model is represented by a sensor voltage in the physical model.

I don't have the book so can you describe the diagram please?

So what is an association that's not going to be an attribute? A ghost?

I think the question should be the other way around: what is an attribute that's not going to be an association end? The convention used in the UML specification itself appears to be that they use associations between classes, but attributes with data types (primitive or otherwise).

On the Preferences dialog, there is an Allow Free Sorting option that you should tick, if not already.

ribbon|Start|Workspace|Preferences|General|Project Browser|Allow Free Sorting

Can anyone tell me what/how to set/clear?

A quick check of the diagram's extended style shows the parameter isn't in there... nor do I see any other obvious location for it.

Thanks - Julian

t_diagram.StyleEx includes "CEE=1;"

Instead of * you need a %.


Or use '#WC#' which will substitute the appropriate wildcard character for the database you're running the search on.

If all you want to do is display one of a BPMN Activity's tagged values on a diagram, then rather than messing around with shape scripts and risk losing BPMN functionality, add a Note to the activity (right-click > New Child Element > Attach Note), right-click the note link and "Link this note to an element feature".

or use subclasses of Theism instead of Theism types. In that case you can give each subclass it's own redefined association with redefined exact multiplicities.

Was going to suggest this but Geert beat me to it.

You will need to change t_object.Object_Type from 'Event' to 'ObjectNode'. (Probably not the whole story, but one step closer...)

Yes. Highlight some text then from the ribbon choose Edit | Edit | Edit | Apply Comment
