General Board / Red Caret on Diagram Element?
« on: August 04, 2014, 05:07:11 am »
Tried to find out what the red caret or downwards pointing triangle means on my digram element. Can't find the information and it suddenly appeared.

Cheers,

General Board / Showing atributes in Archimate diagrams
« on: July 31, 2014, 02:03:45 am »
Is there a way to display attributes in Archimate diagrams?

I want to be able to show attributes for the Technology Layer where tech specs of Devices and Nodes can be shown.

Now I created a composite element to a UML deployment diagram.

Cheers,

General Board / Re: Sharing user created projects files on Sparx s
« on: June 20, 2014, 11:47:41 pm »
Thanks for the response. The Community Site is exactly the place for user shared EA project files.

It is a great resource for EA users, the Community Resources are however, not being used for EA project file sharing. Maybe it should have a page of its own.

In my opinion, this forum should be integrated into the Community Site.

Cheers,

General Board / Sharing user created projects files on Sparx site
« on: June 20, 2014, 09:51:37 pm »
It is not easy to find Enterprise Architect project files on the internet. The result is often disappointing. I was looking for e.g. different types of patterns to re-use.

I am not sure if this has been suggested before (I did check the forum first before posting).

Wouldn't it be beneficial for all  EA users to be able to share their EAP files on the Sparx website? Maybe as part of a EA Community page / sub-site.
  • This way, the use of patterns can be promoted

Newbies will find ways to get started quickly
We can all learn from others and improve our EA skills
An involved community will promote the EA use
We can share thoughts on the "open" models

General Board / Re: Why no link Project Aurthor(s) and Security?

That is what I suspected: an improvement request. :)

Thanks for the feedback.

General Board / Why no link Project Aurthor(s) and Security?
« on: April 19, 2013, 12:30:54 am »
Maybe this is a newby question about EA 10 Corp.:

Today, I tried to set up Project Security for the first time. All went well, but I found the function Project > Security > Manage Users utterly confusing and cumbersome.

First, I set all my EA Project Authors through: Settings > Project Types > People.

To my knowledge, a Project Author is a resource who works on an EA project (file). All the other resources work outside of EA and may not need any connection to e.g. AD.

So if I want to enable Project Security, isn't it logical to conclude that I want to give access to my Project Author(s)?

In other words, why can't I select from a list of Project Author(s) in the Project > Security > Manage Users menu and assign them a password and username?

Thanks for the reply.

I'll post it in the feature request forum instead.

General Board / How to select multiple connectors?
« on: April 17, 2013, 06:24:12 pm »
Have been trying this for a while now: select multiple connectors and change the line style for all of the selected connectors.

On the moment, I can only select one connector at a time, so changing the connector routing style on an existing diagram can be very time consuming.

Any suggestions on how I can select multiple connectors?

Cheers,

There has been an issue in EA version 11 with the Zachman Framework MDG.

In EA 12 the error is more specific:
Zachman Framework:
Cannot create XML Document

How can this be fixed?

Bugs and Issues / MDH Togaf v3: issue with MS Jet engine
« on: January 07, 2015, 03:56:56 am »
Just installed the latest version of the Togaf MDG extension (version 3) in the latest version of EA version 11.1.

Unfortunately, I still experience an issue with the installed MDG extension. The TOGAF extension menu is empty. When I go to the MDG extension folder to open the TOGAF example project, I get this error message:

An error Occurred: The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file <c:\location ect>. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.

However the Togaf example project can be opened when I start EA as an Administrator. Once the file is opened, the extension is no longer empty.

Is there a solution to properly install the Togaf extension?

The previous version also had its issues..

Cheers,


Dave

Thanks for the response. I noticed EA 11 reporting the issue now as opposed to previous versions.

There were some issues with some of the MDG technologies in earlier versions i.e. where I needed to run EA as an admin to access MDG functionality.

Bugs and Issues / System Output: Duplicate profile name: ZF warning
« on: May 09, 2014, 08:36:48 pm »
After the recent upgrade to EA 11, the new system output gives me a message:

WARNING: Duplicate profile name: ZF, detected in technology ID: ZF      

This seems to be related to the Zachman Framework extension.

How can this be resolved so I will not see the warning again?

Cheers,

Dave
