General Board / Re: Use attributes in behavior description
« on: July 26, 2016, 05:15:26 pm »
As qwerty mentioned, the Behavior field is only plain text so you can't put hyperlinks in there.  Instead, perhaps put hyperlinks to the referenced attributes in the Notes field for your operation?

You should be able to connect to your cloud server via automation.

The below code sample will connect to the "Sydney Cloud" server which is described on the following page
Code: [Select]
Repository.OpenFile( "Sydney Cloud --- ;Connect=Cloud=protocol:http,,port:80;Data Source=Example;DSN=Example;" );
Replace the various parts of that connection string with the relevant details of your own server.

General Board / Re: EA 12.1 keeps asking for password on startup

Hi Eamonn,

You mention that the server was "restarted".  Is it possible that the repository may have been moved?  Are the other repositories you mentioned that are still working on the same server?  You might need to toggle the "Use Windows Authentication" option off and on again.

As a security measure, the Window Authentication is automatically deactivated if the project file is moved to a different location; once the file has been relocated, you can toggle the 'Accept Windows Authentication' checkbox to reactivate Windows Authentication.

As Helmut mentioned, the default username/password creating when you first enable security is 'admin' and 'password'.  If that account has been modified or deleted however and you have no other way to login, you may need to go in via the back-end to disable security.  If that's the case, qwerty's suggestion will probably work, but is overkill.  You only need to delete the row from t_secpolicies where [Property] = 'UserSecurity'

See one of qwerty's previous answers here which is more accurate:,4593.msg121076.html#msg121076

The filter you have enabled in the Diagram Filters window might be overriding what you are trying to do via the API.  Try setting the value of Diagram.FilterElements again without anything ticked in the Diagram Filters window.

To clear the existing stereotype, you need to set StereotypeEx = "".

Assigning a value to Element.Stereotype is additive.  E.g. if the element already has a stereotype "a" and you set Stereotype = "b", then "b" becomes the primary stereotype, but "a" will still remain as a secondary stereotype.  If you set StereotypeEx = "b" however, the "a" stereotype would be completetly removed and replaced by "b".

Hope that helps.

Just a guess, but those just look like placeholder topics that were never filled in.  Seems like they might have since been removed in the updated EA 13 help.  I'll check with our resident help guru.

If you are looking for general API reference documentation, see:

Otherwise, is there something specific that you are having trouble with?  Are you trying to use scripting for Diagrams?  Elements?  Model Search?  Simulation?

If you are having trouble generally creating and running scripts, can you please confirm whether you have EA Corporate editon or higher?

Bugs and Issues / Re: Build 1301 - What's been fixed?

As with previous EA beta releases, we don't produce release notes for each individual beta build.  If you want to find what has specifically changed between betas, the best you could do is to perform a text diff between the readme.txt files from those builds.  See:,26763.msg207902.html#msg207902,22720.msg191441.html#msg191441

General Board / Re: Keystore service with AUTHMETHOD=AM_SSKSGROUP
« on: June 21, 2016, 12:50:56 pm »
Individual Windows login names are not relevant when using the AM_SSKSGROUP authentication method.  When using this method, each user must include the name of the group they are authenticating with as part of the keystore address.

We suggest naming your groups more generally.  For example instead of having UserName=g52873, specify it as UserName=sysml.  Any users that require the Systems Engineering edition of EA can then connect to your keystore server using an address like: ssks://mykeystore?user=sysml

Create another group in your ssksgroupconfig file named "corp" (UserName=corp) which has an entitlement for Product=Corporate.  All other users in your scenario would then connect to the keystore using an address like: ssks://mykeystore?user=corp

General Board / Re: MariaDB suuport
« on: June 21, 2016, 11:36:45 am »
As you are aware, MariaDB is not officially supported, but we have heard anecdotally of instances where it seems to be working as long as you use the appropriate ODBC driver.

AFAIK - You will need to use the MySQL ODBC driver and it will only work as long as MariaDB maintains its compatibility with MySQL.

Make sure that the user performing the transfer has 'db_ddladmin' permission.


General Board / Re: Bringing in a SPARX model into SQL
« on: June 15, 2016, 05:17:04 pm »
Perhaps watch the following webinar video.  The first several minutes walks through the process of creating a new MySQL database, creating the table structure and then performing the initial data transfer.

Steps may vary slightly depending upon the specific database type you are working with, but refer to the EA help for more specific instructions.

SQL scripts for creating the required table structures on each supported DBMS can be found here:

General Board / Re: [Beta 13] Replace text in Code template editor
« on: June 13, 2016, 10:06:37 am »
Try Ctrl+R instead of Ctrl+F.

Ctrl+F is for "Find" (although the title of the dialog that appears is somewhat misleading)
Ctrl+R is for "Find and Replace"

Hi Geert,
I don't think the old toolbar exists anymore in EA 13 (at least not that I have seen), but you can access the Workspaces and Commands dialog under the Perspectives button on the Start ribbon tab (Start > Workspace > Perspectives).

As Simon M commented earlier, you can Minimize the ribbon so that it takes up less space.

See under "Minimizing the Ribbon Bar":

I've also noticed you can just double-click any of the ribbon tabs to easily toggle this option as well.

General Board / Re: Upgrade EA License
« on: June 01, 2016, 09:45:08 am »
Is renewal and upgrade the same?

How can I see that my current subscription have lapse already?
If your purchase was more than 12 months ago, then it will have lapsed.  If you are not sure, contact and they will be able to lookup this information for you.

If it already lapse, do i need to renew it first then upgrade it to ultimate version?

If you send an email to, they will be able to confirm your current maintenance status and provide quotes for renewals / upgrades that you require.
