General Board / Reusable Asset Service
« on: September 27, 2016, 10:05:59 pm »
The 'Reusable Asset Service'  looks as though it could be handy to support re-use and avoid duplication of architectural frameworks, model elements and structures, but has anyone used this for real?  If so, can you answer these questions:

1)  If I copy a reusable asset into my model, can that asset copy then be edited, essentially compromising the centralised original?
2)  If the central reusable asset is updated (updates will be few and intermittent but will happen) what is the process to update the previous version that has been copied into models elsewhere?   (I see in the help that I can compare my copy of the asset with the latest version in the asset server, but what do I do if I find differences?)
3)  if I create relationships from my model to the re-usable asset that I've copied, can I get a holistic view/report of where the re-usable asset is being applied/used or am I creating a mess because I can never reconcile where the copied re-usable asset is being used ?   

thanks.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Glossary Tool Tip

I'd prefer the old method too.  Your eye line is usually where the mouse is, so the tooltip is very useful when reading and floating the mouse over a glossary entry.   

It seems poor usability to me to require the user to switch focus to the status bar and then back to the text where the glossary entry is being used.

Bugs and Issues / Re: 1304: Release Notes?
« on: August 15, 2016, 08:08:18 pm »

I can't see any release notes - as usual.
I get the feeling we can request these until we're blue in the face but we'll still never get them.

That's very useful Simon. 

So am I to conclude that BPMN is out of scope for the XMI interchange?

I'm on the bus so I can't download the new Beta.  However, will there be some release notes anywhere?  The last two relases had no indication of what has changed.

Paolo

Don't hold your breath.

You need to turn on the audit: Project/Auditing

q.
That's a heavyweight solution to the problem.

I often think that it would be useful to have an option where the author field is updated with the last modifier.  In an enterprise situation, who last touched an item is more informative than the original author who has since moved on and long disappeared.  If you really wanted to retain the original author, you could copy it to a tagged value.

Thoughts?
Should I pop in a feature request?

Paolo

Agreed Paolo.  I would like a lightweight way to retain the original author as well as the the last author/editor.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Build 1301 - What's been fixed?
« on: June 22, 2016, 12:15:51 am »
This is quite irritating actually.  I assume Sparx would like as much participation in beta testing as possible, but then they make it difficult to assess/show the beta is progressing.

Oh yes!  Just fixed it.

I contacted help and the only answer I got was that support for Visual Studio 2015 is not on the radar at all.  Is there any new news on this?

Work Item integration is an absolute necessity if you expect businesses that use TFS to use EA for requirements management.  VS & TFS 2015 and Visual Studio Team Services (was Visual Studio Online) is what everyone I work with is using and new projects can't use Sparx because of the lack of Work Item integration.

So,  ArchiMate 3.0 is published.  See https://www2.opengroup.org/ogsys/catalog/C162.

When will Sparx support this version?
When our implementation is ready.

I think that means:
1)  Yes Sparx will support Archimate 3.0 at some point
2)  When that point is, is undefined, or at least not for publication.
