I just realized that some elements e.g. Event has no rectangle representation but most elements have.
I intended to use an Event as basis for a stereotype having a shape script extending rectangle representation. Is there any understandable reason why e.g. an Actor has but an Event has not a Rectangle Representation?

I use connector direction to provide reading directions for users.
“Car” “has” “Engine” were the direction from “has” goes from Car to Engine to ensure that the user does not read “Engine” has “Car”.

However this direction is not bound to the connector but to the connector on a diagram.
In other words each time I use the connector in an other diagram I have to set the direction anew.

I thing binding the direction to the connector only should be there.
Is there a sense in that current implementation or is that just a wrong implementation? :-\

Any opinions?

On the history page for V12.1
I found following:
Specify ReportAuthor, ReportTitle, ReportName, ReportVersion, ReportStatus and ReportAlias by adding tagged values to the generated package

But what does it mean?
Using package attributes like ReportAuthor, ReportTitle, ReportName, ReportVersion, ReportStatus and ReportAlias as report constants was already there in Vxx <V12.1.

Does it mean that I can now specify my own tagged values as reporting constants, and if so how do I use them in a document template?

General Board / Migrating from SysML1.3 to 1.4
« on: May 20, 2016, 12:29:08 am »
I now switched to V12.1 and by that, I want to switch my models from SysML 1.3 to SysML 1.4 as well.

There are not many differences between 1.3 and 1.4 but some exist e.g. the unit and quantity kind are now no longer stereotypes but instance specification.

Do I just have to change the type of the diagrams from SysML 1.3 to 1.4, or do I have to consider something else.

Is there anyone who could give me assistance?

General Board / Cloud Connection Experience
« on: May 18, 2016, 03:00:15 am »
Has anyone managed to get acceptable could connection to India e.g. from North America, Europe, Australia?
Currently our connection is pure (even no difference between ODBC and cloud according to my colleges in India), but I am not sure if our infrastructure is the problem or something more fundamental.

So I would be happy to hear from someone having good results, to find out if it is worth to improve what we have.

This link:
describes how to distribute a model template with MDG.
However the template file is expected to be deployed in the EA installation folder.

This feature request asks for embedding the model template in the generated mdg file to have the mdg file containing everything what is intended to be distributed.

General Board / Incorporate Model Templates Problem
« on: May 09, 2016, 08:29:28 pm »
I tried to distribute a model template as described here:

What I expected was, that once the MDG technology file based on the MTS file is generated, that the technology file embeds my model template rather than just link to my local place were the xmi file is stored.
But unfortunately it is not.
Is there a way to embed a model template xmi into a MDG technology file?

We have a MSSQL repository based in Germany and some users in India. For that model is security enabled and the users are imported from our ADS.
Currently users in India have problems to login. They are often (not always) asked to insert there passwords but even inserted correct they do not get access to the repository.
I assume this is some kind of network/timeout problem.

I have already contacted Sparx support but maybe somebody in the forum has an idea on how to isolate the problem.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Script Debugging do not work
« on: April 30, 2016, 04:30:19 am »
I changed my PC and now I can not debug any script.

Error Message
[22781951]      Failed to create Debugging process
"C:\KBApps\Sparx Systems\EA\vea\x86\SSProfiler32.exe" "C:\KBApps\Sparx Systems\EA\vea\x86\SSAgent32" "7916"

Remarks: Visual Studio is installed on my machine. Microsoft Script debugger is installed.

EA V12 build 1215

Any idea?

I get problems when I baseline lager packages within EA, when I am connected via cloud connection.

Sometimes I get an error while the baseline creation is running but always  get an error message at the end (after temp xmi file is created).
However the baseline is created anyway (but who knows if correct?).

Error message is:
Sparx System Cloud service [2009]
Error retrieving results: WAIT_TIMEOUT
When using an ODBC connection I do not have those problems at all

Any idea (cloud connection goes over IIS)?

General Board / Problems with “Use Stereotype Icons”.
« on: April 21, 2016, 11:18:02 pm »
I have defined a stereotype with an icon attribute set.

The icon is shown in the project browser when the element has as primary stereotype my “icon stereotype”.

But the icon is not visible on the element in the diagram as shown here:

Any idea?

General Board / mts files ModelTemplates section handling
« on: April 20, 2016, 11:46:54 pm »
I added im my MDG MTS file content as described here:

EA is adding later the attributes “default” and “filter” (see below)!
<Model name="Model" description="This is the default repository structure for system engineering." location="ModelTemplate.xml" default="" icon="34" filter=""/>

Does anyone know what these attributes are used for.
I am looking for a way to get my templates presented to the user, in a more specific section than “Other”.

When you have several profile packages you want e.g. to distribute in a MDG, you have to handle each package with the GUI manually.
However to be reproducible, specially for more complex profiles, it would help very much if the whole MDG could be generated by a script. A first step to allow this reproducibility is to have a method allowing creating an uml profile xml file from a package by a script.

I have a still growing amount of profile packages and I would like to write a small script to generate the xml-profile files.
Up to now I did not find the right methods. Do anyone know if such a method exist, and if so could you point me to that method?

Bugs and Issues / What happens with Scope in ControlFlow Link Targets?
« on: April 19, 2016, 09:49:56 pm »
When I compare a model with a baseline or an imported asset package, were the result should be to find no differences, scope in ControlFlow Link Targets are different at any time.
Scope in the model is always "empty" "" but in the reference (baseline, model) it is set to "public".
