WebEA websites are configured to allow access to one or more Enterprise Architect models, each of which can be configured independently to only grant access to users with valid logon credentials. WebEA user validation supports two forms of security: 1) an access code and 2) standard Enterprise Architect model security. These two validation methods can be used independently or in combination in each model.
Users of WebEA will need to be advised of their login credentials for each model, which will include:
- An access code, or
- A user ID and password, or
- Possibly all three
This data will be provided to you by your Web Administrator or by the Project Manager responsible for the model.
The first page that is displayed in WebEA is the 'Login' page, which lists the models available to you.
Select the model you want to open, then click or tap on either the Mobile, Tablet, or Desktop button. The button selected determines whether the Browser and Properties View will be enabled by default.
If access to your model requires only an access code, then the 'Login' page prompts you for this.
- The red asterix (*) denotes a mandatory field.
- Access Codes are not required for Windows Authentication or OpenID authentication.
If User Security has been applied to the model, the 'Login' page prompts you for your user ID and password.
If the model requires both an access code and a user id/password, the 'Login' page prompts for both together:
Single Sign On
This feature is available from Enterprise Architect Release 14.1 and Pro Cloud Server Release 3.0 build 23.
If the Enterprise Architect model has been configured to for Windows and or OpenID authentication then the 'Login' page will show the relevant single sign buttons 'Login with OpenID' or 'Login with Windows ID'. Clicking the OpenID login button will redirect the user to the OpenID Server Authentication page. After authenticating with OpenID the browser will automatically return to WebEA and log the user in.
If the user is already authenticated with OpenID, the OpenID website might not be displayed, and the user will simply be logged in.
If the model is configured to also allow manual login then both the Single Sign On buttons and manual login fields will be visible on the Login page. If the option 'Restrict access to Windows & OpenID users only' is checked then the manual login fields will not be available.
If you do not have the authorization data, click or tap on theto go back and select another model.
Otherwise, type in your access code and/or user ID and password, and click on the.
