Cloud Page

The 'Cloud' page is generally maintained by a model or project administrator. It provides options to:

  • Configure the Properties window for each element and diagram to provide a WebEA URL that can be copied and sent to a user (by, for example, email) so that they can directly link to that object in WebEA
  • Enable HTML pages for Linked Documents, and Diagram Images and Image Maps for all Enterprise Architect diagrams, to be generated and updated in cache for access from WebEA

Auto create Diagram Image and Image Map (each time a Diagram is saved)

(In the Corporate, Unified and Ultimate editions) Select this checkbox to create Diagram Images and image-maps for all diagrams. These images and image-maps will be automatically updated whenever the diagram content changes.

This option is necessary for publishing the model via the Pro Cloud in WebEA.

Deselect the checkbox to stop creating images and image-maps for diagrams. A prompt displays through which you specify whether to retain or delete the existing images and image-maps in the model.

Auto create HTML Page (each time a Linked Document is saved)

This option is necessary for publishing the model via the Pro Cloud in WebEA.

Deselect the checkbox to stop creating HTML pages for Linked Documents. A prompt displays through which you specify whether to retain or delete the existing HTML pages in the model.

Pro Cloud Server Features Linked Documents

Batch create Diagrams and/or Linked Documents cache

(Only if you have selected the 'Auto create Diagram Image and Image Map' and/or 'Auto create HTML Page' options.)

Click on the 'Create' button to page through the diagrams and Linked Documents of the model, creating an initial diagram image and image map for each diagram and an initial HTML page for each Linked Document.

You should only need to do this occasionally, to force a wholesale update of the cache; normally the individual diagram images and Linked Document pages are updated automatically when the original object is changed.

Integrations

It is possible to connect a non-Cloud model to the Integration Plugins provided by Pro Cloud Server.

Configuration options to connect a non-cloud model to External Data Integration Plugins hosted on a Pro Cloud Server

To enable this feature:

  • Tick the 'Enable' check -box
  • Enter a connection string to a Pro Cloud Server (it is not necessary to include a 'Data Source'  or 'DNS')
  • Click on the Fill Providers button to populate the list of available external data providers
  • Tick any providers that should be made available to this model

Note: The connection string for a Cloud connection can be obtained via the Manage Project window, by right-clicking on a recent connection and selecting 'Edit connection string'.

Notes

  • In the Corporate, Unified and Ultimate editions of Enterprise Architect, if security is enabled you must have 'Manage Project Settings' permission to set 'Auto create Diagram Image and Image Map' and the WebEA URL and model number
