Additional Functionality Using the Cloud
Even without a license, the Pro Cloud Server provides the facility of connecting to models over a secure http connections (HTTPS). It also makes it possible to use these additional facilities on or within your models:
- OSLC Requirements Management
- Reusable Asset Service (RAS)
- Scheduled Tasks
OSLC Requirements Management
OSLC is an initiative to provide easier integration between Requirement Management tools. It uses HTTP to list, add, modify and delete requirements. The service provider definition to direct any OSLC client to is:
For example, if you were connecting to a server running on your own machine using the default settings, the connection would be:
Note, this is available in even an unlicensed Pro Cloud Server installation. The licensed Pro Cloud Server provides the OSLC RESTful API ("OSLC Architecture Management v2.0") which offers much greater access to data in your Pro Cloud models.
Reusable Asset Service (RAS)
The RAS portion of the Cloud Server helps you to define Packages that can be used in any model. When a Package is requested, Enterprise Architect and the Cloud Server will track cross-Package dependencies and make available everything required by that Package.
The Cloud Server includes optional support for running time-based updates to data. Currently, this is applied to updating a Time Series chart automatically to provide a dynamic view of how a model is changing over time. You can set different time scales for these updates, such as daily, weekly or monthly.
