System Integration

This icon opens the External Data facility for defining how the data from external sources is represented in Enterprise Architect.

When developing a model in Enterprise Architect you could connect to an external application such as TFS or JIRA as the data source. You would then indicate how data items in one application are reflected in the other. Subsequently, you can check the pairings of data items from separate external tools, using the 'Show All Linked Items' menu option.
