Design Masters - QEA

Creating a master repository is the first step when working with Enterprise Architect's replication. This process converts an existing QEA repository to a master repository. This master repository provides a base for creating QEA replicas that can be modified independently and later synchronized back to the master.



Settings > Model > Transfer > Replication > QEA Replication > Make Design Master

Create a design master




Create a back-up of the required .qea or .qeax repository.


Open the repository


Select the 'Make Design Master' menu option and follow the on-screen instructions.

Master usage

Once created you can work with the master and/or replica files as normal. Any changes applied on the master will be propagated to the replicas on synchronization. This can be useful where there are requirements or foundation classes that are only updated by higher level teams on the master.
