Create Replicas - QEA

A replica QEA repository is one of several copies of a QEA master repository. You create replicas of the master repository for users to modify independently then synchronize these back to the master.

You can create as many replicas as needed. It is recommended to give these meaningful names to help identify each replica. For example if the master is called "Model.qea" then suitable names could be "Model-ReplicaDevGrpA.qea" or "Model-Janes-Replica.qea". This will help identify the replica when synchronizing changes back to the master and help avoid mistakes synchronizing the wrong file.

Create a replica

Step

Action

1

First create a replication master repository, then select the 'Create New Replica' menu option and follow the on-screen instructions.

2

Edit the replica over time and, when required, return the file for merging with the master repository.

3

As the merge updates the replica with any changes on the master repository, for future work, ensure that you use the merged replica from the master.

Notes

  • In the Corporate, Unified and Ultimate Editions of Enterprise Architect, if security is enabled you must have 'Manage Replicas' permission to create a replica.
