Batch Import Controlled Packages

You can import a group of Controlled Packages from Native/XMI format into Enterprise Architect in one step.

As the system processes each Package, it updates the 'Status' column against each Package name on the 'Batch XMI Controlled Packages' dialog.

  • If the import is successful, Enterprise Architect updates the Package status to 'Imported'
  • If the import is unsuccessful, Enterprise Architect updates the Package status to 'Not Imported'

Common reasons for an import to fail include:

  • The Package not being correctly configured
  • The last import file date matches the import date of the file currently on disk
