Project Data Integrity

If you have a failed XMI import, network crash or other unforeseen event that could disrupt the integrity of information in the model, it is recommended to run the Project Integrity Check function.

The integrity check examines all database records and ensures there are no 'orphaned' records or inaccurate or unset identifiers. You can run the integrity checker first in report mode to discover if anything should be corrected, and then run it again in repair mode.

When Enterprise Architect checks the model, it attempts to recover lost packages and elements, and generates a new package at the model root level called _recovered_. Check through any elements that are found and, if required, drag them into the model proper. If they are not required, delete them.


This function does NOT check UML conformance, only the data relationships and repository structure.

You can select a variety of items to check, and select either to just report on the state of your model, or to try and repair any inconsistencies. The recovery process tries to restore elements where possible, but in some cases simply deletes the lost records.
