Update Package Status

Elements in Enterprise Architect can be assigned a current status, such as Proposed, Validated or Mandatory.

Often a complete package structure is updated from one status to another (or released) at the same time. To help facilitate this, Enterprise Architect supports a 'bulk' update of element status at the same time.

Update Element Status for a Complete Package Structure

To update element status for a complete package structure, follow the steps below:

  1. In the Project Browser, right-click on the package to update. The context menu displays.
  2. Select the Package Control | Update Package Status menu option. The Status Update dialog displays.
  3. Select:
  • The new status
  • Whether to recursively descend the package tree
  • Whether to include elements
  • Whether to include element requirements
  • Whether to include element constraints
  1. Click on the OK button. Enterprise Architect updates all required elements to the new status.
