Update Package Status

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

Often a complete package structure moves from one status to another (such as for release) in one operation. To help facilitate this, Enterprise Architect supports a 'bulk' update of package and element status, phase and version.

Access:    Project Browser package context menu | Package Control | Update Package Status

Use to:

  • Update the following element fields in the selected package:
  • Status
  • Phase
  • Version
  • Define the scope of the update
