Database check:  No Joy.
Re-install/Repair SPARX: No Joy.

But here is my work-around for what appears to be a missing forever context menu selection for documentation:
  • Turn on the "Publish"  Adds a popout menu with things like Start, Viewpoint, .., Publish
  • Select Publish
  • At the top of the Publish popout there is an option for "Generate Web Pages."  Click on it
  • Eureka!  The Publish to HTML is there.
    • The context menu selection seems to be long gone, though.  :(

I have been generating HTML output from SPARX models for quite some time.  But now, all of a sudden, the context menu option for "Documentation" is missing, and not matter what I try I cannot get it back.  I even added the menu to the Project Browser which includes "Documentation."  It does not work.   It is probably worth noting that as of late SPARX crashes some times at startup.  I cannot definitively say that there is a cause-affect relationship here.

Suggestions?  Help?

Thanks, Skiwi. 

I did not think about contacting Sales.  I contact support (no response).  I will try them.  Good suggestion!

General Board / How do I get SPARX to answer an Account Question?
« on: May 17, 2016, 11:30:09 pm »
I had my C-drive crash yesterday.  SPARX has to be reinstalled on a BU computer till I figure out what to do.  Here's the rub:  to activate SPARX I need my license key, which is associated with my change-every-year uid/pwd which has been lost because of the drive crash.

How do I get my current UID/PWD so I can look up my key?
How do I get SPARX to answer the email requesting help so I can login and get my key?

General Board / Security Classification Marking on Diagrams
« on: March 30, 2015, 08:56:23 pm »
In some circumstances it would be minimally advisable to add a classification display item to a diagram - Not Classified, (U) Unclassified, ...  

I thought about using and modifying the "Show Diagram Details" block that can be added to diagrams, but it appears to not be modifiable.  And the security features in SPARX are all associated with access control.  

So the question: has anyone faced this need, and how did they solve it?

Thanks!  It is, indeed, a Run-time State value, and I found the secret keystrokes to open the pane for adding/updating/displaying instance values (i.e., Right-click Instance -> cntl-Shft-R-> select attribute from drop-down list)

Thanks again!

I can find the Node Instance in the project browser.  No problem.  My *problem* is that the node instance contains instance attribute values that that I can not find **anyplace**.  Your suggestion -- the right-click in the Node Instance -> Find -> Locate Classifier in Project Browser -- results in navigating to the Node (not the node instance), and I can see the attributes that Ken Nielsen added to each of the Nodes.  But where, and how, do I get to the Instance Attribute Values??

I still can't find where Ken Nielsen, the apparent author of the example, added the instance attribute values.  Take a look at the EASAMPLE.eap that ships w/EA and tell me how you can get to these values.

In the EAExample provided with 7.0 (build 818), the Deployment/HQ Servers diagram includes node instances for the PowerEdge 2650 and others.  Depicted in the PowerEdge 2650 are what appear to be attributes (e.g., Disk Controller = RAID 5; Disks = 4X80GB; etc.)  Now here's the question (and the problem)--

I have *NO CLUE* how to access these items.  No, they do not appear to be attributes in the Deployment/Nodes/ Computer/Servers/Dell Poweredge 2650 attribute list.  Right clicking the Node instance does not yeild any access to these items.  

I surely would like to know where these 'items' came from, how to add others, how to specify specific values for the node instances, etc.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
