Suggestions and Requests / Re: Active Directory / LDAP integration
« on: July 16, 2021, 10:12:48 pm »
Oops, I forgot to mention that there shall be no space before or after the "=" character.

I have no clue what happens if the AD group name itself contains spaces. I am not an "AD guy". Somehow I would expect that AD groups with spaces in its name are impossible on AD server side.
But if this is possible I would have tried: AUTHMETHOD_OPTIONS="your Ad User Group".

Check in your keystore config file if you truly have no space characters in the line of AUTHMETHOD_OPTIONS

Check in your *.adconfig file if you have no space characters in the "Name" line
   # The common name of the Active Directory group

Maybe that helps.

not sure if my topic also relates to Pro Cloud Service, but at least if applies to the "old" Cloud Service, that was superseded by Pro Cloud.

If I use the Config Client to configure the many database managers, the different settings are stored in the Windows Registry in path HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Sparx Systems\SQLBridge\DBManagers.
Looking at the registry I see the following entries for a database manager:
- acceptConnections = "true"
- ConnectionString = "rdvp!BV]9dRfOztOB_,M(E&:H:t`RI*H=.MqsQB}2(!=R/+ADr\\H[;>:b0\"{$I55O&v;aW/fZRW,X"
- MaxConnections = "50"
- ReadOnly = "false"
- RunScheduledTasks = "false"
- SecureOnly = "false"

As I need more than 100 database managers for same number of EA Models I would like to "auto-create" the DB managers.
Only the ConnectionString gives me a big headache :-[.
This weird "encryption" is a real pain.

Does anybody know how this string was created? Idea: Take readable string -> encrypt -> use encrypted in DB manager.
Does anybody know if and how I can use an readable connection string instead? I tried, but without success so far.
Any other idea how I can generate > 100 database managers using e.g. a Python script? I do not want want me or anyone to configure that manually :o.

PCS General Board / How to use the "floating license server" of PCS?
« on: April 15, 2021, 04:32:12 pm »
Hello all,
I am currently setting up a new EA server. As the "old" Keystore Service is discontinued and superseded by PCS I would like to to use PCS's floating license server capabilities in the "unlicensed edition" of PCS (4.2.65).
Currently we do not see the need for Prolaborate, WebEA and the other fancy new stuff of PCS. That might change in the future, but not now.

First obstacle:
After installation I cannot connect/link to the keystore using the Floating License Config Client :(.
  • The "Sparx Systems Professional Cloud" windows service is running. The configuration is at default, no change in the *.config file.
  • I am working on localhost, so no firewall issues.
  • Neither ssks:// not https:// protocol works
Which protocol to choose? On old keystore service it simply was ssks://.
If HTTPS is the one to choose, how to deal with the certificate stuff? Either I am blind or there is really no documentation about this.

a colleague sometimes observers that the "Require User Lock to Edit" option sometimes gets unchecked automatically.
Not a big deal to set it checked again, but we are wondering how this can happen.

We are using EA 14.1 (rollout of 15.2 is in preparation).
We do not have EA script in use that uncheck this option.

Has anyone also observed such behaviour?
Any idea what might cause this?
Any idea how to "prevent" this?

Bugs and Issues / Re: EA15 - missing scrollbar in the toolbox
« on: September 04, 2020, 08:09:29 pm »
I strongly support this feature request.
Scrollbars are the way to usability, as long as mouse and keyboard are used.
Fast and precise scrolling is now impossible. Only mouse wheel and the mentioned buttons work.

I saw this behavior when I installed EA 15.2 yesterday and I nearly lost faith.

General Board / Re: No connectors shown after XMI import
« on: July 20, 2020, 11:00:32 pm »
The missing connection you are referring to, is a Connector between the ports of the original classes.
Once you create properties (or instances) out of the classes the ports are not the ports of the original classes. And therefore the connector between the "original ports" does not exist between the ports of the property elements.

If you want the ports of the property elements to be connected you have to connect them on your own.
The original connection is not "derived" to the property elements.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Tag sorting
« on: March 19, 2020, 01:56:38 am »
Just guessing:
Maybe it helps to sort the "tags" in project browser of the MDG model, when the tags still are "just" attributes, before the MDG is generated.

This at least helps to keep desired sorting of stereotypes when used in a toolbox.

General Board / Re: Where is the "model default diagram" stored?

That worked  :)
Thanks a lot.

General Board / Where is the "model default diagram" stored?
« on: February 05, 2020, 09:49:59 pm »
does anybody know in which database table the "model default diagram" is stored?

I have a model in which I cannot set the model default diagram using the UI.
I hope to get it set by directly manipulating the storage location in the database.

General Board / Re: EA and PostgreSQL x64
« on: December 06, 2019, 08:26:20 pm »
Thanks Eve, good hint.

Up to now I had the psqlODBC database driver installed in a x86 version (downloaded file name was
Now I replaced that with (no postfix like x86 or x64). This seems to combine x86 und x64 driver versions (yes, I am aware that there is already a version 12 of the driver).

And *tadaaa* I can open my models on the "PostgreSQL 12 x64 server".

General Board / Re: EA and PostgreSQL x64
« on: December 05, 2019, 10:23:04 pm »

are there any news on the usage of 64 bit database management systems, e.g. PostgreSQL x64?

This page does not provide any information on this:

We would like to update from PostgreSQL 9.5 to (preferably) the latest version 12.1.
But beginning with PostgreSQL 11 no more 32 bit version are offered:

Sorry for warming up this really old topic, but I run now into are quite similar problem.

If I refer to the last two post right before this one.
1. No EA key - Launch EA from that user account with GUI to add a key.
2. User has no permissions to create COM objects.

1. This is a "Passed". Our "Jenkins user account" has an EA license. Being logged in as that user and starting the EA GUI works without any problems.
2. This is probably a "Failed". How can I find out if the user has the right to create COM objects?

Many thanks.

Seems to work :). Thanks a lot.

But who in this world, designs a programming language that is using () instead of [] for index based accesses. This is insane!
I truly spent ~ 4 hour on this issue. Now I will go into the basement and smash something against the floor to soothe my rage >:(.

Hello all,
in an EA script (using EA 14.1) I would like to create and access :o a list of integers.
I want store the element IDs of a bunch of classes and objects in that list and do some checks on this.

What I did:
Code: [Select]
set listOfDs = CreateObject("System.Collections.ArrayList")
Now I would like to access the elements in the list.
But unfortunately there is no listOfIDs.GetAt(<index>) method.
When trying to access an element with the [] operator I get an error message.
Code: [Select]
Session.Output listOfIDs[0]leads to the error message: "Expected end of statement".

Any idea how to access the element in the ArrayList?
Are there alternatives to the ArrayList (number of elements to be in the list is unknown, so dynamic resizing would be great)?
