Suggestions and Requests / Special icons for elements with linked documents
« on: December 05, 2014, 06:53:31 pm »
This might be a good idea to display slightly modified icons in Project Browser for elements and packages with linked documents.

When on a diagram, such elements are marked with red "A" letter.
The same way to mark elements in Project Browser would be helpful in large projects, especially in multi-user projects projects, when sometimes the most of the notes is placed inside a linked document because of attached tables or pictures.

General Board / Sending and recieving parameterized signals
« on: July 08, 2015, 08:01:17 pm »
Hello, All!

My activity diagram contains two parallel flows:
  • Flow A periodically generates some random number and throws a signal using action of "SendSignal" kind
  • Flow B listens to signals (using action of "AcceptEvent" kind) and performs some action depending on the random number generated in flow A
When running simulation everything works as a charm, except I can't succeed in passing parameters to signal on SendSignal action and reading these parameters on AcceptEvent action.

Can anyone, please, explain:
  • How to assign values to signal attributes in SendSignal action? (there is an ability to bind input pins of SendSignal to signal attributes, but I suppose it doesn't work as expected)
  • How to read attributes of received signal in AcceptEvent action?
I am using EA 11.1.1113 with Corporate license.

Thank you!

General Board / Verify EA application version connecting to repo
« on: April 05, 2015, 11:03:01 pm »
Hello all!

In our company we are using a DBMS-based repository shared with different workgroups. Each workgroup has their own license pool and is able to use their own EA aplication version. The owner workgroup of the repository not long ago upgraded their licenses and asked group employees to install EA v11. But we still can not be sure employees from other workgroups are not using some legacy, beta or brand-new versions of EA application.

We suppose the simultaneous use of different client application versions can break the repository or some of it's elements. As for EA8 and EA11 - we'd already made some tests and figured out limitations, but we can't repeat those tests on any EA version.

Now we would like to monitor (or, preferably, to limit) access to our repository for untested versions of EA applications. Using add-ins is not an option: we are unable to force employees installing any kind of validating add-in. Workflow scripts are also of no use: from within those scripts there is no access to client app version data.

Any suggestions on how to limit repository clients by EA version would be appreciated. Thank you!

General Board / Using EA v8 and EA v11 in parallel
« on: June 21, 2014, 01:05:59 am »

We have two teams using the same SQL server hosted repository. This repository was created under EAv8 some years ago and currently stores lot of models and elements (10k+ at least).

One of the teams is about to upgrade their licenses and wish to install EA v11 client software.

The question is, whether it's possible to continue using two different versions of EA in parallel without loosing or corrupting any data in shared repository? Splitting our repository in two (one - to manage under EA8, the other - to manage under EA11 is not an option)

Thank you!

Bugs and Issues / Parameterized custom SQL search & model document
« on: July 23, 2014, 04:43:15 pm »
Dear All,

Faced this issue while trying EA11, build 1107:

1. Create custom SQL search "MySearch" with the statement
Code: [Select]
SELECT ea_guid AS CLASSGUID, Object_Type AS CLASSTYPE, Name FROM t_object WHERE t_object.Name='<Search Term>'
2. Add Requirement element to project. Name new element 'MY_SEARCH_TEST'

3. Create new master document 'TEST MASTER DOC'

4. Add new model document to 'TEST MASTER DOC', fill model document's tagged values as follows:
Code: [Select]

5. Run RTF report on 'TEST MASTER DOC'

6. No report is generated. Message 'SQL Search selected or zero results returned' is displayed in the output window.

On running the same search manually with the same search term I get no error and 'MY_SEARCH_TEST' element is selected.

Using non-parameterized search as model document data source returns no errors and report is generated as expected.

Reproducing steps 1-6 in EA8 returns no errors and report is generated as expected

What am I doing wrong? Isn't it a kind of bug?

Thank you!
