General Board / Custom search - gone
« on: August 10, 2022, 06:57:02 pm »
Hello all,

I created several custom searches , that were visible under "My Searches" in "Find in Project" search window.  The were used in some Relationship Matrixes.  After switching to EA 16 I can't see them anymore.  I suppose they are still in the database - would you happen to know how to find them back ?

Best regards

General Board / Element filters - missing stereotypes
« on: February 14, 2022, 07:05:18 pm »

when creating custom document templates, one can use element filters to include only elements matching filter criteria.  However, it seems that some stereotypes missing , like 'view'.  Do you know where can those stereoptypes be addeed ?

General Board / SQLQuery object - query code
« on: February 11, 2022, 11:11:48 pm »

when doing data modelling , there is a possibility of using object named of type SQLQuery.  Contrary to i.e. View, it does not seem to have a proper place to store SQL code of its definition, part of a tag attribute SQL that does not seem to be linked to any bigger text field.  I am aware that using Database Builder make possible to record such queries, but there is a reason I do not want to use database builder.
I can use Note attribute of the element, but I was hoping there would be a dedicate attribute with similar availability as Note.

Does anyone have any idea ? 

Best regards

General Board / User defined search - element attributes
« on: February 01, 2022, 08:32:04 pm »

I have some elements, for which I defined tagged values.  There might be : Element {Type=MyType, AnotherTag=MyTag} and Element2 {Type=MyType, AnotherTag=DifferentTag}.
Is there any simple way to either build a query, or use SQL query (without pivots etc), that would allow finding Element + AnotherTag, using Type as filter (or part of where clause) ?

Best regards

General Board / Model search - sharing custom searches
« on: January 06, 2022, 09:05:25 pm »

I created some specific searches related to one of our projects. There is no security applied in the EA, so everyone accesses it with the same (presumably) permissions.  Those searches are both custom searches build with Query Builder, and some with SQL Editor.  Some users can see them.  Some cannot.  Would you happen to have any idea why certain users do not see those searches, not even "My Searches" in the Find window ?


General Board / Project management model - tasks and resources
« on: November 30, 2021, 10:43:41 pm »

we are using Project Management model to run our project through Scrum methodology.  It seems however that allocation of resources to elements (i.e. tasks) does not show graphically on the element.
The same resource allocation to other elements, (i.e. Kanban::Feature on Kanban board) works fine and resource allocation with a progress bar is displayed, as described here.

Does anyone know how to ensure such allocation is visible ?

General Board / Connectors - changing appearance
« on: September 24, 2021, 02:14:26 am »
It seems that some people do not like zooming in because they cannot then see the whole picture.  So they ask for font size to be changed on connectors.  Would any of you have any idea how to change an appearance of a connector, so that the text associated with it could use a bigger font ?

Please don't throw stones at me ...

General Board / Smart data import (from CSV/XLS) ?
« on: September 15, 2021, 01:57:06 am »

Is there any way to import a list , that would contain e.g parent and child, allowing EA to create both parent, child, and dependency between them (specified in the list) ?  Not even dreaming about specifying different packages to import parent and child, but such small magic would already be helpful.

Any hints here :-) ?

Best regards

General Board / Packgae baselines - including linked objects ?
« on: September 09, 2021, 01:47:09 am »

is there a way to ensure that objects added to the model as links (but not to the content of the package) are included in the baselines ?  It seems my 15.2 does not get to see linked objects, and hence baselining does not really work as I would expect it to work.  As it is supposed to work not just on package content, but includes also "visual" aspect - why doesn't it see linked objects ?

Thanks for any tips,

General Board / Print to PDF - still not fixed ?
« on: September 01, 2021, 06:19:50 pm »
I have seen some dated posts about exporting to PDF, and yet today I found that printing a diagram to PDF is as bad as it could be.  Do you have any workaround/resolution for it ?  I need to print whole diagram on a single, big PDF page and the way it comes out now is ... crap, split over multiple pages.

General Board / Extending existing elements with tags and attributes
« on: August 26, 2021, 09:52:57 pm »

is there an easy way of extending/stereotyping existing elements e.g. UML Component with custom tags and/or attributes, in a way that each new Component element of given stereotype would inherit the list of defined attributes/tags ?
I did try to follow this article, but it is quite inacurate.  Also, tried using metaclasses with a base class of a Component, but still failed.  Help  :-X please.

General Board / EA slow when using networked repo
« on: July 09, 2021, 04:25:44 pm »
Hello ladies and gents,

we are using our EA with a network repository sitting somewhere on the server.  However, working this way is quite slow, as any diagram that's a bit more complex takes time to be pulled out of the repo.  Working with local files is not an option.  Would you happen to have any hints or suggestions on making it faster ?  Perhaps there is some kind of setting like caching that I am not aware of ?

Best regards

General Board / So what about RSS ;-) ?
« on: June 01, 2021, 04:04:20 pm »
I know that some folks had already asked for it, but perhaps a small ping as a reminder wouldn't make any harm. It would be useful to have RSS on Latest News and General board.  Thank you for bringing it to the attention of Sparx team.

General Board / Extending existing class - tutorial ?
« on: May 06, 2021, 06:03:14 pm »

I am looking for a tutorial/documentation on extending existing classes.  As one of our needs is to extend UML Component class with custom attributes, and define (where applicable) a LOV for some of those attributes.  I have found several articles about creating UML profiles, however, I was not able to find a consistent guide from start to end for creating an own class extending existing class, defining attributes and their (default) values, and then being able to use this class in models.   I suppose a meta-model needs to be created using such extended class but it is a bit unclear for the moment.

I would appreciate if anyone could point me out into a right direction.

Best regards

General Board / Licensing EA over multiple networks
« on: April 08, 2021, 05:50:12 pm »

my organization runs multiple networks.  We have a requirement to have EA on each of them.  How does licensing model work in such case ?  Can existing set of licenses be reused on each network, or do we have to split the amount of licenses between different networks ?

Best regards
