Hi all,

I encountered an issue related to sequence diagram. When we double click on interaction fragment, EA redirects to another uncorrelated diagram in the same EAPX instead of showing properties dialog box of such fragment.

which is the root cause of this issue?

Thank you!

Hi all,

is it possible to retrieve each empty diagram inside the eapx repository with a SQL query inside EA?

Thank you in advance!

Hi all,

I noticed that Enterprise Architect 16 will have a lot of improvements related to a teamwork environment. On the official site we can read "New and expanded collaborative tools support a rich, co-operative team based approach to modeling".

We are using Lemontree in order to work in team on EA (uploading the eapx model on bitbucket repo), but it is a little bit struggling.

My question for you, community is: is there any way to work in team more efficiently with ea? I mean: is there any tool that allows multiple user to work simultaneously on EAPX online? Have you some positive feedback about other team work environment setup? Which is the software that is mentioned in the previous reported slogan on the website?

Thank you in advance!

Hi all,

I'm simulating an activity diagram using dynamic simulation with python code and I have few questions regarding this topic:

1) Which is the correct procedure in order to embed code inside an action? I know that I can define some behavior related to an action, but how can I invoke such behaviors during the simulations?
E.g. Action 1 has "increment()" function. How can I invoke increment function when the simulation token reaches such action?

2) Imagine this scenario:
- Activity diagram A
- Activity diagram B

Activity diagram B is invoked by Activity diagram A. How can I simulate this interaction by code? I mean, which is the code that I should write inside the diagram A in order to switch the simulation from the activity diagram A to the activity diagram B?

Once invoked the activity diagram B, is it also possible to continue to run also the activity diagram A? (I'm referring to model and simulate the synchronous/asynchronous call to other activity diagrams)

I appreciate some practical examples (also in other programming languages)  in order to understand better how to use code in simulation.

Thank you so much in advance.

Hi all,

I'm investigating about functional simulation capabilities on Enterprise Architect. So far we used Enterprise Architect just for describe some flow chart (e.g. activity diagram & sequence diagram) in SysML language. We usually perform the simulation of such algo with the aid of external SW (pyhton scripts and so on..)

Let'make an example with this activity diagram "check money value "                                               
                |                         |                             
                |       INSERT     |                             
                |       MONEY     |                             
                |     IF DOLLAR    |                             
                |                        |- ------------EXIT with DOLLAR
 and so on with additional decision nodes.....

My questions are:
1) is there any way to insert different inputs and check the algo result in a simulation made with EA? if yes, how to do that? 
2) Is there any way to define internal variables and check the status?
3) could you please indicate a book or reference guide or online material related to simulation with enterprise architect? 
4) Which kind of simulation do you usually perform with EA?

Thank you in advance                             

Hi all,

I'm searching for a keyboard shortcut in order to repeat the previous operation. For example, if I have to drav 50 connectors, I'm searching for a keyboard shortcut in order to automatically select the previous operation (draw connector). A sort of F4 that is present on excel.

Thank you in advance!

Hi all,

I need to extract from my model the created date and updated date for the following cases:

1) Each element of the model
2) Each Diagram of the model
3) Each element under package "X"

Anyone is able to provide me these query?

Thank you in advance

Hi all,

here my scenario:

- project A -> size: 100 MB
- project B (copied from project A in which I deleted a lot of content inside it) the size is always 100 MB

Which is the main reason? In the project B there is much less content, but the size is the same of project A.
I deleted the elements from the project browser.

Thank you in advance

Bugs and Issues / [EA 15.2] - Search box in HTML export
« on: April 06, 2021, 06:28:10 pm »
Hi All,

I'm looking for a simple method to add a search box into HTML model export.

Let me explain better: I usually share my model that has a lot of packages through EA HTML export. My request is to add a simple search box in the html export that helps the final user to quick find a diagram.

The search box could simply search by diagram name.

Anyone has some ideas regarding how to implement that? If yes,  could you please list few examples of the required HTML changes?

Thank you in advance!

Bugs and Issues / How to create index of project
« on: March 05, 2021, 09:45:59 pm »
Hi all,

I'm using EA to develop a complex system and in some part I would like to add an index of content inside the main page topic.

Let me explain better: imagine that I have this package structure:

 - Project CAR manufacturer
 --> Main page (this is a package diagram that reflects the project structure)
 --> "Motor"
         --> "Cylinders"
         --> "Gears"
 --> "Behaviors"
         --> "Start"
         --> "Stop"

I would like in the main page a sort of table of content that contains hyperlinks to each sub-diagram that reflect also hierarchy

Is there a way to implement this?

Thank you so much in advance

Bugs and Issues / [EA 15.2] Increase Font Size Custom table
« on: February 25, 2021, 06:51:53 pm »
HI all,

is there any way to increase the font size of the custom table?
Even if I increment the font size into the related menu, the modification is not effective.

Thank you in advance.

Bugs and Issues / [EA 15.2] Remove "from" indication into a diagram
« on: January 28, 2021, 10:19:11 pm »
Hi all,

I noticed that when I drag & drop an element to a diagram, a label appears that contains "From package_x".
Is there any way to remove this indication?

Thank you so much in advance.

Bugs and Issues / HTML export navigation links
« on: January 21, 2021, 10:50:42 pm »
Hi all,

I usually export my EAPX project into HTML in order to share info with other stakeholders.

If I export my project on www. example. it/index.htm, I noticed that even if I navigate into a specific diagram, the link in the address bar (example. it) doesn't change. In this way, the final user doesn't know the specific link related to the diagram that he wants to share.

I know that I can address the specific diagram using the GUID (www. example. it//index.htm?guid=XXX).

My question is: Is there any way to show the detailed links during user navigation? In this way, if user wants to share diagram X he simply copy the link into navigation bar (example. it/index.htm?guid=DIAGRAM X)

Thank you in advance!

Hi all,

I have a project that contains two sub project inside.

 - Project CAR manufacturer
 --> Main page (that is a package diagram that reflects the project structure)
 --> "CAR A"
 --> "CAR B"

Usually I export my project in html in order to share the content with other stakeholders, but I noticed an issue.
If I exclude package "CAR B" from report (using Design -> Manage - > report options) I noticed that this package disappears from project browser (as expected), but it doesn't disappear from the package diagram "Main page".

My question is: Is there any way to remove also the diagram representation of the excluded package? I mean, if I exclude package "A" from my project, this package should disappear from each package diagram that contains it.

Thank you in advance four your support

Hi all,

I'm writing this topic because I want to ask your advice about an EA capability.
First of all I'm going to explain my model with an example.

I have modeled a control system that is suitable for the application "A".
Now I have to model the same control system for another application called "B".

Since the requirements of application "A" are different from requirements related to the application "B", some parts of my already developed control system for "A" will change a little bit.

So my question is: I was thinking to develop the same control system for "B" inside the project related to "A" maybe highlighting differences between the parts of the control system for "A" vs. "B".
Is there any efficient method in EA that enable me to reach this goal? For example the EA project is called "Control System" and inside it i have two behavioral packages, one for the application "A" and one for "B". How can I highlight differences between behavior A & B?
which are the best practices in this case?

Thank you!
