Bugs and Issues / Reverse engineering for ODBC in MySQL
« on: December 06, 2018, 09:13:27 am »
In a EAPX file I tried to reverse engineering a MySQL database in EA v 14.1 and the column types are wrong imported. For example, a column of type INT is mapped as type "494E54", which are the ASCII codes for the letters of the word INT (I=49, N=4E, T=54). The same happens for all the columns for all tables. It is the same when doing the reverse ODBC from the classic way or via "table diff" in the Database Manager.

Anybody having the same bug?

Or you can use the Info view option for the elements.

We have developed an automation running in the server-side that creates baselines automatically (without human interaction). Please contact us if you need it.

hi guys, if still needed, we have a tool for synchronizing EA and VSTS workitems

I prefer this option unchecked and lock all the model with different group locks. It is more complicated to set up because you need to define all the groups and restrictions first, but it is easier to use, because all users know that they can edit where they see the blue lock only. If lock is red, they only can view data.

If you want, we can make the installation for you. Please contact us if you still need it.

You have to add composite diagram for you element. This would create a diagram inside your element and the element would be flagged as "composite" which add a "O-O" like symbol in the diagram. Double clicking composite elements would open the internal diagram. If you need to open the properties window you have to select the element and press Alt + Enter

We have one! It works with projects and sync the Work-items to EA elements. Is this what you need?

We develop this kind of integration tools in the server side. Please contact us to get more info.

We have developed some apps (as windows services) that work in the server-side. There are many considerations to make them work, and we have developed them as standard apps that maybe could fit your needs. Check our forum signature to view the options.

All of them works in the following environment:
  • Server-side
  • Windows server 2008 R2 SP1 (not tested in equivalent or similar environments)
  • Server must have EA installed and a standard license set (not floating). Tested with EA v 13.0
  • Could work in EAP files, databases or Cloud Server
  • And the most important: they work even when there is no user session active in the server!

As they work as Windows Services, they could be customized to execute some tasks periodically (as create baselines, create connectors, send emails, update diagrams, etc).

Feel free to ask if need more info

We have one! It works with hosted projects and sync the Work items with EA elements. Is this what you need? or do you have a local TFS installation in your network of legacy TFS and need sync?

We develop this kind of integration tools in the server side. Please contact us to get more info.

Another option is to create not a Project Browser script but a Diagram Script, so you can drag into a diagram the packages you need, then select them in the diagram and in a Diagram script you could get the list of elements selected in diagrams (or packages).

I think it's easier to drag and drop the elements in the diagram than creating a diagram script or something similar to make it work. Have in mind you will need in the elements representing the items in the RoadMap, the starting and ending time. You could define them as tagged values... then make them to relocate based on diagram zoom and element tagged values...
... or just drag and drop them.

It is easier if you create a document template. Then execute the template for the package containing the diagram.

Even when using baselines, it is recommended you have a different backup system for your model. If you are working on an EAP file-based repository you should have copies of your file in case of crash or easy restore of data (sometimes it is easier to restore a file than restore from a baseline).

If you are using a DBMS repository, you should have backups of the database in case something fails.

Obviously, saying this is too late for you, but it is the recommendation for you and the other people reading this post.

Enable security. That's just what it was designed for. If on takes two steps (lock, delete) it's intentional.


The idea is to allow connecting elements but not to delete them. It could be better designed if Delete elements was a permission different from Update elements.
