Suggestions and Requests / More attributes for tests
« on: July 18, 2007, 03:37:27 am »

for our tests, we need the attribute "Version" and/or "Revision", to mark, against which version and/or svn-revision of the software the test was executed.

We also need test-reports, that show the results of the tests for a given firmware version.
(To run all tests, we need a couple of weeks, so we can't execute all tests every time, we have a new version).

Please add these fields, or even better, add the possibility to add custom fields to tests.

Suggestions and Requests / delete unused elements
« on: July 17, 2006, 11:08:37 pm »

it would be helpful, to have a menu entry in the context menu of folders in the project view, to delete all unused elements in a given package.

Doing this manually is a lot of work.

Suggestions and Requests / more than one instance of elements?
« on: May 28, 2005, 12:08:31 am »

to avoid dublification of substates I need the possibility to use
parametrizised substates.

In the model of the user interface I have a substate to enter
a doselimit.
I need it twice in the main state diagram, once to enter the
4h doselimit and once for the 8h doselimit.

If I try to drag the substate a second time on the main state
diagram, I get the error message:
"Only one instance of element allowed!"

- when will this limitation be removed?
- is there a known workaround?

Suggestions and Requests / Deleting elements in diagrams
« on: January 16, 2006, 10:50:26 pm »
If I add an element to a diagram and delete it directly afterwards,
it remains in the database.

It would be very nice  8), if EA could ask in this situation:
"Do you want to delete the element xxx completly from the database?".

With "this situation" I mean, if I delete an element that isn't used in any other diagram.

Suggestions and Requests / Show requirements in class diagram
« on: August 01, 2005, 02:46:43 pm »

I can show internal requirements (responsibilities) in the class diagram.
Sometimes I move them to external, and they are not displayed any longer.
This is a pity, as I like the compact way to display the requirements regarding a class in the class diagram.

Please add the option "Display external requirements" to the visibility context menu of the class elements (or to a better place).

« on: July 17, 2005, 05:11:17 am »

it would be nice, if it would be possible to show the constraints of attributes and operations on a class diagramm like this:

- length: integer = 0 { >= 0 }

+ getLength: integer {isQuery}

Suggestions and Requests / More than one instance of an element
« on: June 12, 2004, 06:19:32 am »

it would be extremly useful to have the possibility to create more than one instance of:

- a subactivity
- a substate

in an activity or state diagram.

(parameterized substates or subactivities)

Thanks for you good work!


Suggestions and Requests / Embedding pictures (.jpg or .png)
« on: February 02, 2004, 05:18:52 pm »

for the documentation of the userinterface it would be nice to have the ability to embed pictures (.png or .jpg files) into diagrams.

Add an picture object similar to the text-note object.

Suggestions and Requests / bug tracker missing
« on: January 21, 2004, 12:44:54 am »

it would be great to have a database based bug tracker for EA. This helps to keep an overview.

Mantis ( is an easy-to-install php based open source bugtracker.

Free alternatives:
bugzilla ( (a little bit hard to install).
scarab ( (very many features, clean design, java based).

It could be used to keep track of feature requests, too.

I think it would help a lot, if at least registered users could have direct access to a web based bug-tracking system.

Suggestions and Requests / C Code Generation
« on: November 11, 2003, 05:54:30 pm »

I would like to see C code generation in Enterprise Architect.
There is an open source project, that implements this feature for UML-Diagrams created with the graphic tool DIA:

The code generator is only 330 lines of C Code, so it should be possible to adapt it to EA without too much work.

Suggestions and Requests / enumerations in delphi
« on: June 26, 2003, 08:04:21 pm »

it would help me a lot if there would be forward and reverse engeneering of enumerations for the delphi (object pascal) language.


TEventClass = (logEvent=10, logBolus, logBlackbox);

General Board / Exclamation mark in front of a diagram?
« on: March 25, 2008, 10:58:31 pm »
What is the meaning of an exclamation mark in front of the diagram name in the project browser?
This seams to be new in EA 7.1.

I have a project, that I want to give to a consultant, who has the EA reader only.

How can I disable user security in the copy that he will get, so that he can read the model?

General Board / Error when copying diagrams
« on: November 12, 2007, 12:51:31 am »
if I copy a diagram with the option "deep copy" I get the following error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers[-2147467259]
ERROR: function val(character varying) does not exist; error while executing the query.

The diagram is copied, but the links between the notes and element features are are broken.

We are using EA 7.0.818 with psqlODBC 8.2.500 and postgreSQL version 8.2.4 with ssl encryption enabled.

Any hints appriciated.
