General Board / Export elements from several subpackages to CSV

General Board / Adding bends to existing connectors
« on: February 13, 2018, 11:27:48 pm »
I see that there is functionality to hold Down Shift while drawing a new connector. But is there a way to draw bends on existing connectors? I got loads of diagrams using the same connector and I only get to choose the defalut Routing types after the first diagram. Makes it very hard to make the diagram look pretty (and readable).

Scripting is  the way to go. There are some EA wrappers on GitHub to get you started.

Here is a wraper (and diagram code) I have made and used.

Using the Diagram Loayout functionality was not good enough. So there is alot of coordinates to keep track of.

General Board / Re: Using a central local help library

Thanks for replies. Was able to move Help System to an alternative location on the network that is mapped up on login. So that Works fine.

I am going to try out hosting it on Internation Server.  ;D

General Board / Using a central local help library
« on: February 01, 2018, 08:47:14 pm »
Is there any way in EA 13.5 to point to a Central help file? Our users run in a secure environment With no internet Access and no permissions to install software. Software gets pushed out to Virtual machines and I do not want to replicate help system for Our user base.

General Board / Diagram Details hide when publishing

Is there an option or setting where I can show Diagram Details in Enterprise Architect but when I copy to clipboard or publish that I can hide the details?

General Board / Re: SQL to find mult connectors between to elements
« on: January 11, 2018, 01:32:28 am »
Thanks! I now got a start point to tweek With.

The scenario I am looking for is (using ArchiMate speak):
A is Assocaited With B
B is Serving A

So I am looking for Connectors in both directions and of same or different types. I'll post the result when I get to it.  :)

General Board / SQL to find mult connectors between to elements
« on: January 10, 2018, 11:04:40 pm »
Does anyone want to share a nifty SQL that finds more than one Connector between to elements? Using "Hide Connector" and similar functionality has been a complete disaster for us. There are some pairs of elements in our model that have many connectors btween them. Makes creating New diagrams labourous to hide unnecessary eones.

I know the tables involved but not really a SQL guru!

Bugs and Issues / HTML Publish automation and the need to be logged in
« on: January 05, 2018, 07:40:15 pm »
I have made a utility to run the HTML Publish automatically on a Schedule but the user needs to be logged into the machine for it to work. Does anyone know of a workaround to make this work? I read about a Windows Service wrapper but that only seems to wrap my utility and not the Enterprise Architect instance.

What I really want is to be able to Reference models from Confluence where we do documentation.
Will WebEA/Pro Cloud help here?

Thanksin advance,

Bugs and Issues / ArchiMate 3 and Aggregation/Composition nesting
« on: November 14, 2017, 06:04:46 pm »
I have noticed an issue With some elements in the ArchiMate 3 MDG when using Aggregation\Composition and Nesting. In some elements (Application Component) when putting one element inside the other the relationship should hide but it doesn't. Trying the same With elements in Stretagy or Motivation seems to work. The relationship hides when the elements are nested.

If anyone wants it, I have been working on a wrapper for EA API in C#.
includes functions like:
Code: [Select]
EA.Element GetElementByName(int packageID, string elementName, string stereoType)
EA.Connector FindorCreateConnector(string fromElementGUID, string toElementGUID, string connectorDirection, string connectorStereoType)
EA.Element FindOrCreateElement(Package rootPackage, string elementName, string stereoType)
Package FindOrCreatePackage(Package parent, String packageToFind, String packageType)
List<EAQueryResults.EAConnector.Row> GetConnectorsByGuid(String fromGuid)

General Board / Re: Pro Cloud/WebEA and log in (Single Sign On)
« on: September 21, 2017, 07:35:56 pm »
When importing users from Active Directory the EA Client understands it is a Active Directory credential and uses SSO. But coming through WebEA (which could be from anywhere) EA does not have a reference point so it defaults to the internal t_secuser credential.

So if you want to use Pro Cloud and WebEA you need to set your password inside in the EA Client.

But this is sort of logical because not everyone outside needs to have an Active Directory account.

General Board / Re: Update EA Repository Query
« on: September 21, 2017, 07:21:15 pm »
Yes. Tried that. But what I was trying to point out was directly manipulating the database bypasses a certain amount of logic. So you need to know what you are doing. Often one update results in lots of small updates in other places in the database. So this also must be replicated.
