No, that doesn't exist. Would be a nice feature though.

If the SCC link doesn't work you can still do something comparable with the package control.
You can configure it and set the version control configuration to "none".
In this case you can still define a filename and save/load the package from that filename.

If you have users who are sufficiently disciplined than that could work as a form of version control as well.

In v14 they have hidden all the relevant function in the ribbon
Publish | Model Exchange | Package Control

General Board / Re: Stereotypes data

The stereotype definitions of MDG's are not stored in the model.
They are read at startup and then kept in memory.

Usage of these stereotypes can indeed be found in t_xref

I just tried it again to be sure and the import works just fine here.

I'm a bit puzzled as to what could be the cause of the problem here. ???

I'm using EA version 14.1.1427, but that particular piece of code was written in 2013, so it must  be compatible with earlier versions of EA (version 10?)

David,

Probably one of the used references that is not available on your PC.
If you go to the VBA development environment (Alt-F11) and choose Tools | References you should see something like this:

I think IBM RTC supports the SCC interface, which should make it compatible with EA.
See https://jazz.net/library/article/87667/

Are you sure the element you are referring to (the one with the infinity symbol, which is meant to represent three links of a chain) is a diagram element?
If you are seeing the link icon that usually a sign that it is a regular element that has been made composite.

You can see the actual type of the element if you select it in the diagram and press Alt-Enter.
That should open the element properties dialog.

To make an element "composite", right click on it on a diagram, and choose

New Child Diagram | Select Composite Diagram

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Is Action Node on diagram?

Not really, you would need to traverse the whole model and inspect each and every diagram.
That would take hours in even a modest sized model.

The only feasible way is to use an SQL query.

Yes, t_diagramObjects contains the diagram representations of objects.
If there is no record on t_diagramObject, for a certain Object_ID that means that object is not used on a diagram.

Use Repository.SQLQuery() to execute the appropriate query.

I see, the InternalTechnologies is new since v14
The files in the folder have extension .xml, but these are clearly some kind of binary format and not plain xml. (it's not simply a zipped xml file, I tried that)

Seems like these files represent the technologies that used to be hardcoded in EA.
I guess they are now loaded as any other MDG technology, except for the file format.

I'm all out of ideas on how to fix that. I hope Sparx support can help you..

You'll have to give is a bit more info.

Which database are you using?
What exactly did you do before this issue started
Have you tried Project Integrity Check?

SavePackageAsUMLProfile, SaveDiagramAsUMLProfile and GenerateMDGTechnology were added to the Repository class in EA 14 to help with building Profiles and Technologies via script.

Yes!
In fact I saw that and then promptly forgot about it :-[
