I guess you would need to build a web application of your own.

With the Cloud(pro) you can actually write your own web application on top of EA just like webEA or Prolaborate.

Try a project integrity check.

If that doesn't help contact Sparx support.


Check the help here:
The easiest to start is to define you own stereotype in the model and then add the shapescript there.

Once you are satisfied with the result you can go a step further and create your own UML profile and deploy that with an MDG.

If you are looking for more example script see here:


I don't think you can change that.
The only alternative would be to write your own shapescript reproducing the same shape.
Seems like a rather simple shapescript would suffice.
Then you can attach that shapescript to a stereotype of you own.

Have you tried changing the stereotype and selecting the appropriate SysML stereotype?

If the correct stereotype is not in the list you might have to change the element type to whatever the base type needs to be.
You can test that easily by creating one from the toolbox and removing the stereotype.


Code: [Select]
Select t_objectconstraint.*
FROM t_objectconstraint
WHERE [Constraint] = 'SOURCETABLE'


IIRC there is some kind of dummy end object created to represent the connector, probably using t_xref.

You will probably have to replicate this somehow, using the backdoor operation Repository.Execute(SQL)

Thanks @Geert, I'll take a look.

And i take it that this has had a good success rate?

How do you load in the SQL queries? (Sorry, i am a bit of a newb)

Many thanks


Our users are very happy with the tool. We have already implemented more then 100 rules, and thanks to the SQL approach the performance is still acceptable.

We put the queries in xml files that are stored on a shared drive.
If you PM me I can provide you with some example sql queries and an installer to get you started


Weird. Where you able to select the model database from the dropdown?

I'm pretty sure that it is an SQL server security issue. If all else fails you can always contact Sparx support.


PS. Any reason why you are using an SQL server user instead of windows authentication to create the connection to the database?

We have developed our own add-in that dynamically loads SQL queries to validate a model.

I have not yet "officially" released it, but the code can be found here:


First it says that the credentials are wrong (they are not) and gives me a input window to write the passord again. When I write the password again I get the error message:
The user does not have database level permission to transfer data
The problem is in the database connection you are creating from EA. For some reason it doesn't have access, indicated by saying the credentials are wrong.
There is a "Test Connection" button on the data link dialog. Have you used that to test the connectivity?
The second password dialog is just EA indicating that it can't connect to the database. (the same happens if you don't have a network connection).

I get the same error message when trying to transfer from EA 14 to a new MS SQL 2016 server. I am moving from a file based repo to a DB based.
We really can't help if you don't provide more information.

If you connect to the database with SSMS using the same credentials as used through EA, can you do updates or inserts?

Seems like an SQL server permissions issue. If that doesn't help, you might want to post more detailed scenario and error description.


You can. In v14.1 there is an option to bring back the old features dialog.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Tabular Reports
« on: September 28, 2018, 04:21:33 pm »
If you are only looking for an export of this info I would suggest using an SQL search.
You can export the results of a search to CSV and then use it in excel.

If you are looking for a nicely formatted table in an RTF/docx/PDF document then you'll have to look at the RTF document generator templates.
With those templates you can also create SQL fragments to get tabular information like this into the document.
