Hi All

What is the best way to do this and how.
I see ways to import elements  and so on, but not Glosary elements.


General Board / Numbering in different Templates
« on: March 01, 2013, 02:42:05 am »
We create documents based on the Master Template.

We add different Document packages and the Master Document calls all the other packages and all works perfect even with a "Table of Contents" refering all other packages.

The only issue I have now is trying to number across different Master Documents, if we can have a "Table of Contents" across Masters documents, why the numbering across is not working.
Would like to add a numbering across packages, but sometimes not all the packages have a reference to print.

Any hint?


General Board / Traceability between Classes - Tables - UI
« on: February 09, 2013, 04:24:33 am »

I have already mapped the traceability between Classes and Tables with no problem, by connecting -> link to element feature and it works great, the only problem I have is trying to display this in a document, not in the diagram but in the section of attributes and operation in the document.
Nice could be that I can show the link into what element of the table.
If anyone knows what to do here, highly appreciated to inform me.  

Second questions is how can we have traceability between Tables and UI elements. Graphically is the same way, but is not a nice way to display. Is there another way of doing this?

Thanks ins advace

This Image Manager has more than 500 images and need to delete arround 400 of those and I don't see how to to delete more than one from here. Is there any command or script taht I can use to do this.

Thanks in advance

General Board / Imporitng a new OOP language not listed
« on: November 27, 2012, 08:13:01 am »
Hi all,

I would like to import a new OOP (Object Oriented Programming) Language not listed in the Source Code Engineering like C, C# and all others. Also would like to generate code to another one also not listed, like Ruby or any other.

What would be the process. I see that I can add a new language and create new code template for this language.

My question is, how can import the code to create classes and so on, if when creating the new language there is no place to add the extension of the language.

Also do I have to use the Import Source Directory to do this, I see that I can change the extension but not the source type. How will EA know what templates to use or what extension of the file to look for.
Any help on this will be appreciated.


General Board / Audit View on Documentation
« on: October 17, 2012, 03:46:07 am »
Hi All

I have setup Audit View in our repositories, EA does a good work on all UML elements and Packages, but in creating and and deleting RTF template I do not see any Audit for this.
Maybe I am wrong; does some one investigated this side of EA.
Someone has deleted a set of RTF template used in our Master document.
Anyone knows how to track this.

General Board / Use Case Scenario to Structured Scenario
« on: May 22, 2012, 01:05:05 am »
Hi All

I inherited several old Use Cases where all the steps are in the "Description" tab of the Use Case Scenario (some have 60 steps), now with this new version would like to transfer all those steps to the "Structured Specification" tab.
I tried doing a copy and paste, and is a lot of work, copying step by step from one tab to the other.
Is there an easy way of doing this, like exporting to excel (this is easy) and importing into the Use Case and only to the Structured Scenario tab.
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.


General Board / Notification from Team Review
« on: February 14, 2012, 08:30:31 am »
Hi All

We started to use Team Review and would like to get an email notification when one of the Post gets apdated, read, approve, etc.
Is this posssible?
Do we need an Add-on for this?
I have not seeing how a user gets notify if he is in not in EA. Will be nice if he gets an email notification that the post got updated.
Have not seeing this either if he is in EA.

Can someone point to the right direction.

Thank you in advance,

General Board / Requirement Documentation by Phases
« on: February 10, 2012, 09:12:15 am »
Hi All

I am trying to output a simple RTF Requirement Document by different phases, I can see it when it shows at the Package Browser and filter by Phase, but would like to do the same at the document level.

Example: {Element.Phase}==3.0

Any help would be appreciated.


General Board / Activity diagram
« on: March 22, 2006, 03:27:23 pm »

This might sound stupid, but I have learned that there are never stupid questions. I have to create around 10 different Activity diagrams with a lot of activities in it.

So here are the questions:

1) When I drag an activitiy into the diagram, it comes up with a standard shape, which is too big of how I want them, then I have to make it smaller every time. It happens every time with each activity I keep adding. Now I am comfortable with the size it has, lets say I add a new activity. What I have to do is to select the new big and the old ones (the size I want) and then select them all, right click and select same heighth and width and I get the size I want for the new one.
Is there a way to pre-select the size the of the activity, so it comes up every time with a pre-select size.

2) Each Activity, has notes and different tabs like: Require, Constraint, Scenearios which I am adding a lot of stuff in here. My question is:
How can I see all this either in EA without going into each activity and double click on it ; or export it into a Word doc to see all of this.

3) Example :I will be addding  2 activities. To add a first and last name in a screen. This activity will be to enter first and last name when adding a member. But when adding a spouse, the last name will be reused and pre-populated with member last name but the first name will be blank.


I added a Scenario in First Name:
Input for member
Blank for spouse

I added a Scenario in Last Name:
Input for member
show member last name, let overwrite

How can I expressed all this in an activity diagram
and then export it to word.

I have done this in document as a Business Analyst,  but I want to use EA on this project and have EA document the developers.

Hope some one give me a hand on this and thanks in advance. Sorry for the long message.

Uml Process / Activity Diagram
« on: April 26, 2007, 07:05:44 am »
Hi guys

I have done a lot of Activity Diagrams in my life, but the process I used to do is to export the image to the Business Requirement Document (BRD) and then create a Table with 3 columns: Activity, User and System.
Each Activity column will represent each activity in the diagram, also they will have or not a description in the user column  and system column.

What I would like to do is to include the User and System description inside each activity, I don't want to add it as a Note in the General tab of the Activity Property . Also going to other tabs is not a Require Type, or Constraint Type or Scenario Type.
Maybe can be added as an Operation USER or SYSTEM
I don't see a way to do this, can someone help me on this.

My ultimate goal is that EA creates the BRD without creating the table and adding the description, just export it form EA.

Thanks in advance ???
