General Board / Charting and Tagged Values
« on: August 23, 2021, 09:50:48 pm »
Just want to make sure I'm not missing something.

I've been playing around with the charting capabilities - heat maps, pie charts etc..  -  but it seems that the reporting out of the box is limited to the core element attributes.  In other words using tags and their values is not supported unless you drop in to your own SQL queries?  Is that right?

A keyboard shortcut (Ctrl-shift-V like in Gmail) would be cool as well.



General Board / Event Registry
« on: May 13, 2020, 11:40:12 pm »
Hello, does anyone have any experience/advice regarding using Sparx EA as an event registry (attributes, versions, usage etc..) where the events are Kafka events/streams?


General Board / Re: v15.1 - Where is EA-Lite?
« on: April 17, 2020, 09:28:22 pm »
It's not on the website because we haven't released one a reader since 14.1.
This makes it REALLY tough for us. We're encouraging users to start with EA-Lite (they're shirt scared of breaking the enterprise model when they first come on board) and when they feel more comfortable and up to "getting their feet wet", they can transition to EA-Full (with no loss of generality or changes in thought).

The menus keep changing (especially between v14 & v15+) and so that's a false promise!  It's hard enough to get (potential) users to look at models - look at the Coronavirus examples, without "shooting ourselves in the foot" with changing menus - and to a lesser extent functionality - because what they're using is MANY versions behind!

Please, please, release a v15 EA-Lite (and very soon)!



Suggestions and Requests / Re: Allow Diagram Frames to be scaled
« on: March 05, 2020, 10:41:35 pm »

It would be very convenient a diagram frame  in a diagram could be scaled, e.g. to insert a diagram frame and a "thumbnail" on another diagram at a user selectable scale, e.g. 40%

Updated to clarify it is a diagram frame in a diagram

It may not be a high priority, but from a usability point of view this has irritated me for a long time.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Portals pain
« on: March 05, 2020, 07:20:50 am »

When you turn on the Portal pane, e.g. Start > Desktop > Design > Portal
its not immediately obvious how to make it go away again
* it doesnt toggle away
* it doesn't have the usual push pin or close (x) control
* the hamburger menu doesn't help
Turns out you have to RMB on the "Portal" title bar to find the context menu which lets you autohide it.

Suggestion: Have the Portal pane follow the UI conventions of other panes,

thus reducing the pain



I too wasted too much time trying to make it go away

Bugs and Issues / Re: Build 1525 causes OLE Waring for MSSQL
« on: January 23, 2020, 04:46:49 am »
So Peter,

- no problem with 15.0 build 1514
- there is a problem with 15.1 build 1525 (the release candidate)

the question is, is the problem still there with version 15.1 build 1526, the official release of 15.1?

As 15.1 is only in beta. sounds like this should be fed back to Sparx so adjustments can be made before the final release. 

"Licensed Users" denote the total number of users you can add to Prolaborate; Only the users who are added can access Prolaborate. They are neither floating nor named. As they are not named, you can easily remove and add users as needed.

1. We have 100 business users who want to participate in reviews, discussions, and work on all the features of Prolaborate. How many licenses should I buy?
You need to buy a Large Teams edition (100 users).

2. We have 250 business users who want to consume EA model information online but not more than 100 users will be actively using the various collaboration features of Prolaborate. How many licenses should I buy?
You can buy Large Teams edition (100 users).
This edition comes with the "Open Community Access" feature that lets any number of users get a view only access to the customized view of EA Repository and a personalized Dashboard.

Note: Prolaborate licenses are different from your Enterprise Architect licenses; there's no relation between them.

This is useful thank you.

However here's a variation of scenario 2.
"We have 250 business users who want to consume EA model information online ALL of whom will be actively using the various collaboration features of Prolaborate,  BUT we estimate not more than 100 users will be actively using the various collaboration features AT THE SAME TIME."

How many licenses should I buy?

Once I click delete, it's nice to know how many diagrams (if any) and how many links (if any) the element selected to be deleted has.


General Board / Re: Office MDG and SharePoint

Within a corporate network and with the right permissions it's possible to publish directly to SharePoint from the HTML generation panel.

A SharePoint site/URL resolves to a folder on a server, this means that you can map a drive to it if you own the site in question.  Once you have a drive mapped, you can specify the path in the "Output to" field in the HTML generation panel and Bob's your Uncle.    For example, I have drive Z: mapped to Sharepoint and I can output to various folders such as  Z:\EA Tools\Capability Map etc..
Hi Graham,

Does this still apply if the Sharepoint site is in the cloud?

Also, do you access the HTML from within Sharepoint?  We found that when we uploaded the HTML folder to the SharePoint site (we couldn't map it as yet), Sharepoint complained that EA was using Javascript and we couldn't see how to enable it.  On the local copy, everything was OK.


Hi Paolo - in response your questions

1)  Does this still apply if the Sharepoint site is in the cloud?
Our SharePoint is on premise, so I'm not sure.

2)  Do you access the HTML from within Sharepoint?
Yes.  Usually via a link from a SharePoint page/site.  Works as expected.  No issues with JavaScript.
