Bugs and Issues / cannot create a file error msg
« on: August 03, 2009, 07:15:30 am »
Using EA build 844 (7.5.844) every time we open EA we get a popup message saying "cannot create a file when that file already exists". We also get the same message when we close EA.

This is the same for a few users, all that I have tested. Recently we moved an EA model to a SQL db - not sure if this coincided with the error but was around the same time that the error began occuring.

Any ideas?

The EA application still runs, it is possible to select OK and ignore the error - so we are getting used to it now lol

Bugs and Issues / Re: Activities in BPMN1.1 invisible in project bro
« on: August 03, 2009, 09:24:13 am »
Not sure how it could help but from my observation it DID help

It seems interlinked with the new performence of nesting lanes into pools in BPMN diagrams which has changed in one of the last few builds. Is there any documentation on what has changed? The EA help doesnt seem to be updated but the function is definitely different!

I take it this config setting is a new feature in one of the recent builds?

Duh... Thank you! Seems to be what I needed :)

Bugs and Issues / Activities in BPMN1.1 invisible in project browser
« on: July 30, 2009, 12:36:29 pm »
Using EA build 844 (7.5.844) we have found that in a BPMN 1.1 process diagram that when you add an activity into a lane the activity sometimes disappears from view in the project browser. If the lane that the activity is in has not other elements inside, there will be no '+' to indicate that the activity is in that lane even though there is an activity in the lane.

It is possible to verify that there IS in fact an activity in the lane by generating the html report which will show how it should be.

With the 'invisible' activity, using the function 'find in project browser' will move the scrollbar of the project browser to the place where the activity should be, but the activity remains invisible.

Any ideas on what is happening here? the resulting problem is that for rtf documents if the doc order is based on order in the project browser but you cannot see the item in the project browser there is no control over order in the documents.

Bugs and Issues / BPMN Pools and Lanes don't nest
« on: July 30, 2009, 12:39:37 pm »
Using EA build 844 (7.5.844) we have found that in a BPMN 1.1 process diagram that pools don'l allow lanes to nest using the diagram, you can only nest the lane using the project browser. If you do this, then the lane is nested correctly, but then every activity will be nested into the POOL but not the lane :(

Any thoughts on why this is? Is it a feature or a bug? It appears to have happened in one of the latest few releases as it used to work differently - what I would have said was the correct way - prior.

Any help would be appreciated

Bugs and Issues / Re: rtf Report defaults page layout to letter

oliver - good suggestion

how do i check this? I can confirm that each master document and model document has a custom (A4 format) template specified.

Bugs and Issues / rtf Report defaults page layout to letter
« on: June 16, 2009, 02:12:27 pm »
When I generate an rtf report using the model document to nest multiple document templates my documents always come out in letter page layout (I need A4 however). Is there a way to prevent this?

I am using 7.5.844 and have checked the page layout of each individual template and all are set to A4.

Bugs and Issues / Re: RTF Report SearchName filter error

Hi, I got it working, thank you all for your help :)

Here is the query as it stands now:
t_object.ea_guid AS CLASSGUID,
t_object.Object_Type AS CLASSTYPE,
t_Package.Name as Package_Name,
t_object.PData5 as Keyword,
FROM t_object, t_package
where t_object.package_id = t_package.package_id
and t_object.status = 'gap'
order by,

Hi there. Thx for the reply. Still not working altho helpful to see you can write the SQL searches :)

I have set up a new search based on this SQL:
select name, note, status, author from t_object where status = 'proposed' order by name

Saved the search and ran in search and confirm that my result are ok.

Next - add a new model document, no packages, just specified this saved search as the searchname with searchvalue as null. When I run the RTF all i get is a blank doc. My rft template is pulling out element fields including name, and I am expecting to get a whole list of rqmts elements. What is going wrong?

I'm thinking that the rft searchname tool is not working, or possibly I've got the wrong fields specified in the rtf. Help!

I have updated to build 834 and retried and the model document is still not working. I have added a searchfilter which I have proved works in the manage searches view. I have not added a package to the model document. When I run the report there are no results in the report.

The search I am using is a custom search on the 'status' property of an element. I have configured a status value of 'gap' which is associated to some of the requirements elements. I want to therefore report on the requirements with 'gap' status - this will be my gap report.

Can you please let me know if I am still doing something wrong?

The search filter seems to work and return a report with a set of results when I use say the 'simple' search as the searchname and searchvalue = 'gap' but this is not the result set I am after.

Cheers, Ainsley


Have you also added one or more packages to the model document? That blocks the search - you can only have one or the other.

Otherwise... any further details?

Yes I have packages and search filters - both. Will try with only the search and let you know how it goes. Cheers :)

Bugs and Issues / RTF Report SearchName filter error

I have set up a model document and added a pre-defined search into the SearchName field for the model document. (Using EA v7.1.832)

The pre-defined search has been tested on the same package and yeilds the correct result, but when used in the model document for the RTF generator the search is ignored and all data is returned. Why? :o

Bugs and Issues / HTML Report element hierarchy is flat list
« on: December 03, 2008, 01:28:21 pm »
When generating an HTML report for a package the hierarchy browser on the left of the resulting HTML report becomes flat. This seems to only happen with some packages whilst others maintain the folder structure correctly and allow you to expand and collapse.

Is there a reason why the HTML report is losing the hierarchy and displaying the elements in a flat list in the left hand side of the HTML report?
