I want to be able to export my Matrix profiles for others to use - any idea how?

It's a bit hard to do, as it is bound to a particular model.  However, from memory if you have a hyperlink to a matrix profile (http://www.sparxsystems.com.au/EAUserGuide/index.html?hyperlinks.htm) in a package being exported to xmi, the matrix profile will also be copied.

Simon,

Could this be (easily) incorporated as a Reference Data category?
No, you can't have it!

No, it can't be incorporated into reference data because it is dependant on individual package ids.  Even if you did export it and import it into another model it wouldn't work.

We are actually using EA in an environment whereby multiple developers are working locally to their machine on the same model data, being managed within a subversion repository.

I tried saving hyperlinks in a drawing & transferring to others via xml.  Did not seem to work initially.  I'll keep trying.

Simon,
I suspected as much - but how about exporting the GUIDs (at worst) and the underlying query at best?

Currently the reference data does not reference model data (eg. Packages) in any way.

In theory this could be extended handle mapping between guids and ids of a package.  The underlying query isn't complete without the packages being specified in some manner.  As a result, in my opinion this information would fit better with the XMI.

I am using the V 15.2.1599 and the relationship matrix Profiles are not being saved when the model is copied to another diagram for backup.

The relationships are copied and are correct in the copy version.

It is just the profiles that is not copied across and that does not require any GUID or project specific data just the package names.

I have tried exporting in a CSV and that does not contain the profiles either.
