Modified Date Changed to XMI Import Date
« on: January 26, 2023, 01:04:33 am »
When using Subversion or the Asset to Import model fragments the Modified Date remains as it was in the export repository.
However, using the pure file XMI import or via a controlled package (not SVN) the modified Date of packages remain but the Modified Data of elements are changed to the import time/date.
This is a bug from my perspective because the Modified should not be changed at all.
Best regards,

Isn't there a setting somewhere that controls that behavior?

Preferences | XML Specifications | Controlled Packages | Update Last Save Time

Not sure what exactly this setting does, but it seems related to the problem you mentioned.

Hi Geert,
no this does not work.
I think it is a kind of bug because I do not see any sence in updating the "Modified Date" of Elements but not of Packages. Either both or non.
I would very much appriciate to have no update as it is for SVN/Baseline/Asset xmi imports.


Best regards,
