Fine Tune Your Modeling Language

Lock down your model with group based perspectives

Tailor your modeling language to exact requirements

Provide your team with the exact tools and technologies they need. Version 15.1 allows you to restrict any existing technology set to the few diagrams, elements and connectors required by your team's modeling efforts. As they are model based they can be shared effortlessly with the team members, accessed from the Perspectives menu item, Model Portal, or assigned to a specific security group.

Start with existing rules

Restrict and control the rules that allow for creating connectors between specific elements. Start with the existing metamodel rules and turn the desired connectors on and off for specific element types as required.

Quickly swap between rule sets

Access and activate personal perspectives from the portals window to quickly swap technology rules and sets.

Share with your team

Share your perspectives between multiple models and team members using the provided Import and Export functions.

Unleash Your Team

Model Baselines can now be configured to use a Reusable Asset Server (RAS), allowing multiple people to work on the same base model at the same time while being disconnected from each other.

This feature brings the power of a RAS to Baselines. While checking in, all model dependencies are also checked, baselined diagrams can be previewed and formal reviews can be conducted. Powerful Baseline features are also available, like the Visual Diagram Differencing, and the ability to drill down to the attribute level showing what has changed between baseline versions and the current diagram.

Model Based Business Vocabulary

Define your business vocabulary in more detail using the new Project Glossary, a model based approach for glossary definition. Layout your grouping of terms using packages of Elements with each element defining a new term. The traditional Project Glossary window will automatically show all model based glossary terms in its listings. These Glossary Categories can be nested or placed where required in your model.

  • New GlossaryCategory package allows defining a grouping of terms
  • New GlossaryEntry element for defining a description to associate with a term
  • Glossary Categories can be nested or placed anywhere that is required in your model
  • The Category path and its name and description forms the terms definition

Any glossary terms in your Element-notes show the Glossary highlighting and the mouse-over tooltips show the terms description.

Invite the World into Your Model

Tightly integrated information model, shared notes and properties

Externally referenced items now have their Properties and Notes displayed in additional pages of standard docked windows, providing a clean External Data window clearly listing just the external or linked items. The updates also include external Discussions displayed in the Collaborate window.

Build Your Own Interface to Your System

The new feature for customizing your own Integrations to other applications is now available, allowing you to add support for new services to the External Data Integration by fully integrating another application with built-in functionality. The sessions are now managed automatically - simplifying the Pro Cloud Server forwarding.

Custom Integration Services, once configured, can be called from scripting or add-ins and now support arbitrary requests and responses.

Take Full Control of New Diagram Layers

Hide, show and filter diagram content on demand with the new Diagram Layers
Enterprise Architect 15: Diagram Layers

Provide new clarity and insights to your model by assigning diagram elements to different layers on a per diagram basis using Enterprise Architect's diagram layers.

Each layer can have its own easily identifiable name and can be created and selected from the Layers tab of the Diagram Filters docked window.

Layer visibility can be turned on or off by the check box in the layer list, which is useful for hiding parts of the diagram, like diagram headings and other decorative elements or for using it to break a large diagram down into small consumable parts. Connectors are also turned on and off when the layers containing both element ends are visible.

Filtering to a selected layer is also possible which highlights different segments of the diagram at the click of a button.

Freeze Visible Relationships at a Point in Time

Diagrams now have the option to freeze the visible connectors on a diagram.

This creates cleaner "finalized" diagrams. When the same elements are used on different diagrams and a connector is drawn between them, the new connector does not show on your "Frozen Diagram".
