Error description

  • Display mode options on the symbols in the diagrams change after
    encyclopedia is upgraded from SA v11.4.1.2 to SA v11.4.2.2
    
    The problem only happens when clicking Yes to reapply default
    declarations, as a workaround the users can say No on this
    prompt. The display mode options will not be changed.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • In newer versions of SA, the "default declaration" includes
    enabling SA-Focal Point integration. This, in turn, adds a new
    "Vendor" check-box to the list of displayable properties seen on
     the "Display Mode" dialog. The extra check-box confuses the
    logic of which check-boxes to enable when presenting the dialog.
    

Problem conclusion

  • An easy workaround exists. In the mean time, we will investigate
     a better long-term solution.
    

Temporary fix

  • Workaround: When an on old encyclopedia is being opened by a new
     version of SA, follow these steps:
    1. Say YES to "The encyclopedia schema is configured..."
    2. Say YES to "The default meta model is configured..."
    3. Say YES to "Would you like to reapply the default..."
     [STOP HERE]
    The current dialog being displayed should be "System Architect
    Property Configuration"
    4. Click on the "Advanced" button.
    5. Select "Focal Point" in the lower right "Property Sets" pane.
    6. Click on "Remove"
    7. Click on other "OK" buttons and allow the upgraded
    encyclopedia to open with correct Display Mode check-boxes.
