Model Template and Connection Bridges in ARIS Connect

Hi,

I have 2 questions in relation to ARIS Connect and formatting models.

1. Is it possible to specify the template used for a new model in ARIS Connect? I have specified the model template to be used for new models in ARIS Architect (ARIS > Options... > For new models > Representation). When a new model is created through ARIS Architect the correct template is used. However when a new model is created by a user through ARIS Connect the deault template is used.

2. In the same vein is it possible to specify the height of connection bridges in ARIS Connect? Again I have specified this in ARIS Architect (ARIS > Options... > For new models > Connections) and it works when using ARIS Architect but not when using ARIS Connect.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello Seb,

re 1. Since release 9.8.4 the default layout template can be set by its GUID in the Connect server's defaultServerSettings.cfg , e.g.

abs.connect.template.classicPalette.default=c4bbdb20-f1d2-11e5-45d9-5cf9dd733053

or with arisadmin tool command:

set abs.connect.template.classicPalette.default c4bbdb20-f1d2-11e5-45d9-5cf9dd733053

For reference see Aris Release Notes.

re 2. AFAIK there is no user setting in Connect clients.

We have set connection bridges, grid etc. with Architect and offer a read-only EPC model as a template to copy by Connect Designer users (copy/paste models can be done in the repository view explorer). This gives also access to re-using common model patterns not available in Connect Designer. When a model has these display options already set they are effective for Connect Designer users as well.
