Elements renamed to: <name> + "_imported"

Postby karstenk » Mon Jul 22, 2013 4:05 am

Hello,

we have imported projects and modules from local *.mdzip files to the TeamWorkserver.
Some packages and elements within the project are renamed to "<name> + '_imported'".

Why do some elements have been renamed?
What is the consequence of the renaming?

Kind Regards
Karsten

Hello,

Probably some elements were read only when doing another project import. Please lock all elements when trying to import
another MagicDraw project.

Consequence of renaming may be different. In some cases when element name is very important (for example
stereotype extension property) having such name may break existing functionality. We recommend to review
such names and rename them to "normal" names.

Best regards

Hello Donatas,

thank you for your reply. I have reviewed and renamed the elements back to the "normal" name.
For furhter imports we will try to lock all elements before.

Best regards

Hello,

We've experienced the same thing when importing a project (not several) to TeamWork cloud. As far as I can tell, this happens when there are two elements with the same name (packages, diagrams, classes, operations, properties etc) anywhere within the same project. Although it doesn't affect all elements with the same name.

What makes me a little nervous is that some native stuff has changed, for example the base_Class property of all stereotypes have changed to base_Class_imported. For our project it seems to have changed some 200 elements. It could be done manually, but it's a tedious task that I rather avoid.

Is this planned to be fixed or is manual update the only way?

We're using 18.5 SP2 by the way.

Best regards
