Repository settings apply to all users of a single repository.
Attribute default values
When Model Expert analyzes a part of your model, some attributes will have values which are pre-filled by EA.
If a field or tagged value is in this list, and it’s value is the ‘default value’, then Model Expert will assume that the field/tagged value is not used, and it will not appear in the list of ‘attributes’ in a snapshot meta-model or reference model
If the field/tagged value is not in this list, and has a non-blank value, then Model Expert will add it to the list of attributes in a snapshot meta-model or reference model.
These are fields/tagged values which the Model Expert Analyzer will ignore.
This is because these fields/tagged values are given values by EA which tend to make snapshot and reference models unnecessarily complicated.
Connector violation colors
These settings define the colors of connector violations which appear on a ‘check diagram’. The defaults are:
This says that
where there are no errors, connectors will be colored green
where a connector has violation severities which add-up to between zero and 3, they will be colored yellow
where a connector has violation severities from 3 to 10, they will be colored red.
by implication, connectors with >10 violation severities, they will also be colored red
You can customize these values to change the ranges and colors which Model Expert uses when coloring connectors.
Element violation colors
These settings define the colors and ranges of colors for element severities, as seen on a ‘check’ diagram. The defaults are:
This says that
where the total violation severities for an element are <1 (that is, zero) , elements will be colored green
where an element has violation severities which add-up to between 1 and 5, they will be colored yellow
where an element has violation severities from 5 to 10, they will be colored red.
by implication, elements with >10 violation severities, they will also be colored red
You can customize these values to change the ranges and colors which Model Expert uses when coloring elements.
You can click on the buttons to change the colors which are used by Model Expert when creating snapshot meta-models and Reference Models.
This is the package where Model Expert will put working diagrams and packages.Â Specifically it will contain:
Snapshot meta-models: their package, classes and diagrams. These can get created from
the EA project browser
Temporary diagrams showing:
All the elements of a type,
All the connectors of a type
Violations when you check a single diagram
Make sure that ALL Model Expert users have access to this temporary package.
Technical note: these settings are saved in the t_xref table:

(XML of the repository settings)
At Model Expert v2.0, there is no way to export/import repository settings between repositories, other than manually copy this data between EA databases.
