Please note only Admin users will see the  User Management button. Other Users will only see ‘Open Repository’ button. Read about User Management in the following section “User Management in EA SaaS for Admin”. Following this Admin must create Prolaborate login credential for modelers/collaborators.

3. Click on “Open Repository” button, to open Sparx EA application.

4. For Modelers to access model conveniently, we have pinned The Enterprise Model (Custom Name can be set for Model) on the Sparx EA application Start Page. For e.g. In the above image ‘DemoModel’ is one such model pinned for easy access.

5. Since the model handed over does do not have content, we advise Admin to perform below steps. This will allow users to access model content.

a. Admins can copy their enterprise EA model data to pinned models using project transfer.

b. Admin will receive credentials (Prolaborate login credentials & EA Model credential together) in a separate email. Admin can create users & user groups in the EA model. For more details on the creation of Users & User Groups refer Security Users Guide. For teams using SAML SSO, please skip the creation of users, refer here for more details.

6. Every time users open EA Repository, a message for clipboard sync popup will appear on the screen. Users must click on the ‘Allow’ button. This will enable the Modelers/Admins exchange files/information between local and cloud machines. Read how to exchange information in the below section How to upload & download files in EA Saas.
