EA User Security locks

Prior to update the model, eaUtils looks for any lock that would prevent changes to be committed.

When the EA user security is enabled on the project, eaUtils checks the locking status set against the element or package to be modified.

The screenshot below illustrates all possible types of security locks that can be set in an Enterprise Architect project.

  • The user can run eaUtils to make changes on the following models:
    • Accueil and Use Case Model views don't have any lock set.
    • gfi view is locked to the current user.
    • Data Model - MySQL view is locked to a group that includes the current user.
  • The user is not able to use eaUtils on the following models due to existing locks:
    • Domain Model and "user toto" Data Model - MySQL are locked by another user
    • Class Model has a full lock so no one can modify it.eautils control on EA user security locks


When running an eaUtils update feature on a package, element or diagram, the following popup will be displayed if a security lock prevents the user's session from making any change:
