Hello everyone ,

I have around 2000 moder (EPC ,FAD,VACD...) i want to add header "Fragment" to all the models ,there is anyway to add it automatically without open each model separately?! 


The main idea from doing this is to show the header in ARIS Connect for the business user .

Hi Mohannad Haddad,

as a -- at least IMHO -- wise design decision ARIS stores all models in an rDBMS. This enables you (please, make a database backup and check the backup first) to enrich existing models on rDBMS level.

This approach is far from being elegant. Furthermore you have to know the underlying database schemas in very detail. As a result before doing this please double confirm with your Software AG contact.

Best regards

Hello Mohannad Haddad,

I don't think anyone from Software AG Support will endorse or support you in fiddling at rDBMS level. I would recommend writing a script (macro or report), which opens each model, inserts some horizontal space at the top, adds your header and saves the whole lot.

Nevertheless: Backups and Testing are mandatory for any piece of code you write before you let it go at productive data. That's common sense obviously, not just for ARIS.

Hello Mohannad,

We already did it by script for a customer. The script created was OK and worked fine.

If you need more information and an evaluation of charges and price for this script, please, contact us at
