I have a database with a large amount of models already designed  The last few days I created a new template which I want to apply to all the models in the database as once, but i can't figure out if and how that is posible. Im using Aris Business Architect 7.1

Hi Floris,

2 way I suggest:


1. Use the "Find..." feature:

Select the database or a ARIS group folder in ARIS database navigation tree and select "Find...". Search for models. Mark all results and make a right mouse click. Select "Format->Apply template".

2. Use a report script

Create a report script which finds all models in the ARIS databaseand sets and apply the template with:


model.setTemplate ( String guidTemplate, boolean bApplyTemplate );


Best regards,

Hi Misha,

templates can only used for models. But you can change the format of object occurences via script. This is possible.

Thanks Mr. Jens Heylmann

In Aris Designer it is possible to set template to an occurrence and I thought it was also possible by script.
