Questions from the AudienceClick on a question to see the answer.
What version of Enterprise Architect supports these Model Reviews?
Enterprise Architect 13.5 or later is required to use the Reviews tab and tools associated with the Reviews profile. There will be some backward compatibility, however, such that earlier versions of Enterprise Architect can still read models that contain Review elements. A separate MDG Technology download will be available for older versions to provide as a plug-in extension to support rendering of Review elements on diagrams.
What edition of Enterprise Architect is needed?
Review elements are supported in the Corporate and higher editions of Enterprise Architect. Also the EA Lite (read-only) edition allows users join and contribute to discussions, but they cannot create Review elements.
Is the Web Application free?
No. The WebEA interface is provided with the new Pro Cloud Server. It is a separately licensed, sever-based component for team-based deployments of Enterprise Architect.
What is the cost of the license per server?
This will be made known closer to official release.
Update: Pricing is now available from the Pro Cloud Server web page:
Does the Pro Cloud Server integrate with other products like TFS?
Add-ons will be made available for this purpose in the future. Also note: The Web API for the Pro Cloud server is based on OSLC, so this facilitates third-party extensions as well.
What is the expected release date?
We expect both Enterprise Architect 13.5 and the Pro Cloud Server to be released together during Q2, 2017.s
