Export MetaAttribute & Value of a MetaAssociation between two Objects

I have two objects, one Org-Unit and the other Entity (DM) and I have an Association between the two that has an Attribute on the Association.  When I export the objects in MGR format the Association comes with them, but the value of the Attribute does not.  I have added the MetaAssociation to the "Standard for Export" _Operator and made the Parimeter "Deep" but dont understand why the Attribute value will not export.  Using Mega 2009 SP5 CP 9.

Re: Export MetaAttribute & Value of a MetaAssociation between two Objects

Hello MHenderson

 

As you may know, the MetaClass 'Entity (DM)' is part of the data modeling metamodel.

This part of the metamodel is managed at two levels:

  • Virtual level
  • Storage level (persistence)

If you meet this issue, it is likely that the current definition of the metamodel is not the one expected:

  • Verify that there is a MetaAssociation between Org-unit and Class (Storage level)
  • Verify that this MetaAssociation is configured as expected
  • Verify that the MetaAssociation MetAttributes are connected to both MetaAssociations (both Virtual level and Storage level)

Re: Export MetaAttribute & Value of a MetaAssociation between two Objects

Thanks for the links.  I did have the correct configuration, but did not have the MetaAttribute connected to the Physical MetaAssociation leg.  Another strange situation occurred while updating the Perimeters, I had to do a full Translate and Compile before testing.  The standard Repository Context Refresh did not work.
