How to create relationship arrows in ERD when the GUI is bugged?


Is there a way to create a foreign key (for existing entities) when the GUI is bugged ?
On my version, whatever arrow I choose, nothing is created :

I find strange we couldn’t create one directly in Entity -> Relations

Thanks for the help.

Version 7.2 - (Build 20100129)

PS: I am not allowed to update my version in my company so please don’t suggest that. Thanks

Hi jy95,

Thank you for your post. I am not sure about the bug you said but normally you can create a foreign key by drawing the relationship between two entities directly in the diagram editor. Did you try that?

Version 7.2 is pretty out of date (released about 10 years ago). There are many fixes and enhancements in this 10 years. The problem you encountered should be fixed already.

I tried but for whatever reason, VP doesn’t want to understand ^^
Is there a programmatical / manual way to “force” to create foreign key if the first way doesn’t work.

Hi jy95,

Currently, we only support creating FK through the diagram editor.

It would be great to have a workaround.
For example import / export same diagram but modify its xmi / xml
