General Problem with BRIDGE Operating

If you have got BRIDGE operating problems like e.g. with creating users or groups, proxy management, uploading the firmware, etc. continue reading to find a list of information we need to work on your problem.
If you have got service related problems, refer to xUML Service Problem further below.

Double click the text block below to copy&paste the information template to your support request:

BRIDGE Installer Version:
Operating System:
Problem Description:
Attached File(s): console logs, start logs
  • the version number of the BRIDGE installer

Open the BRIDGE administration console, go to the BRIDGE node and copy&paste the text displayed on the Runtime tab (see also Managing a Bridge Node Instance).

  • the operating system the BRIDGE is running on

  • the log files listed below of the day, the error occurred
For each day, the BRIDGE creates a new log file. Each part of the BRIDGE writes his own log file, so you have to collect the files named <error date>.log from the following directories:
  • <bridge data directory>\servlets\logs\admin
  • <bridge data directory>\servlets\logs\bridge
  • <bridge data directory>\servlets\logs\console
  • <bridge data directory>\servlets\logs\domain
  • <bridge data directory>\servlets\logs\proxy

If you can reproduce the problem, then

  1. Activate log level Debug.
    For information on how to set the log level of a service, refer to Bridge Log Level  .
  2. Reproduce the problem.
  3. Reset the log level to Info.

Collect the log files after you have done this.

  • If the BRIDGE does not start at all, ...
... send the log files from <bridge data directory>/servlets/logs/start*.log

xUML Service Problem

If you have got problems with one or more xUML services, find below a list of information we need to work on your request.

Double click the text block below to copy&paste the information template to your support request:

xUML Runtime Version:
Operating System:
Problem Description (Step-By-Step):
Attached File(s): bridgeserver log, Builder project ZIP, start.log, dump information
  • the version  number of the xUML Runtime

If you do not know your Runtime version number, open the BRIDGE administration console, go to the Bridge node and look at the Runtime tab (see also Managing a Bridge Node Instance).

  • the operating system the BRIDGE is running on

  • the bridgeserver log file of the day the error occurred

For each day, the BRIDGE creates a new log file in the following directory: <bridge data directory>\bridge_<name of the service>\logs\bridgeserver_<date>.log

You can collect the log file from this location or download it directly from the Bridge (see Logging of xUML Services).

  • If your problem touches specific functionality, please prepare a minimal project that reproduces the problem and attach it to your support request.

We need: the XML model file, the compiled repository, test case(s)

Providing us with a model that requires additional backends slows down the work significantly! 

If you cannot reduce your project, send the complete BRIDGE project including model, compiled repository and test cases.

  • Provide us with a detailed, step-by-step description of how to reproduce the problem.
Add information on the problem, e.g. if it occurs always or sometimes only.

Specific Problems

If you have a specific problem, we may need additional information:

  • If an xUML service does not start, we need the start log of the service.

The BRIDGE logs startup information to a file in the following directory: <bridge data directory>\bridge_<name of the service>\logs\start.log

You can collect the log file from this location or download it directly from the Bridge (see Logging of xUML Services).

  • If an xUML service crashes ( sign in the BRIDGE), we need the start log (see above) and the BRIDGE project including model, compiled repository and test cases.
    If you can not reproduce the error ...
If the Java adapter is used in the service, send file <bridge data directory>\bridge_<name of the service>\hs_err_pid<process_number>.log.

On Windows, enable full user-mode dumps in Windows Error Reporting and install the symbol xUML Runtime packages for the dump file to be created next time the service crashes. You can request the symbol packages from our support.

On Unix, enable core dumps. You have got two possibilities to do this:

  • Log in as Bridge user and manually start the xUML service using the command:

    <bridge data directory>/bridge_<name of the service>/bin/start.sh <bridge prog directory>
  • Enable core dumps on the BRIDGE by editing file <bridge prog directory>/bin/e2e_console.sh.
    Find the line

    echo ulimit -S -c 0 >> $TOMCAT_SCRIPT

    add a #-sign in front of the line (to comment this line out) it and restart the BRIDGE.

Compile Problems With the BUILDER

If you have got problems with compiling a model with the BUILDER, find below a list of information we need to work on your request.

Double click the text block below to copy&paste the information template to your support request:

BUILDER Version:
MagicDraw Version:
Operating System:
Problem Description:
Attached File(s): md.log or magicdraw.log, Builder project ZIP
  • the BUILDER version

The version numbers can easily be copied to the clipboard by going to the Builder > About menu.

There you can copy the whole version information by clicking Copy to Clipboard.

  • If exceptions occurred, send the MagicDraw log file too.
MagicDraw VersionLog File
16.9 or 17.0 <user home>\.magicdraw\<version number>\md.log
18.0 <user home>\AppData\Local\.magicdraw\<version number>\magicdraw.log
  • If possible send the whole project or all involved UML files and all required resources.
Don't forget the XMI files in the import-directory.
  • If it is not possible to send the sources, send us the bxmi.wi file.

To find this file:

  1. Go into the .$work directory in your Bridge project.

  2. Open the .xmi.id file and search for the UML file causing the issues. Copy the content of the id attribute (e.g. 950939989).

  3. In .$work, open the directory having the same name as the id attribute found in the previous step.

  4. Look for file <id attribute>.bxmi.wi.

  5. Zip this file and send it to our support.
