Further to OSLC + POXProfile post, RPE 2.1 with CLM 6.0.2 simplifies the data source configuration; especially while configuring dynamic data source for traceability reports.

RPE 2.1 introduces a new feature of importing a MS Word template to build a RPE template. Prototype the document in a Microsoft Word template, which a new user is mostly familiar with, and then import it in RPE Studio to create a RPE template out of it.

RPE 2.1 is a solid, feature rich release and for me it is extra special as it’s the last as the product’s architect. The project is carried on by my team, talented people that put a lot of heart in the work they do.
When I started this project 9 years ago I never expected it will grow into what RPE is today. I’m amazed, grateful and proud to see you rely on the tool I’ve created and learn of the creative ways in which you use RPE to solve a multitude of complex problems.
RPE has been an important part of my life but the time was right for a change so in March I’ve joined the IBM Internet of Things team. I hope this will be as interesting, fun and rewarding as building RPE was.
With RPE 2.1 web services, a template can be marked as a snippet when a template is tagged with snippet-XXX. XXX will act as a snippet group name when used from RPE Studio.
When RPE Studio is configured to use 2.1 web services, the Open Template dialog lists the snippets under it’s own group and the palette view again shows the snippets under the snippets group.

With RPE 2.1 Document Builder (Web Services), you can duplicate an existing report to create copy of it and then modify the report as needed like add or remove a template, output formats, etc. Find more details here. Note that the report configuration like data source to connection association, variable values and any other report parameters will not be copied.
For a data source connection, credentials and other parameters could be same for most of the connections apart from the URL. Hence, a report designer could now duplicate a connection from RPE 2.1. Check here for the exact steps.
Watch video on Duplicating Reports and Connections created by my colleague, Sunil.
RPE Studio 2.1 could now access assets from RPE 2.1 Document Builder (Web Services). The templates, snippets and stylesheets from 2.1 web services are available in Studio 2.1. The “Load From Library” in Open Template dialog lists templates and snippets, which could be view, modified and saved back to the web app.

Remote Service preferences
The remote services preference setting is similar to how remote services 1.x were configured. However, the service URL should be pointed to RPE 2.1 web service URL. Find complete documentation here. Continue reading “Studio Integrated with 2.1 Web application”
