New in RPE 2.1 – Drag and Drop Template Design

With RPE 2.1, you could drag and drop the web resource URL from the application your are working, like DNG, RQM, RTC, Design Manager (6.0.2 and above only), JRS, onto RPE Studio editor and get a RPE template for the web resource.

DNG Module – text requirement
RPE Studio – resource confirmation

You don’t just get a template here, but also a pre-configured document specification. RPE determines the Rest URL for the dropped web resource URL. You could then generate the document with very little or no configuration.

Quick tips

  • Use OSLC/Permanent URLs as much as possible over URL on the browser address bar
  • Use Work Item ID URL for single work item and work items welcome page URL to filter on various attributes for RTC
  • Configure variables, if any, in the import template wizard.
  • Use “Template -> Import Web Resource” menu instead of drag and drop in Studio.

Watch video on drag and drop template design.

Note: The support is limited to commonly used artifacts of the CLM products like text, module, resource, etc for DNG, test case, test plan, test script for RQM, etc. Find complete documentation here.
