While building a cross product template from DNG to Design manager, the derived by attribute links to model diagram from Design Manager. How do you know whether it is a use case diagram or sequence diagram or something else?
With RPE 2.1, a number of new out of the box snippets and templates are shipped for various resources like DNG modules, QM test plan, test cases, RTC work items, Design Manager models, etc. This would allow quick start on document generation without worrying about finding the schema, building the initial template.
Check out RPE_HOME\templates and RPE_HOME\snippets directory for snippets and templates for products like DNG, RQM, RTC, DM, DOORS, etc.
There might be a scenario where you want to share a variable value across templates within a document specification. This is not supported directly using RPE template variable. However this could be achieved using Java system variable.
Note: Once the Java system variable is set, the variable value is available during future document generation until RPE Launcher / Studio is restarted. Hence, make sure to reset such variable value at the beginning of the template to avoid unnecessary results.
During concurrent document generation, if same variable name is used, it could result in inconsistent value. Hence, create a very unique variable name for using across document specifications. You could log (using _sessionLogger) the variable value before using them for printing. Continue reading “Share variable across templates”
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 template is generated on the fly and available for modification and document generation for the JRS report. The document specification is configured with Rest URL of the selected JRS report along with credentials for accessing the data source, allowing to single click document generation.
Watch short video on generating document using JRS report URL in RPE Studio.
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.
