RPE 1.3 and above is capable of generating configuration-aware document from CLM environment with Configuration enabled.
My colleagues Sunil and Dragos have put a video that explains document generation from RPE desktop client and RPE Web document builder.
Find documentation related to configuration-aware below.

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?
If you make a GET request to DM model OSLC / permanent URL (https://server:9443/dm/models/_Eea40KY8EeWtTLergOJe7g~OLDID__6018453__1) with Accept header as application/rdf+xml, you get OSLC representation of the resource. Looking at RDF/Description/type@resource attribute mentions whether the model is a use case or sequence diagram or etc. Continue reading “Understanding type of the model from DM”
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.

The team has put in a new and latest RPE overview video. Special thanks to Akash, Nithya and Heidi.

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”
