OSLC API and POX Profile simplifies CLM traceability

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.

Use OSLC / Permanent link for configuring the data source URL without having to modify the URL manually or through JavaScript. This simplifies the data source configuration to a great extent as the Permanent / OSLC links are available to the user from the product UI.

Watch video, created by Dragos, on requirement (DNG) to use case design (DM) traceability document generation using Permanent / OSLC links from DNG and DM without having to go through building Rest URL. Continue reading “OSLC API and POX Profile simplifies CLM traceability”

Quickly finding a query in the data source schema

When designing a template you often need to explore a query’s context and all its available attributes. You might need that in order to add another attribute to the output or to work with sibling queries.

Prior to RPE 2.0 your only option is to manually expand one node of the schema at a time until you reached your query. With RPE 2.0.1 you have a far simpler option: right click on the element holding your query and select “Go to schema” from the “Search” sub menu.

gotoschema

RPE will focus the appropriate data source schema in the Schema View and ensure the query is expanded and visible in the schema tree.

Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management 4.0.1 Reporting Workshop

This is a workshop from 2013 but it’s still correct and provides valuable information for how CLM REST APIs and especially the data linking works. The exercises are well structured and show you the actions sequence used to build most CLM templates.

Traceability with DOORS 9 and RQM

Continuing the series of articles on the topic of creating traceability documents I have arrived at an interesting use case:  traceability from DOORS 9 and RQM.

In this article I will describe how to create a document with requirements from DOORS 9 and their associated test cases from RQM.

Embed attachments as OLEs in the RPE Word output

This is a guest post by my colleague Subramanya Pilar from the RPE FVT team.

Hyperlinks are a simple and convenient way to attach additional data to a document. There are however scenarios where embedding the content as OLE objects is more useful:

  • the document is self contained, you can transfer the documents with embedded objects to other computers or mail them without breaking any link.
  • you can edit the embedded objects without changing the content of the source.
  • embedded objects can be edited without having to work in a separate window.

Rational Publishing Engine supports creating such documents. The attachment can be of any format supported by Microsoft Word for embedding .xls, .pdf, .doc, .docx are examples of such documents.
