CLM 6.0

More details here, and here:

For document generation, CLM 6.0 ships with RRDG 1.3 iFix 003 which is significant as it allows to use all the latest in template design.


Using the JRS Query Builder for selecting the document data

I’m building an internal report that uses JRS to access data aggregated from multiple CLM projects and tools and I’m thrilled by how simple and effective the process compared to accessing the individual point products’ Reportable REST APIs. All the data in one place and you have a visual query builder to select, filter and sort the data that you need. The process is server side so RPE receives only the data it needs in the exact order it needs it.

All it’s left for you to do is to use the data and render it nicely in the document format of your choice. I am documenting the process and I will post my results here.

CLM Global Configuration – Overview of concepts and terminology

Support for configurations is a major capability in CLM 6.0 and the video below provides a very good introduction to the domain. RPE supports performing configuration aware document generation since RPE 1.3 so it can work with configuration enabled 6.0 instances to produce documents for global or local configurations.

The video builds on the concept of a lifecycle project in IBM’s solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) by introducing concepts and terminology introduced in version 6.0 of the IBM Jazz applications. These concepts include baselines, steams, configurations, global configurations, components and other. These capabilities are useful when reusing requirements or components in product variants, in product line engineering, and in everyday project development.
