DOORS Next Generation

DOORS Next Generation (10)

So you have applied the latest iFix as that is the best praticse for your CLM/ELM environment just to find out your widgets have stopped working and you cannot find what could be the cause of the problem?   With the new iFixes starting from versions ELM 7.0.2 iFix004, ELM 7.0.1 iFix009, CLM 6.0.6.1 iFix018, and CLM 6.0.6 iFix022 the IBM has implemented new security measures to prevent Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF) vulnerabilities.This measure has changed the behavior of all OpenSocial gadgets and RSS feeds that fetch content from an external service or location which results in errors when trying to add widgets to your side-panel or dashboard that worked flawlessly before. Solution?   In order to fix this issue and get your widgets working again you need to add the location (URLs) of your extension hosting servers into jazz "allowlist" first.You can find the allowlist in JTS application in Admin menu.…
For completeness, the DNG public API's that are available are:  RDNG Reportable API - extracting read only information from RDNG generally for creating custom reports to be run from DNG or RPE. As well, it can be used in a lot of custom applications interacting with RDNG. Big advantage of this API is its simplicity and great performance if you need to work with big amounts of data. Sometimes it's called as RDNG Reportable REST API. OSLC RM V2 API - the open standard way to programmatically integrate with DOORS Next Generation, there is an elaborate workshop to get you started here OSLC Workshop article. These programs can be from any language that supports various HTTP methods of requests, e.g. Java, C# etc. Hence these are more flexible to run and can read and update DNG data, as part of a web server, or standalone, but have some limitations set by the current OSLC standard, for example…
Tracked-resource setsThe tracked-resource set (TRS) specification allows a server to expose set of resources in a way that allows clients to discover the exact set of resources in the set, to track all additions to and removals from the set, and to track state changes to all resources in the set. This specification is HTTP-based and follows RESTful principles. It is suitable for dealing with large sets containing a large number of resources, as well as highly active resource sets that undergo continual change. When project areas are enabled for configurations, for team members to see, use, create, or remove links across project areas, a Jazz administrator must install the Global Configuration Management (GCM) and Link Index Provider (LDX) applications. Use TRS v2.0 as a data source to create the linked lifecycle data index. When project areas are not enabled for configurations, to ensure that Lifecycle Query Engine (LQE) can access…
You can enhance the Requirements Management (RM) application by authoring extensions for it. The extensions can enhance productivity and are useful for analysis. You can add the extensions to your mini dashboard and remove them as needed. Extensions are authored by using a combination of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS files. The extensions access data within the RM application by using an RM API. This article aims to help you with enabling and uploading the widget extensions in Engineering Requirements Management DOORS Next. Widget Extensions
In Doors NG there are three types of templates - Project Area Template, Module Template, and Artifact Template. All of these templates can be managed on the project administration Templates page. Config. Management enabled =  Manage Component Properties --> Templates --> Component or Artifact Templates (in the left sidebar)Config. Management disabled= Manage Project Properties --> Templates --> Project or Artifact Templates (in the left sidebar)
The purpose of this article is to make an overview of options you have when you have a need for reuse of artifacts like requirements, specifications, contracts or event full lifecycle management projects in IBM Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management Platform (IBM Jazz). This article will be improved several times but the intention is not to describe everything since this is done in the consulting engagement.
This article describes the possibilities you have for the underlying database for Jazz Platform. Compared are advantages and disadvantages between the following databases: IBM DB2 Oracle DB MS SQL  Derby (only for non-productive trial use)  
This article aims to help the user with the process of deploying templates to the DOORS Next Generation. The official procedure is described by IBM here:https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/RRCCustomRRDGReportsWalkthrough In brief, you can deploy the template to DOORS NG easily steps:
Option 1:  Project Area or Component Template How to: In the current project go to Project or Component Properties > Templates Create New Click on data which you want to copy (if you click on Artifact then all artifact will be part of the template Create a new project area or component and use a template for creation (template must be downloaded and uploaded if you are porting to a new server) Advantages: Works also for porting to a new server Links between artifacts are kept project area properties are automatically saved Are links within the project area/component are kept
