High Automation Level

The tool have API in order to create automation for:

  • Artifact creation and mapping
  • Attribute creation and mapping
  • Link Type creation
  • Project area & component creation
  • GCM creation
  • Creation of views, folders, streams and baselines

OLE Object Handling

  • Migration of OLE from attribute into primary text (merge) or as linked artifact (link to base artifact)
  • Ability to migrate pictures as embedded or standalone artifacts. Linking of embedded pictures to its artifacts (as base artifact link)

Notifications

Error handling prior and after the migration

Test Management

(Planned) Test on each object with proof that the artifact was migrated from DOORS to DNG properly

Technical Informations

  • Concurrent loading from DOORS to DNG
  • Usage of internal DB during Migration, which allows flexible linking after the migration of the data
  • Possibility to resume of the migration process in case of a disruption

 

Flexible for any customer use case

All migrations are different.  We have built this solution, because the traditional ways of migrating were not sufficient for our and our customer needs.

This video show first release of the solution.

Development of specific APIs

The tool is able to to custom migration due to the fact that we have created our own APIs.

In order that DNG traces all the changes in artifacts, which could be seen in the "Artifacts History" page. Softacus developed an extension that allows users to filter this history directly in a module without need of opening history separately in new window or tab.


User Interface

 

Image

As you can see on the left, UI of this extensions is containing filters. You can filter by:

  • Start Date - together with end date it specifies the date range of the changes that should be displayed
  • End Date - together with start date it specifies the date range of the changes that should be displayed
  • Users - you could choose from which user you want to show the changes
  • Changeset - indicates what type of change you want to see. Changeset filter contains the following options:
    • Insert
    • Update
    • Delete
    • Edit
    • Create
    • Import

 

Displaying the Changes

 

changeslist fh

fh collapsiblebuttons  

deletedartifact changes

As mentioned, the widget is diplaying the changes directly in its UI, so there is no need to open additional tab or window (or just navigate to other pages). 

After you click "Filter History" button, extension will fetch all the changes matching with your set of filters, and it will list them under each other as collapsible button for every artifact ID. Every collapsible button of artifact ID contains all the changes for specific artifact.

There are displayed all changes in following way:

  • Green - changes in the module
  • Red - changes in the artifact that was already deleted from the module
  • Black - artifact is still existing and contains changes

 If you click on "Changeset" in the list of changes, you will be navigated directly to the Artifact History page of DNG.

The RAAPA add-on provides any user without an administrator role the ability to request access to a specific project area. Ability to update the table for any administrator who has full access, which would be distinguished by script


 

User interface

 raapa image 1

 raapa image 2

Explanation and features

By continuous communication between server-side add-on (written in Node JS) and client-side add-on (a widget), it makes a system that can be used for ELM applications, such as QM, RM, CCM, and GC.

The server side of the script distinguishes admins, which categorize users as admins and non-admins.

When the admin is logged in, a table with project areas is being updated.

Non-admin has not got access to the selected project area and RAAPA offers him to request for it by pressing a 'Request Access' button. The button automatically sends an email to predefined administrators and also users with specific roles (optional).

Future possibilities

  • Data storage can be moved into a cloud service instead of the server-side script - this would not require an open port for communication
  • Ability to update the table for any administrator who has full access, which would be distinguished by script
  • The range of applications can be extended

Limitations

  • Admin needs to authorize himself on each application (at least open them) to gain access to all project areas
  • If the admin does not have access to all project areas, it affects other users by a limited number of project areas on the server
  • A server-side script needs to be running on a port

Report Generator is an extension developed by Softacus. The extension is able to start the generation of a document from a DOORS Next Generation mini dashboard what gives us possibilities to enhance any of the Rational Publishing Engine Templates and make the generating more user-friendly.


 

User Interface 

As you can see in the picture on the left, the widget is looking simple – containing only a dropdown selection of Baseline to be compared with current configuration (configuration in which user currently is) and “Generate Report” button to start generating.

report-generatorreport-generator

 

Explanation and features

The extension was developed especially for printing documents, including a comparison section of the same document (module) in two different configurations (stream to baseline, baseline to baseline), which corresponds to the appearance of the user interface.

Cooperation with RPE MPT and Future Possibilities

As mentioned, the purpose of this extension is to make generating documents more flexible and easier for all of the users. In cooperation with Rational Publishing Engine Multiple-Purpose Template it can provide the following possibilities:

  • select different DNG attributes to print for different artifact types based on the view
  • choose if attribute shall be printed with or without Attribute Name
  • choose the formatting of attribute Name (bold or not bold)
  • choose the formatting of attribute Value (bold or not bold)
  • printing attributes in the table
  • define the table properties (columns width, names of the attributes – can be different than in DNG)
  • filter artifacts

All of the mentioned possibilities (except the last one) are already implemented in Rational Publishing Engine Multiple-Purpose Template, but they must be defined via RPE MPT Command described here.

Comparison Section

The Widget has a checkbox selection in which you can select if you want to print the comparison section in the document. Currently, you can compare Stream with Baseline or Baseline with baseline and it will be printed at the end of the document under the heading which content can be adapted for you.

In the picture below, please see an example of compare section in the generated document:
