User interface 

spj_user_interference.png

Description

This extension splits a artifacts in DOORS NG Module into several smaller artifacts. This extension also joins several selected artifacts together.

Problem to solve

This extension is mainly used when a user needs to quickly join or split artifacts in few clicks. This is often after the import of the data from Word into the DNG Module

Join Artifacts

The join function is often needed after import of artifacts into DNG from a Word or text document. The artifacts (i.e. Information) would often be imported as several artifacts and often user would like to join several artifacts into one single artifact

Split Artifacts

When your text contains 2 or more requirements, you would like to split them in order to assign specific attributes and link to each of these requirements. This extension helps you to divide several sentences which are together in one artifact, into several single artifacts with single sentences.

Limitations

Currently, the join function works in a way where it is important to notice which artifacts you select and in which order.

User guide

Split Artifacts:

  1. Open Module
  2. Mark a single artifact, which shall be to be divided into several artifacts. This artifact should have several paragraphs
  3. Select delimiter  
    1. Paragraph - this means after every "Enter" the artifact will be split
    2. Bullet list - this means after every "Bullet point <li>" the artifact will be split
    3. Numbered List - this means after every "Numbered line <li>" the artifact will be split
  4. Click Split Button

Result: Artifact is divided into several smaller artifacts of the same type.

Join Artifacts:

  1. Open Module
  2. Mark several artifacts, which shall be to be joined into a single artifact. It is important to notice the sequence of your clicks.. The artifact will be joined in the sequence of your clicks. If you want to keep the current sequence, then click in the vertical sequence.
  3. Click Join Button

Result: Artifacts are joined into single artifact. The first clicked artifact is enhanced, and the other artifacts are deleted. Sequence is according to user clicks.

Render preview:

Display text preview, so user know how this artifact will look like after the action

Future Features

Artifacts shall be joined in the same sequence as they are in the module even if the creation modification date is not in sequence AND even if user did not click the items in the proper order

After merge the sequence of artifacts must be the same as before merge.

Explanation and features

  • You can specify rules that take into account the following parameters: Types of linked artifacts, Link type, Artifact placement. Artifacts in DNG can be in multiple modules at the same time or in folders (basic form).
  • The information about the linking rules is taken from a specifically configured artifact, making them easy to change for a specific project. It allows you to create many rules in a short time.
  • You can select artifacts through the DNG interface or through the widget dialog boxes as you like.
  • The system will prompt you with messages and help you even if you are wrong.

Restrictions

  • The creation of a link is supported only between two artifacts at a time

How to use this extension

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

This extension allows users to compare the current module with modules from other configurations. The script will display changes of sections, attributes, or changed links. Upon generating, you can also click on an artifact which will take you to the artifact in your current configuration.


User interface

Description

This extension is intended for very quick comparison of your module against another configuration, usually stream against previous version (baseline).

Problem to solve

This extension allows users to compare the current module with the same module in another other configurations. Default configuration is the last baseline of the current stream. The script will quickly display which artifacts have changed. Blue color means changed, yellow means new artifact and grey with red strike through means deleted artifact.

Features

Show only changes

Per default, the extension show only the changed artifacts, including their Heading parents and siblings. This was done in order to show changes also for very big modules with very few changes. If you want to show the whole module explorer tree, then click on Expand button

Expand Button 

Expand Button (+) allows you to expand the entire module with all changes. Due the very big sizes of sime modules the sctions with no changes are shown but collapsed. This allows user to expand it manually, but there is no need to do that due to no change in the chapter.

Collapse Button

Collapse Button (-) allows you to shown only the parts of the module with changes. You will se also unchanged Parent Heading in order to be able to identify the sections where the changes has been done

Jump to Artifact

The user has the ability to click on any artifact in the CMC Widget , and this will show and highlight the relevant section in the module.

Full Compare

This Button allows you to open DNG native comparison of the configurations. The adavantage is that you can do it with 1 click instead of 8-10 clicks which would be required to get to this comparison. Full compare screen will also allow you to see changed links. CMC widget does copare only textual changes due to the fact that link changes on artifacts do not change the "Modified On" attribute.

Rich Text Direct Compare

The changed Primary text can be compared directly in the widget without initialting "Full Compare". If there afre no changes shown, this means that some other attribute than "Primary Text" was changed in the artifact.

Explanation and features

Restrictions

  • The script cannot be executed outside the module
  • The links in the module are not color coded in the Extension and are compared only "Full Compare" view
  • The script does not work in changeset (yet)

How to use this extension

  1. Open Module in Doors NG Component
  2. Upon opening, a dropdown will append where you can choose which configuration to compare
  3. After clicking the button, the script will then look for all changes and will print them out.

How Comparison Works

Use Cases:

1) User is in a  stream (local or gc) - default comparison is with the last baseline
1) User is in a  baseline (local or gc) - default comparison is with the initial stream
