Issue with the getRifID DXL function in IBM Rational DOORS

Technote (troubleshooting)


The getRifID DXL function is used to gather the unique ID of a module that has been imported using the Requirements Interchange Format (RIF) functionality. Currently, getRifID DXL function is not working.


The getRifID DXL function is set up to return a value only if the imported RIF module is encrypted. Imported RIF modules are not encrypted, so getRifID is not able to return a value.
