How to test DOORS and RTC Integration when using the Requirements Change Management Feature

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How do you confirm that the integration between IBM Rational DOORs and IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) is working as expected when using the Requirements Change Management Feature?

Cause

The DOORs and RTC integration requires configuration in both products. In order to ensure that the integration was configured correctly, it is useful to have a simple test case to verify that the integration is working as expected.

Answer

In RTC, set the Work Item to the 'Assigned' workflow state and save it.


  1. Open the DOORS Module.

  2. After you log into Jazz, you should now see the Work Item. Select it and click OK.

  3. Double click on the Requirement and change or add additional text.

  4. Close the module. You will be prompted to Save the module, and an update history will be provided.

  5. In RTC, set the Work Item to 'In Review'.

  6. Open the DOORS module.

  7. Click Open in Read-only mode when prompted.

  8. Go to the Change Management menu option and select Review.

  9. You should now see the Work Item. Select it and click OK.
  10. The redline changes you made to the Requirement will be shown. Close the module.

  11. In RTC, change the Work Item to 'Approved'.

  12. Navigating to the Approvals tab.
  13. Click on the New: Approval drop-down and select Approval.
    This will add a new row for the Approval.
  14. On the new row, click on Add Approvers..., type in <username>, select your user, and select Add and Close.

  15. Under the State column, click on the drop-down (where it currently says Pending) on your row and select Approved.

  16. Save the Work Item.

  17. Open the DOORS module.

  18. Click Open in Read-only mode when prompted.
