Error description

  • DOORS ReqIF: Importing ReqIF files into DOORS or DNG doesn't
    retain DXL Attribute values.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    ==============
    1? Use any version of DOORS after 9.5.1.0 (say latest 9.5.2)
    
    2? Have a Module which has a couple of DXL Attributes in it.
    As expected, Objects would have associated values for the DXL
    Attributes.
    
    3? Export such a Module to ReqIF, you can use 'no locks' while
    exporting.
    
    4? Import the ReqIF file into either a DOORS Database OR into
    DNG. You would observe that though the DXL Attributes are listed
    in the Module, none of the values for these Attributes are
    retained. i.e values for these DXL Attributes are empty for all
    the Objects.
    
    NOTE: This behavior is observed in DOORS version 9.5.1.2 ?
    latest 9.5.2. However, this issue is not observed in DOORS
    9.5.1.0

    Client side fix
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added a special case for DXL attributes to revert to the
    previous behaviour (exporting the current calculated value of
    the DXL attribute) rather than treating it as empty and not
    exporting it at all.
    

Temporary fix
