Error description

  • OSLC Link cannot be created from IBM Rational DOORS Thick Client
    to IBM Rational Team Concert 5.0 Work Item.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1. Log in to the Rational DOORS via Thick client i.e. Desktop
    Client and not via DOORS Web Access.
    
    2. Add a Rational Team Concert server as a friend and add an
    associated project. While ensuring that the 'Filed Against' is
    added as a Mandatory field to be filled for saving a Work Item.
    
    3. Open a requirements module, select an object, and try to
    create an OSLC link to Rational Team Concert.
    
    Result: The delegated user interface from Rational Team Concert
    only displays the Type, Summary, and Description fields.
    
    Enter values for the shown fields and click OK.
    
    Result: A message is displayed that indicates that the Filed
    Against field is missing a value. However, you cannot enter a
    value because the field is not shown. You are unable to create
    the OSLC link.
