APAR status

  • Closed as documentation error.

Error description

  • Back links and Link Discovery topic in Help states that links in
    DOORS, between RM and QM applications are based on Link
    Discovery. It also states:
    With link discovery, artifacts are related by a single link. The
    source artifact stores the link. The target tool must perform a
    query against the source tool to discover which source artifacts
    have a link relationship with a specific target artifact.
    
    Our observation however is:
    When link is created from DOORS to DNG, link is stored in DOORS
    and link direction is out-wards.
    When link is created from DOORS to RQM, link is stored in RQM
    and link direction is in-wards. So, link is not stored in source
    artifact.
