Error description

  • DNG 6.0.3
    DOORS 9.6.1.7
    
    ReqIF export to DNG with empty attributes does not update the
    attribute value in DNG
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    - in DOORS 9, create a module with 2 requirements
    - create a text attribute and set values for the 2 requirements
    - export this module via ReqIF
    - Import the ReqIF file in DNG
    - You can see the 2 requirement, the attributes have values for
    both requirement.
    - in DOORS 9 delete the value of the attribute on the first
    requirement
    - export this module via ReqIF
    - Import the ReqIF file in DNG
    - The value of the attribute of the first requirement has not
    been deleted !!!
    
    Analyze
    
    I checked the ReqIF file :
    When the value of the attribute is set for a requirement, you
    can find in the ReqIF file a node like this :
    <ATTRIBUTE-VALUE-XHTML>
        <DEFINITION>
    
    <ATTRIBUTE-DEFINITION-XHTML-REF>_c8324f84-5a2a-406d-be6a-56f4e4f
    aeb1b</ATTRIBUTE-DEFINITION-XHTML-REF>
        </DEFINITION>
    
    <THE-VALUE><reqif-xhtml:div>value</reqif-xhtml:div></THE-VALUE>
    </ATTRIBUTE-VALUE-XHTML>
    
    If the attribute does not have a value for a requirement, you
    can't see that kind of node in the ReqIF file.
    
    Workaround:
    Manually edit the ReqIF file to add the missing node like that :
    <ATTRIBUTE-VALUE-XHTML>
        <DEFINITION>
    
    <ATTRIBUTE-DEFINITION-XHTML-REF>_c8324f84-5a2a-406d-be6a-56f4e4f
    aeb1b</ATTRIBUTE-DEFINITION-XHTML-REF>
        </DEFINITION>
        <THE-VALUE><reqif-xhtml:div></reqif-xhtml:div></THE-VALUE>
    </ATTRIBUTE-VALUE-XHTML>
    The value is updated in DNG.
