Error description

  • The DOORS Discussions limitation of not being archived along
    with the
    DOORs Project/Module is not displayed prominently enough as a
    warning
    in the DOORS Documentation.
    
    AVP customer has been using Discussions extensively for many
    years
    with its suppliers but only realised recently of the limitation
    when
    transporting DOORS Archives. When looking to move the DOORS
    database
    with selected Projects from on-prem to on the Cloud archiving
    was being
    used to move the projects and it was too late to include the
    Discussions created within the Modules.
    
    An enterprise may decide to utilise the DOORS Discussions
    facility
    without being made aware that they cannot use Discussions in
    conjunction with Archiving or ReqIf.  The only place this is
    mentioned
    is buried deep in the IBM Knowledge center.
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSYQBZ_9.6.1/com.
    ibm.doors.requirements.doc/topics/c_aboutdiscussions.html
    
    AVL suggest this is buried too deeply in the IBM libraries to
    alert an
    enterprise early enough of the inability to archive Discussions
    along
    with an archived DOORS Project or Module.  The warning should be
    made
    much more prominent and included where documentation refers to
    the
    ability to archive projects/Modules.
