Error description

  • Problem
    Analysis Wizard does not allow end-to-end traceability analysis
    when a module in the traceability chain has a default view set t
    hat shows only those objects with no links.
    
    To Reproduce
    1. Create 3 modules (Mod1, Mod2, Mod3) with some data.
    2. Create some traceability links from Mod3 to Mod2 to Mod1 maki
    ng sure that you have end-to-end traceability between the three
    modules.
    3. In Mod2, create a filtered view that shows only those objects
     that have no incoming or outgoing links.
    
    4. Save the view created in Mod2 and make it as default view for
     all users.
    
    5. Run the analysis Wizard from Mod3 and follow outgoing links t
    o try and show end-to-end traceability. In the 'Other informatio
    n' section of
    the Wizard, use the following settings:
    
      i. Enable Recursive analysis
    
      ii. Select the 'Display information only from selected modules
    ' option.
    
      iii. Select the 'Next...' button. This should display the 'Mod
    2' module.
    
      iv. Select the Mod2 module and press the 'Next...' button. PRO
    BLEM:  Mod1 is not displayed.
    
    
    Possible Workarounds
    The work-around is that the user needs to open Mod2 disable the
    module's filter, and leave the module open while doing the analy
    sis.
