Error description

  • If you have a module level attribute and use the Trace Wizard to
    display information about links, no information is displayed ab
    out the module level attrs. The DXL code behind is using probeAt
    tr_ which only applies to objects.

    analysis wizard cannot display module level attributes
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect is a documentation defect. The layout DXL code
    for analysis wizard was never supposed to show the module
    attributes. The label "Module and object attributes:" on
    step 3 of the analysis wizard has word "module" included
    because the list includes "Module Name" which should be
    treated as a special case because it's not actually an
    attribute. Although it would be straightforward, displaying
    module attributes in the layout DXL columns created by the
    analysis wizard won't make any sense because if it showed a
    Module attribute, then every linked object in a given module
    would display the same value in the traceability column and
    the users won't be able to visually distinguish between the
    linked objects. So, the code that generates the layout DXL
    code for traceability columns purposely leaves out the
    Module-level attributes.
    So, the docs should be updated to say this.
    The only fix to this defect would be NOT to include any
    module-level attributes (except "Module Name" which's a
    special case as told above) in the "Module and object
    attributes" list-view in the first place. And this is the
    fix that has been done.
