Error description

  • When DOORS Web Access is enabled, the internal URL referencing
    the requirement is formatted in a different way.
    
    As a result:
    The Rational Quality Manager Integration only works when the
    DOORS server is configured for the traditional DOORS Client.
    DOORS Web Access must be turned off.
    The Rational Team Concert integration with DOORS requires that
    the DOORS Web Access client and web interface be enabled.

    When DWA is installed in the user machine, the requirements
    url changes from the traditional url with 'doors' as
    protocol to new url with protocol as "http" or "https"(based
    on DWA setup). Since the url is used as a unique identifier
    in RQM to store the requirements, the change in URL cause
    requirements to be uploaded again and the requirements in
    RQM that are uploaded from DOORS, loses traceability.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A new field is added to the data file (XML) used to transfer
    data from DOORS to RQM while export to hold the URL of the
    requirement. This will be used only for traceability from
    RQM to DOORS. The existing field that acts as the identifier
    for RQM will always contain the traditional URL with
    protocol as "doors".
