    Surname and forename were not accessible via DXL when
    configured with RDS. Configure DOORS to use RDS. Ensure
    Forename and Surname are populated in Corporate LDAP/RDS
    users and use u.surname or u.forename to try fetching the
    value in DOORS DXL. Empty strings were returned for
    u.surname and u.forename
    

Problem conclusion

  • 1. Surname Attribute returned forename when Surname field
    was empty for a name. This is corrected. When surname field
    is empty, an empty string is returned
    2. There was no Attribute supplied by RDS to access
    Forename. API is supplied now to fulfill the issue
    
    These Attribute are incorporated to fit into DXL
    requirements. u.surname will return surname, if any, for a
    user and u.forename returns forename of a user.
    
    These Attributes are relevant only when configured to use
    the Rational Directory Server
