Error description

  • Attempting to export a module to RIF which is configured for use
    with the change integration will result in the message 'Could
    not export module 'moduleName' - formal module is not open for
    edit'
    
    This is because the integration creates a trigger which prevents
    the module from being opened invisibly or in edit mode. The RIF
    export requires that the module be opened invisibly (if not also
    for edit).
    
    So there is a effectively a clash in the design of each
    component here, but perhaps not one that couldn't be overcome,
    at least in some circumstances e.g. when exporting to RIF
    without locking data.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - configure a module for use in the Change integration
     - add that module to a RIF definition (no locks) and attempt to
    export that definition
    
    Potential workaround:
    
    Loosen the control of the integration trigger.... This is
    slightly dubious and will probably need more input from each
    side.

    ****************************************************************
    RIF requires modules to be opend for exclusive edit to allow
    locks and RIF ID's to be updated on export.
    Change Integration triggers prevent modules under change
    control from being opened for exclusive edit.
    

Problem conclusion

  • It is possible to export a read-only module if locks are not
    applied - RIF ID's need to be updated but this can be done
    without saving any other module data.
