    ------------
    Folder fld = folder '/p'
    
    string src = '/p/source'
    
    
    
    string t1 = '/p/target1'
    
    string t2 = '/p/target2'
    
    string t3 = '/p/target3'
    
    
    
    string lnk = 'links'

    print removeLinkModuleDescriptor(fld, src, t2);
    
    print removeLinkModuleDescriptor(fld, src, t3);
    
    
    
    print addLinkModuleDescriptor(fld, src, t1, false, true, lnk,
    '');
    print addLinkModuleDescriptor(fld, src, t2, false, true, lnk,

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Customer is running a DXL script and the observed behaviour is
    quite different than what is expected.
    
    After each run, the list of linkset pairings should be
    identical: three modules should be connected.
    
    After the first run, three modules are connected, after the
    second run, only one module is connected, after the third run,
    three modules are connected.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code modification to fix the issue.
    

Temporary fix

  • There is no workaround for this issue
    

Comments

  • This happens in versions of DOORS prior to DOORS 9.5.1.2. This i
    s a client side fix.
