Error description

  • You have created an attribute DXL column for the traceability
    using a Layout DXL column generated by the Analysis Wizard.
    Then, you archive and restore a module in a different database
    and when you open a module, you get '??Link module not found??'.
    
    Traceability Steps:
    1.    Analysis -? Wizard
    2.    Step 1
    a.    In-links
    b.    DOORS links
    3.    Step 2
    a.    Select formal module -? Specific (Module A)
    b.    Select link module -? Specific (Link Module)
    4.    Step 3
    a.    Select Object Text attribute
    5.    Step 4
    a.    One attribute per line
    b.    No recursive analysis
    c.    Finish
    DXL Conversion Steps:
    1.    Tools -? Support Tools -? Convert Layout DXL to Attribute
    DXL
    2.    Select ?In-links (Module A)
    3.    Response ? Success
    4.    Save View
    
    Then, Archive the project.
    
    View with Traceability on new workstation
    1.    Restored archive to another workstation using the same
    version of DOORS (9.3.0.6).
    2.    Open a module with traceability column and select
    Traceability with DXl Conversion view
    3.    Converted Layout DXL column displays ??Link module not

    ****************************************************************
    The basic problem is that the generated attribute DXL code
    refers to the link module by it's unique internal ID.
    However, once you import the project into a new database,
    all of the IDs are changed, so this code can never find the
    link module.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Extended the index mapping to also process attribute DXL, in
    addition to the layout DXL
    
    Used the existing DXL mapping code,  but called on the
    attribute DXL definitions.
    

Temporary fix
