Error description

  • Attributes that should be editable in the AWAY Database (where
    the ReqIF file is imported) remain Locked ? cannot be edited.
    
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    -----------------------
    1.? Create a Module M1 and create a new Attribute (say Text) A1
    
    2.? Add the newly created Attribute to the Standard View of the
    Module and save it as a new View say V1.
    
    3.? Create another View in the Module which contains only one
    column corresponding to the newly created Attribute A1. Name it
    as V2.
    
    4.? Create a new ReqIF Definition by using the Module M1, Lock
    Attributes, select V1 in Include
    data in View and select V2 as Apply locks to view.
    
    5.? Export this ReqIF Definition to ReqIF format.
    
    6.? Import the ReqIF file in an AWAY database OR you can import
    the same into any other new DOORS Project of the existing DB.
    
    7.? You would observe in the newly created Module (created from
    Importing the ReqIF file) the attribute A1 is not editable.
    
    Workaround:
    ---------------
    Instead of exporting the definition as ReqIF format, export it
    as RIF format.

    * select V2 as Apply locks to view.                            *
    * 5.> Export this ReqIF Definition to ReqIF format.            *
    * 6.> Import the ReqIF file in an AWAY database OR you can     *
    * import the same into any other new DOORS Project of the      *
    * existing DB.                                                 *
    * 7.> You would observe in the newly created Module (created   *
    * from Importing the ReqIF file) the attribute A1 is not       *
    * editable.                                                    *
    *                                                              *
    * If the same set of steps are performed and the ReqIF         *
    * Definition is exported as RIF format, the attribute A1 is    *
    * indeed available for editing in the AWAY Database. Hence,    *
    * the issue is seen only when the definition is exported as    *
    * ReqIF format.                                                *
