New in Design Management 4.0.5

  • Viewing and comparing resource history
  • Design Management

    Artifact Toolbar on an Impact Analysis Diagram

    In the top-right corner of an Impact Analysis diagram, there is now a toolbar containing actions that can be performed on the selected artifact or artifacts. Press Ctrl and click to select more than one artifact on the diagram.

    Artifact toolbar screen capture

    For more information, see work item 42744.

    Interactive Impact Analysis Navigation Tree

    The impact analysis navigation tree now exposes the artifact's context menu, so you can right-click on an artifact to view its context menu directly from within the tree.

    Explorer resource picker screen capture

    For more information, see work item 42655.

    Use of project explorer with Resource Picker

    You can use the project explorer to select the resources you want to use for linking, or creating reviews.

    For more information, see work item 38975.

    Additional Browser Support

    Browser support has been added for Internet Explorer 10 and Firefox 24.


    In the 4.0.5 release, the default time-out values for licenses changed:

    • Floating licenses: The default time-out value changed from 7200 seconds (120 minutes) to 3600 seconds (60 minutes).
    • Token licenses: The default time-out value changed from 7200000 ms (120 minutes) to 1800000 ms (30 minutes).

    In 4.0.5, the minimum time-out values for licenses are as follows:

    • Floating licenses: The minimum time-out value changed from 7200 seconds (120 minutes) to 1800 seconds (30 minutes).
    • Token licenses: The minimum time-out value remains at 1800000 ms (30 minutes). This value has been the same since the 4.0.3 release.
    For information about how to change the time-out values for licenses, see the documentation:

    In the 4.0.5 release, the reset frequency for the time-out of token licenses changed. Before this release, the time-out value was reset only after the license expired. Now, most actions reset the time-out value of the license to the value of the time-out. This change makes the resetting of the time-out for token licenses the same as for floating licenses. This change causes the lmgrd.log file on the Rational License Key Server to increase in size faster than it used to, because each reset of the license causes entries to be written to the lmgrd.log file. That file is in the common directory. For example, on Windows systems, the file is typically in C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\RationalRLKS\common\lmgrd.log.

    Design Management for Rational Software Architect

    Model element enhancements

    Rational Software Architect Design Manager now supports two new BPMN elements - ComplexGateway and EventBasedGateway. New element properties have also been defined for MessageBroker and the IBM WebSphere MQ domains. These properties have been added to the Deployment Planning and Automation metamodel. You can import models containing these elements into Design Management Server 4.0.5 and view them with the Rational Software Architect Web Client.

    User notification of comments

    You can alert users to new comments you add with Rational Software Architect Design Manager Client Extension. To notify a user, enter the '@' symbol immediately before a user name in a comment.

    OSLC Linking

    You can use the Rational Software Architect Design Manager Client Extension to establish links between requirements in Rational DOORS and artifacts in Rational Software Architect Design Manager.

    Design Management for Rational Rhapsody

    Resource history

    You can use Rational Rhapsody DiffMerge to view and compare the version history of a resource in Rational Rhapsody Design Manager. For more information, see work item 41742.
