Use Rational Insight to view requiremenst from RRC with Folder information

Nathaniel Winkler (311) | asked Apr 08 '13, 4:14 p.m.

I am trying to build an Insight report which shows me the the requiremensts from RRC and the folder name that the requirement is located.  The folder is one or more levels below the project area. 

The report would look like this

Project Area | Folder | Requirement Name | Reference ID

I have reviewed the data dictionary in the IBM documentation and this is not defined there.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi Nathaniel,

Exposing this field will require customization.  The folder is not exposed by default, but it is available through RM's REST API.  You will need to start by modifying the "Resource" data mapping template in your XDC configuration to include the parent folder (/ds:location/ds:parentFolder/rrm:title).

Once exposed through the XDC configuration, you need to modify the RRC ETL to 1)  Query for this new attribute, 2)  Deliver the new attribute to the DW (which will require you to add a "ParentFolder" (or something similar) column to the RIODS.REQUIREMENT table).

Once that is done, you'll need to expose your new data in the Framework Manager data DW model so that it can actually be used in a report.  Hope it helps,
