Request your kind help in understanding:
a)  How do we create custom reports from RQM ?
b)  Also in RTC can we have detailed level reports so as to have the ensure calculations for different metrics with the help of the data?
c) How to create the reports if RRDI is integrated with CLM?

Hi Soma,
I see that you have 3 very general questions. Anyway here are my answers:

a)  How do we create custom reports from RQM ?
In general you have two main options - either BIRT reporting or RRDI reporting. Regarding BIRT, there is simple video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRQXF3bBLG4 (despite it is for RTC 2.0, it is very similar for RQM)

b)  Also in RTC can we have detailed level reports so as to have the ensure calculations for different metrics with the help of the data?
To be honest, I don't understand this question. Please elaborate and provide any example.

c) How to create the reports if RRDI is integrated with CLM?
I would suggest you browsing two following links:

Thanks Krzysztof Kaźmierczyk  !!! Let me go through the links you have provided.

For 2nd question: I want to have reports with default attributes. I will need some metrcs on the available data.

For e.g.I have defects logged  with effort and acual resolution dates etc. I might need metrics like Defect Density, Defect Injection rate which will constitute some formulae and calculations. Will we be able to do them using Reports in RQM?

Soma,
I think that you need calculate these metrics from work items first. Anyway when using RRDI it should not be a problem. I am not sure how easy is to get access to work items in BIRT reporting for RQM.
