Missing links from RQM test cases to Doors classic

Jochen Staack (55820) | asked Apr 09 '15, 4:59 a.m.
I have the following setup:

RQM 5.0.2
Doors classic with DWA connected to RQM

I have a requirement in Doors, where 8 test cases from RQM are linking to. If I look at the test cases' "validates requirement" all test cases do have a link to this requirement in Doors.
If I look into Doors and hover over the "Validated by" link, only 6 of the 8 test cases are shown. If I check the properties of the object in Doors, also only the 6 links are shown. So it seems like somehow the links in Doors have not been created.

Question 1:
What happened? How can I find this out?

Question 2:
Is it possible to add the validated by links manually?

Hi Jochen,

It's difficult to determine the cause without an investigation.  If you would like to know the cause, please open a PMR.

Yes, you can manually add the DOORS --> RQM links or leverage one of the alternatives (ordered recommendation):

1. How to verify link consistency between RQM and DOORS 9
2. Ability to see back link status in traceability view
3. OSLC Cleaner Utility

Thanks! Point 1/2 helped! I will have a look into 3 if necessary in the future!
