Is it possible to import or export just a subset of attributes in RRC / DNG with ReqIF?

Hello!

Following situations:
I want to copy requirement modules from one project area to another (A -> B).
Project area A is the source, area B is the area where the people work with the requirements.

Now I copied one module from A to B. People start working in B.
They do not change the imported stuff, but they changed attributes of the imported requirements, which were empty during import.

Now the module in area A is updated. Some requirement text was changed.
Now I want to transfer these changes to area B.

How can I do it without overriding the already done work in area B?
I just want to export and import certain attributes or want only the updated requirements to be changed in the destination (B). (I want to merge the modules.)

I hope my situation was clearly explained and you have a solution for me.

Thansk!
Christian

I use DNG 5.0.2.

Currently it is not possible. During the ReqIF import, there is no place to address the conflicts during the merge, and a redirect replace will be performed.

The DNG with CM (still in beta) may be your answer.

Thanks for your answer, Donald.

It seems to be quite helpful.
Do you know when this feature will be part of official DNG release?
Will it be a separate release or just part of the "normal" DNG?
