Rational DOORS Web Access Custom Type Read Only

Sin Ly (2157) | asked Jun 12 '15, 5:52 a.m.
I have been successful in accessing my modules using the querybase link. But I can not access my custom types, they are all readonly=false. 

I can see in Rational Doors Client, that they can all be read in the access rights.

If you are looking at accessing value of a custom attribute, then it is accessible.
If you do a GET on any object URI directly (with Accept and OSLC-Core-Version headers), you'll find the complete representation of the object including custom types - provided you have access to it in GUI.
If you want to access the custom attribute values using queryBase and, then you'll likely need to use rm_property:attrDef-xxxx. You can find what the name is (attrDef-xxxx) by looking up the resourceShape.
For example, try something like this:
https://<server>:<port>/dwa/rm/oslc/query/urn:rational::1-55718b4938b21a1e-M-00000020?oslc.where=dcterms:creator="User 1"&,rm_property:attrDef-1002

Hope that helps.

In addition, I have access to these values in DOORS Web Access.

Is that an enumerated attribute? If that's the case, you'll probably find the values in terms of links appended with #1, #2 and so on representing different values.. For example, one of the rdfs:member is as below:
      <oslc_rm:Requirement rdf:about="https://<server>:<port>/dwa/rm/urn:rational::1-55718b4938b21a1e-O-19-00000020">;
        <rm_property:attrDef-1003 rdf:resource="https://<server>:<port>/dwa/rm/urn:rational::1-55718b4938b21a1e-M-00000020/types/attrDef-1003#2"/>;
        <dcterms:title rdf:parseType="Literal">19: Computer hardware resource utilization requirements</dcterms:title>

Are you not getting even this? If so, its probably worth pursuing this via PMR..
If you are getting link representation, you can use "useEnumLabel=true" in the query, to get the actual value of enumerated attribute (instead of link representation as shown above).

 Thanks a lot, that worked. I can now see the values of my custom types that are enumerations. 

I find it kinda weird that they do not appear when I do an*. I just get this:

<rm_property:attrDef-1005 rdf:parseType="Literal"/>;
<rm_property:attrDef-1001 rdf:parseType="Literal"/>;

Is this expected behavior?

Also... what is the reasoning behind having the "readonly"=false for the enumerations, if I can actually read them by using "useEnumLabel=true"?

Sudarshan Rao commented Jun 15 '15, 5:11 a.m.

Not sure what's going wrong with your query.. I'm able to get all properties using*
And, "readonly"=false - states if the attribute is read-only or not. For example, Absolute Number is a read-only attribute of an object - so that property will have this flag set to true. All user created attributes will be set as false - since they can be updated.
It is not dependent on ACL set on attributes for the currently logged in user (that's my guess, I've not checked).

 So I do not know if it is the best desiction but you can extract the resource shape for the formal module. For example
 I have requirement with enum attribute
 <rm_property:attrDef-1004 rdf:parseType="Literal">HEADING</rm_property:attrDef-1004>

So what is the real name. I request the resourceShape for the module

        <dcterms:title rdf:parseType="Literal">_TextType</dcterms:title>
        <oslc:name rdf:datatype=""
          <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://localhost:8080/dwa/rm/urn:rational::1-55422447386d3378-M-00000200/types/attrDef-1004#4">
            <dcterms:identifier rdf:datatype=""
            <oslc:label rdf:parseType="Literal">RECOMMENDATION</oslc:label>
        <oslc:readOnly rdf:datatype=""
          <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://localhost:8080/dwa/rm/urn:rational::1-55422447386d3378-M-00000200/types/attrDef-1004#1">
            <dcterms:identifier rdf:datatype=""
            <oslc:label rdf:parseType="Literal">HEADING</oslc:label>
        <oslc:propertyDefinition rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/dwa/rm/urn:rational::1-55422447386d3378-M-00000200/types/attrDef-1004"/>
        <oslc:valueType rdf:resource=""/>
          <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://localhost:8080/dwa/rm/urn:rational::1-55422447386d3378-M-00000200/types/attrDef-1004#2">
            <dcterms:identifier rdf:datatype=""
            <oslc:label rdf:parseType="Literal">DEFINITION</oslc:label>
          <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://localhost:8080/dwa/rm/urn:rational::1-55422447386d3378-M-00000200/types/attrDef-1004#3">
            <dcterms:identifier rdf:datatype=""
            <oslc:label rdf:parseType="Literal">INFORMATION</oslc:label>
        <oslc:occurs rdf:resource=""/>

So here you can see the allowed values as well as the real name of the attribute _TextType.
