Can DOORS Next Gen automatically detects Term in requirement description and link them to the glossary?

nicolas teulier (621712) | asked Sep 30 '15, 8:45 p.m.

very simple use case, I'm migrating an existing project from Excel to DOORS Next Gen.
I create my glossary with artefacts of type "Term".
I import my 4000 requirements.
That's good.

Now, I would like to parse these requirements to link part of their description to the appropriate term.
For example, I have a Term artefact to define the "AMR" acronym. How can I do to make sure that every time I encounter "AMR" in a requirement description, it is linked with a "Term Referenced From" link?

This can't be a manual process as it will be very long and there will be many errors.

Is it possible in DOORS Next Gen? Or should I submit a new feature request?

You can add your voice to this enhancement request:
37806: Provide automatic glossary term association in textual artifacts

If you want to do this yourself ...I imagine a JavaScript extension could be written that enables the user to do this for the current artifact (including modules).  The extension widget would be invoked from the mini-dashboard in the DOORS NG user interface.

Hi Daniel,
Thank you for your answer.
I wanted to avoid the JavaScript extension... but I might have to do so waiting for the enhancement request implementation.
