DOORS NG - import csv to update content in existing module + export content of view


Adrian Haw (223120) | asked Oct 09 '15, 3:13 a.m.
I'm struggling to find a straight answer to my question about DOORS NG data update from a csv file. Maybe this community can help.
In DOORS 9 it is very easy to import data from a csv file directly into an existing module and update attributes of existing objects (artifacts) or add new objects (artifacts) into the module - is this possible in DOORS NG? Any links with a clear explanation? I also need this to happen in a batch job - not only interactively. Also easy in DOORS 9 but not so clear to me yet if possible at all possible in DOORS NG.

Next question is about exporting the content of a module (filtered artifacts of a view) to csv - this must be easier to achieve than import but again I need this available in interactive and batch modes.

Thanks for any hints and tips.

The following in the DOORS NG plan, currently under development:
44296: CSV - import / Export (Round Trip Capability)

>> Next question is about exporting the content of a module (filtered artifacts of a view) to csv - this must be easier to achieve than import
What I usually do is (1) open the module; (2) create a view that includes the columns I want to export; then (3) right-click on the view name in the left side-bar and select "export".

>> again I need this available in interactive and batch modes
I suggest checking the DOORS NG extension API to see if it has what you need (and if not, raise an enhancement request).
