DOORS NG 6 - no module baselining available


Adrian Haw (223120) | asked Mar 27 '16, 5:38 a.m.
When will it be possible to baseline modules in DOORS 6?
Seems this was possible in DNG 5 - what was the reason for removing this basic end-user requirement?

This is due to the design change (the introduction of Configuration Management).

Hi Donald

So IBM is still working on the functionality of module baseline in Config Management?


Donald Nong commented Mar 28 '16, 3:12 a.m.

No. The function is now part of the Configuration Management, which is a separate component.

Hi Donald,
So module baselining is now available in which version of config management?


Donald Nong commented Mar 30 '16, 9:50 p.m.

There are no more module baselines in RDNG 6.0 and 6.0.1. They are replaced by CM baselines. Configuration Management is a component separate from RDNG, but still in the same CLM offering.

Hi Donald,

Still not clear to me - is it possible to baseline a module? Yes or no.
(I don't care which Jazz component right now - just need to know if this fundamental tool capability is available or not).

If you mean a baseline for a single module, the answer is no. The baseline is for the whole project in the new version.

Hi Donald
OK, clear. Thanks for your feedback. I'll submit an enhancement request for this (if one does not already exist).

 This is really problematic, the configuration management is relevant only in cases that each project area handles a specific product.

In many cases, customers choose to work on a one project area mode where all info and projects are managed in one area that leaves on.

In such cases the CM is unfortunately not relevant.

In any case i do not understand why the new capability replaces the old module baseline. modules, as they are documents need the ability have individual versioning and the ability to compare between versions(As in the regular DOORS).

This is a big issue for me...
