RPE usage with DOORS NG

Adrian Haw (2741241) | asked Oct 18 '16, 5:34 a.m.
I'm a long-time user of RPE with DOORS9 but for RPE & DOORS NG 6.0.2 this is proving a real headache. What I cannot find is a clear guide/training material - what little I find looks out of date, is text-based with no examples and therefore I am having a lot of trouble trying to figure out how to use RPE with DNG 6.0.2.

Does anyone have a link to material (pref with screenshots as the little text-based docs I have found seem to be out of dat and do not match what I see in DNG 6.0.2) which clearly shows:
1. For RPE Designer Studio, how to link to a DNG database and import a data source schema
2. For DNG 6.0.2, how to run a document generation for a module using an RPE template

You may start with the video and refer reportable REST API wiki for DNG for supported artifact types and URLs to be used.

 Subramanya beat me to the answer. I went through all 6 youtube videos and have a working RPE with DNG.

It helped somewhat but... how do I detect the attributes in my project and module so I can format different attributes according to artifact type?

<rrm:format> entry provides artifact type information of the artifacts in a module. If you are using RPE 2.1 or later, I suggest referring to the example template DNG_Module.dta (under %rpe_home%\templates\DNG). You will find the template comments useful in understanding the template.

Hi - module printing templates I see are...



Are these what you mean?

No, these are the templates shipped with DNG. The one I mentioned is in RPE installation path (shipped with RPE). If you are designing a custom template, you can refer DNG_Module.dta (under %rpe_home%\templates\DNG).

OK, found it. I made a very basic template to print out some default attributes and that finishes in 55 seconds when exporting a module but the template DNG_Module.dta never finishes - gets as far as "CRRPE1064I Finalizing document generation. Writing output files..." and hangs forever (at least never comes back in ~2 hours). Same parameters as for my very basic template which does finish ok.
