Import & automatically create links from csv - format of linking info for project & stream?

Adrian Haw (248434) | asked Feb 20 '17, 7:18 a.m.

It's possible to import link information from csv and get the links auto-created as part of import process when you specify a link type attribute, eg: Link:Validated By and then enter data in that column, eg: {LINK id=8972} where the id is an artifact identifier. If I only specify the artifact id then a link is created to the base artifact but... how to specify a project and stream?

Are you saying that you want to import the artifacts into a specify configuration, or even multiple configurations within one import?

Hi Donald
Yes, configuration management is enabled and linking could be inside a particular local (RM) stream of a project or between streams of projects in a global config.

Since posting the question I found that as well as specifying the link target as <artifact id> which always creates a link to the base artifact (not useful in our case) you can also specify in <moduleid>.<artifact id> format which imports and creates links within the same project in the local RM stream you are working in (current context).

Open problem is how to specify target in another project within the context of a global config?
