DOORS how to purge deleted module baselines


Andrew Clement (727124) | asked Apr 06 '17, 1:17 a.m.

I am using DOORS 9.6.1.6.
One user created a module baseline and named it incorrectly.
He has since deleted it but wants it gone from sight.
He can still see this deleted baseline in 
menu File > Baseline > New...
menu File > Baseline > View... 
menu File > Baseline > Copy... 
menu File > Baseline > Delete...

Is there a way to purge deleted baselines?

 There is no way to do this with GUI. 

However, there is an unsupported way to hide this baseline. 
You have to do this from the DOORS server host. 
1) [DOORS client] right mouse click on the module and select properties 

2) [DOORS client] In the General tab, note down the URL of the module 

3) [DOORS server] locate the data folder
for example, 
C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Rational\DOORS_svr\9.5\data\v6data 

4) [DOORS server] locate the subdirectory that ends with the last 3 characters of the module URL 
so we want to find a subdirectory ending with 6a0.mod 
that is,
C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Rational\DOORS_svr\9.5\data\v6data\a0\00\m000006a0.mod 

5) [DOORS server] go into that directory with Windows administrator privilege 

6) [DOORS server] back up and then modify baseline.ixc, remove the deleted baseline info and save it

7) [DOORS server] restart "DOORS DB Server 9.x" service in Windows services
