DOORS RTC unable to save unmanaged changes

Andrew Clement (7272070) | asked Jun 08 '17, 10:03 p.m.

I am using DOORS
I have a Requirements module with changes controlled by RTC.
When I open it for unmanaged changes, update attributes that are not under change control, I got the following error message on save:
"A default RCR should be mandatory for changes on change controlled attributes only."

DOORS/RTC integration is done with DXL.
It is not the load perm, but the close perm in the DXL that seems to be causing the problem.

The only way out is to comment out the line that closes the baseline module.
This will allow you to make changes to the unmanaged attributes.

The side effect of this is, the baselined version of module remains open even after you close the current version.
It is ok to leave it open, unless there's a concern with hardware resource utilization (memory consumed by doors.exe).

Users can go to "Tools -> Manage Open modules", to close the baselined version.
Closing from there will throw a DXL error, but it can be ignored.
It is not the best of workarounds, but it works for now.
