How to configure RPE template for DNG?

I have built a working Rational Publishing Engine (2.1.2) template for DOORS Next Gen (6.0.2, iFix 11).  I am able to run it from the RPE launcher and have it produce a document (though it takes a lot longer than I would suspect and longer than the OOTB reports).  However, I am not able to integrate RPE into the DNG publishing tools.  I've followed what minimal directions exist but it complains about a configuration error with the exact template I used to create a document from the launcher.  Are there further special configuration instructions to include an RPE template in DNG that are not being identified in user  guides?

You do not need to configure RPE template. But note that the data source names in RPE template must be any of the artifact formats supported in DNG REST API. (For example, you can have "resources" or "_resources" as data source schema name in RPE template, but you should not use "DNG Resource" or "Resource 1".)

To add custom RPE template, you may refer the steps in https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/RRCtemplatesConfigurationFilesForReportWizard

So I should be able to take a working RPE template and copy it directly into the rrdg templates folder - with no other modifications - and have it work from inside DNG as long as it is listed in the Manifest?

But note that the data source names in RPE template must be any of the artifact formats supported in DNG REST API.

What does that mean? Do I have to change the default names of the created data sources - DNG Module, DNG Text?

Right. It should be one of the "Supported artifact formats" in https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/DNGReportableRestAPI.
You should change the default names of data sources to modules, text, etc.
