  We are looking for the best way to accesst Doors data to something like SOLR for Tableau or analysis. We would like something that would also work for Doors Next Generation (DNG).  Is the XML ODBC driver an option,  is there a service that exports ReqIF that can be called, DXL (will DXL work with DNG?), OSLC? Something like Sodius MDAccess that works for 9 and NG.

Any guidance would be appreciated.
Thank you,

Hi Jay,

Your best bet for DNG would be OSLC or the reporting API.  DNG does not support DXL nor is there a service that exports ReqIF automatically.  For DOORS, DXL would be your best bet.  Hope it helps,

 Hi Benjamin;

     Thank you, for the answer, that is what I was expecting.
 Do you know anything about the odbc connection mentioned in: Rational Insight

"Defining Rational DOORS as a data source
You can set up the connections for Rational® DOORS® so that you use the XML Data Configuration tool to work with the data configuration files. The XML ODBC driver uses the configuration information to extract data."

I don't see what version of doors this works with. It would be, possibly, an easier task if the driver works with 9.6.
Thanks again,

Hi Jay,

You can obtain doors.xdc from your DWA 9.6.0 server.

You usually do not need to customize it in XML Configuration Tool, so register it in unixODBC. Then you will have an ODBC interface with your DWA server. You can do these steps without Rational Insight. Hope it helps.
