Adding a new custom attribute to a requirement via OSLC

JOSE MARIA ALVAREZ (2614) | asked Oct 19 '17, 2:13 a.m.

 Dear all:

I have been tried to add a new attribute to a requirement that is gathered via the OSLC API in DNG. I have seen that some attributes are coming in the extended properties of a "Requirement" resource so I have tried to include a new property (URI and value) in this table of extended properties. The result is that I can update the resource (getting a 200 returning code) but the attribute and value are not finally stored. My question is:

-Is it possible to create attributes in DNG and retrieve/update them via OSLC? 

I have seen other threads in this topic but it is not completely clear how to proceed...I guess that it would be something like:

-Define the new property (domain and range)
-Add such definition to the resource shape
-Add the attribute/value according to the new shape

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

I am pretty sure you cant do that. You will have to add the new attribute in DoorsNext using the admin UI. then you can likely set it.

 Dear Ralph:

Thanks! It worked perfectly! First, it is necessary to create a new attribute in the tab about "Management of project properties" and then, add the attribute to the resource shape of a resource (in this case to the Requirement Resource Shape). Once, these two steps are done, attributes definitions and values can be accessed (and updated):
  • Definitions that are available in the resource shape of the resource
  • Values that are available as extended properties within a resource
Best regards,
