Can not export whole module from DNG

Mario Matov (1519) | asked Dec 13 '17, 9:23 a.m.

DOORS NG is new for me and I am trying to export a module from it. I managed to export but only one item from the module. When I add the ID of the module instead of ID of single item no errors are present but the word file is empty. I tried with my own template(with data source DNG.text) and also with the predefined one called "DNG_Module.dta" but as I said only blank word document was created.
Could somebody tell me why I can not export a whole module?

Looks like you are not setting the correct data source URL. If you are using DNG_Module.dta, "URI" for modules data source should be set to

You can also use "Find" option to find the data source URL. Right click on Data Source: modules and choose "Configure Data Source...". Click "Find" button in "Configure XML Data Source" window. In "Find data source URL" window, copy/paste url from the browser (where the module is open) and click "Find" button. After User Authentication (you may need to set Authentication type to OAuth), click Configure button. The data source will be configured with correct URL.
