How to retrieve all unbounded requirements of a project

Benjamin Röhl (1671424) | asked Jan 09 '18, 10:18 a.m.


we are starting to investigate the new DOORS NG module API (see, esp. to remove requirements from a module.
Until now we used the private API to remove requirements from a module. With that call we also got all unbounded requirements.

So is there a way to get all requirements, which are no more exisiting in any module when removing those from a particular module?

So basically you want all the requirements minus those bound in some modules. It will be very expensive to run I suppose.

@dnong What I would like to have is an alternative to the private method deleting a requirements from a module and getting all unbounded artifacts, thus I can delete them in an extra step explicitly.

An ideal solution should use the new introduced module API and some other API to get all unbounded requirements.

So you shouldn't get all unbounded requirements, and you just need to test whether a base artifact is reused in any modules. I know that private APIs can do that - that's when you check the "Where used" on the DNG GUI. The Module API is based on modules (working in an opposite direction) so I don't think it will work.
