Ask a question

Can we retrieve the section Number and update the same ?

Hello All,

As per my understanding 

Modules are used as a hierarchical requirements document with numbered section headings and subheadings. The Section attribute shows the section number and changes as various requirements are promoted or demoted

My question now is, How can we update and retrieve this section attribute via the oslc rest API.

Thanks,
Navya Anand

If retrieval is for publishing the document using RPE then you can use a Word.dot stylesheet which has heading numbering turned on to recreate the heading numbsers in the published docuent.
For other types of retrieval I am not sure.

If you want to not just retrieve, but also update such information, you should consider using the new DNG Module API (currently as technical preview).
