DNG Module filter ancestors descendants

Sean F (1.3k231125) | asked Apr 17 '18, 11:54 p.m.

Artefacts are in a hierarchy in a DNG module so it would be useful to be able to set a filter and choose to show or hide ancestors and/or descendants.

Ancestors example: show all the 'high priority' requirements  AND show the heading structure to give the results context.

Descendants example: show heading 4 AND show everything under heading 4 but nothing else - i.e. show section 4 of the module only.

Are these possible?

If not can some one post the link for submitting product RFEs for DNG?

In a module in the rich client, you can modify the column settings, filter the artifacts, and save your settings as a view. The columns display the attribute values in the artifacts. You can filter by artifact type, artifact tags, attribute values, and link types.
Before you begin:Before you define the filters for a view, if you want to change the columns in the module, click the Change Column Settings icon and follow the instructions in the window that opens.
  1. Click the Filter Properties icon
  2. On the Filter by Attributes tab, click Add.
  3. Click the attribute definition to add, and then click OK.
  4. Specify the properties to filter by. For example, if you are filtering by the Name attribute and want to see all of the artifacts that contain the word Weather , from the Conditions list, select contains and in the Value field, type Weather .
  5. Optional: Repeat the previous step for Linked Artifacts, Artifact Types, and Tags.
  6. Click Apply. The artifacts that meet the criteria that you specified in your filter settings are displayed in the module.
  7. To save the filtered display of your artifacts as a view, click the Save View icon, and then do one of these steps:
    • To overwrite another view, from the Select view list, select a view.
    • To create a view, do not select a view from the Select view list. In the View name field, type a name, and then type a description. Specify whether to share the view with users or to make it personal so that only you can see it. You can also make the view available in all modules.
  8. Click Save. The view that you saved is displayed in the View list.
  9. To return to the unfiltered view, from the View list, select Standard View.
