How to explore a DNG Change Set with RPE

In order to generate differential reports (listing evolutions of DNG artifacts) with RPE, i want to list the modifications stored in a change set.

My problem : i don't know how to define the data source corresponding to a change set.
Is it even possible ? Thanks !

David.

Hi David,

If you enable configuration in DNG, then follow the steps below
https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SS6RHZ_6.0.6/com.ibm.rational.pe.publishing.doc/topics/t_globalconfig.html

During these steps, the prompt will appear to let you select the configuration such as Change Set.

FYI, here is the updated manual for DNG REST API. https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/DNGReportableRestAPI

Hi. Thanks for your answers. I understand that it is not possible to configure a data source corresponding to a change set in order to access to the list of modifications of the change set.

However, is it possible to explore the DNG artifacts in the context configuration of the change set and access to the modifications only without exploring all the artifacts and reading the history of modifications of each one ?

Hello

I do not think that is possible.
I would also be surprise that the history contains only the change in the Change Set. I expect it will include all the changes of the stream it is based on.
You would need to filter on the history/changeLog/modified date value to get the changes done in the change set itself.

This capability has not been considered for reporting. We cannot see changes introduced by changesets. You may raise an Enhancement against DNG.

You can try appending oslc_config.context to the URI:
https://<server>:9443/rm/publish/resources?resourceURI=_LWYKEZmcEeiakJ1-ECRhWA&oslc_config.context=https://<server>:9443/rm/cm/changeset/_aidxQJsyEeiakJ1-ECRhWA

OR configure the data source in RPE as follows:
URI:
https://<server>:9443/rm/publish/resources?resourceURI=_LWYKEZmcEeiakJ1-ECRhWA
Configuration-Context    :
https://<server>:9443/rm/cm/changeset/_aidxQJsyEeiakJ1-ECRhWA

However, you see 2 issues here.
1. The responses do not contain deltas (what changed in the changeset) but the current state.
2. Delivered changesets are not listed in the configuration picker.
