Why am I getting deleted text returned in my JRS Report?


Timothy Distel (7116) | asked Jan 16 '19, 11:04 a.m.

 Hello,


I am using CLM Suite 6.0.6.

I'm running a JRS report from RDNG to return requirement primary text, among other information. The primary text has changed over time i.e. "System must provide the capability to fly per Fly Standard 2032" to "System must provide the capability to fly". In this particular example where text was removed from the primary text attribute of the requirement, the JRS report returns multiple rows - one with the text as it should be, and one with the text before the change was made to remove half of it. Is this a defect?

I am using LQE as the data source, and the change to remove the text happened almost a year ago.

Hi Timothy,

There are 2 text attributes associated with artifacts in DNG.

Primary Text and Name.

JRS reports Name in some instances and Primary Text in other instances. Check which attribute your JRS report is reporting.

By default Name is equal to the first line from Primary Text. If you update Primary Text then Name will update to reftlect the first line of Primary Text.

If you manually edit Name however then it becomes unsychronised from Primary Text and will only re-synchronise when you set Name to blank.

You can batch re-sychronise by using CSV import to set all Names to blank or by using a Javascript widget to do the same.

All of the artifacts in our instance of DNG have titles not synchronized with primary text. With that being said, the report I built is reporting both Name and Primary Text. In the report itself there is no discrepancy with the name of the artifact, but it displays two rows for the single artifact because it reports two seperate values for primary text, one for what the primary text used to be, and another for what the primary text is now. Do you have any insight into how this can happen?
