Any 6.0.x version of DOORS NG support a ReqIF export of a Global (not Local) stream of an RM component?

Reason is that cross-component links in a GC stream are ignored in the ReqIF export of the local RM stream.

I don't think so. All I found on was this Plan Item that you could add your two cents to and lobby for implementation.

I did find this recent article regarding Configuration management: Best practices for collaborating with ReqIF between Rational DOORS Next Generation instances,,
which states:

ReqIF operations always occur in your current context, which can be a global or local configuration. To import, you must be in a stream.

Hi Rosa
Thanks for checking. I tried a ReqIF export of an RM component GC stream but the output is the same as per export of the same component in the RM local stream - so there's no info about cross-component links in either global/local stream export.
Guess we'll have to wait for the feature to be implemented.

I had development double check my response and they concurred with my answer and this is the right plan item for what you are looking for.
