 However, URL link is just text type. I think IBM should have a way to export that link, it will help a lot for some integration processes.

 I always wonder why I even spend the time to try to find the answers, when I realize the information is ignored anyways.


From the Team Wiki link: 

CSV support in Rational DOORS Next Generation (DOORS NG) is intended for simple Import and Export operations. e.g. Exporting to a spreadsheet. Thus CSV is limited to the creation of artifacts and does not and will not support artifact update nor delete. 

CSV is not the main export and import format for DNG, ReqIF is.

Hi Lubomir


There are two simple ways to create links without needing to get the artifact URI - using link by attribute, or by creating links using CSV import. See Davyd Norris's answer here: https://jazz.net/forum/questions/272149/is-there-a-way-to-export-the-uri-if-it-is-not-already-linked-from-dng-to-csv-or-xls

CSV import allows link creation within DNG and IIRC also e.g. DNG<-QM - the best way to start is to export a view which already has a link of the type needed, and use this template, experiment to ensure you have the correct format for the source of the link in QM - obviously you need write permission in QM to be able to create the link. If you can't create the link manually then import won't be able to create it.

For all I can tell without trying myself, the answer is: you can't.
What I did and anyone could have is:

  1. Google https://www.google.com/search?q=doors+next+csv+export
  2. Read https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/elm/6.0.6.1?topic=files-exporting-artifacts-csv-spreadsheet - arbitrary version sionce the question does not contain any
  3. Followed https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/DNGCSVImpExp
Links are no where mentioned. Supported data types are textual with some additions.

I stand to be corrected.
