JRS - Artifact showing 2 different creation dates

IBM Jazz Reporting Service
Build ID: JRS_6.0.6.1-I20200219-230

Data source: Lifecycle Query Engine scoped by configurations
Type: Current Data (table or graph)
Trace relationships and add artifacts: I want to check all my L2 Requirements and if they are used in a collection (or not).

The report delivers me 2 results for a specific requirement.
| Req. Id | Req. Collection Id |  Creation Date | Last Update Date |
|    1021 |                    | 07/08/19 10:47 | 26/08/20 10:56   |
|    1021 |                 25 | 26/08/20 10:56 | 26/08/20 10:56   |
- The RM GUI for the requirement id 1021 tells me that it was created on the 07/08/19 10:47. Why is a second creation date listed?
- The first line means that the requirement is not used by a collection, which contradicts the second line (since this requirement is actually used in a collection).

Hello  Laurent,

In regards to duplicate artifacts, a report will show all instances of the artifacts. So you will see a row for the "base" artifact and if this artifact is used in a collection, you will see additional row, one for each collection.  

If you do not want to see "base" artifact, you can just add condition to display artifacts as part of collection.

Hello Fariz,

thanks for your answer.
Do you have an explanation, why the creation date is different for the artifact used in the collection line? Is it showing the "link date" as creation date?

Yes, first date when "base" artifact was created and second is when you added it to the collection which is related to the collectionID.
