Is it possible to create a report that finds all the links between artifacts where one artifact is linked to another in the primary text?

Mihaela Mih (256) | asked Nov 20 '20, 3:14 a.m.

The primary text attribute allows to insert links from the current artifact to another artifact, for example to uploaded images or uploaded excel files.

However, these links are not immediately visible/obvious. 

Ideally there is a way to create a report builder query to find all of those.
How it this possible? Is there an alternative way to do this?

Hi  Mihaela,

Report Builder does support "contains" as a condition on string properties. So you could try contains "https://" in your text attribute. However, be aware that LQE can truncate very long string literals (Minimum Size of a Large Resource (bytes) default is 2500000), so such a report might not find all of them. However, all this will do is to identify artifacts that embed such links, and will not report them as traceability links.

AFAIK, the only way to report them as traceability links is if those links are separate RDF properties and are described by a resource shape or vocabulary. For example, some applications support custom attributes and custom links, and definining a custom link should include it in the resource shape for that type of artifact. Report Builder discovers the properties and relationships of artifact types from resource shapes.

Best regards,
