RTC Mapping between Epic and DNG Component

Shriraam Balasubramanian (4021026) | asked May 03, 8:32 a.m.


Is there a one-to-one mapping between RTC Epic to DNG Component?
If yes, how do perform that?

Best regards,

There is no built-in mapping from an RTC Epic (or any other RTC item type) to a DNG component.

I am assuming that by RTC Epic, you mean an RTC work item type.
If you indicate why you want/need such a mapping, we might be able to give you some guidance on how to achieve it.

Hello Geoff,

Thanks for your response.
Yes, that's right we want to have the traecaiblity between RTC Work Item type - Epic ->DNG Component.

Let me give a background on why we need this, 
1.) We have different projects created for our Automotive product  developed in DNG as Scope, Feature, Function, with different components inside.
2.) We also have RTC projects used for the planning the tasks for the release. This is linked with DNG modules and Artifacts.

As per our process, we create GCs for every release planned for the milestone. 
We include all the DNG baselined components and RTC releases.

It will be really great if we also could see the mapping of the RTC Work Item :Epic-> DNG Component.

Best regards,

Hi Shriraam,

Good Morning,  
I'm not sure if you are talking about an OSLC Link type for this but I do not think that is possible..   What I would suggest is you create a view in the DNG Module (if that's possible not the complete component in DNG) and then use this as a link for the RTC Work Item EPIC...   
This will enable you to refine the content / view / columns in DNG and will then provide the "EPIC connected to the required Content in DNG.
It's one solution option for you.
The other option is to use a JRS report to package up the DNG Data and then look into connecting this to the RTC EPIC...  
Somethings to try or suggestions.
