Move an RM artifact from one RM component/Stream to a different RM component/Stream

Glyn Costello (13837) | asked Oct 06 '21, 4:18 a.m.


Is it possible to move a text artifact/requirement from one component to another? We have a component with artifacts where we want to now break that down into smaller components for better reuse and I want to move some artifacts into one component, some artifacts into the other component, and leave some requirements in the original component.

It is possible to  clone an existing artifact or module into another component. This creates a new version of the existing artifact and you could also delete the original artifact after, if you want.

Another option is to use the Copy from component'  for the artifacts or modules. And then delete the originals after. But this would in fact create copies, so the history is not maintained and the artifacts will get new ID's.

Both methods have the option to also copy the links.
Note: Before using either method make sure the type system is aligned, for example by importing the component properties of the source into the target component.

For comparing these 2 methods, see:

 Hi, thanks! As we almost always use Global Configurations, I see "Cloning" as a bit of a risk, is there anyway I can disable the option to Clone and instead only permit Copy (then delete the original)?

Will ELM prevent Cloning of an artifact if the target component/stream is already in the same Global Configuration?

If you attempt to clone a requirement from component A to component B, then this will be prevented if there is any global configuration hierarchy that includes a DN configuration of component A and a configuration of component B.
