blue arrow icon in links viewed in DOORS NEXT (ALM 6.06)

What does this icon (a blue arrow added next to the link icon) mean ?

For understanding :

- All DNG-RQM or DNG-DNG links with this bue arrow icon are grayed out

- they cannot be exported, either by the XL view export or by JRS.

Note: the PA (DNG and RQM) are in a global configuration context

The blue arrow means that the end of the link you're looking at was made in the global context ie. made directly against the artefact itself, sitting in a folder in the Artifacts view.

This link will be visible in every context in which you view the artefact.

If you are seeing the blue arrow, it means you're looking at it from a module context, and this is why it's not being exported - the link isn't sitting in the context you're trying to export from

Also good to know:
In general, as explained, the blue arrow on a link means that the link is related to a base artifact (artifact in a folder) and not to a module binding (artifact in a module).

For all link types, by default these links are not exported unless you set the rm/admin >advanced property "EnableCoreBaseArtifactLinksWhenExporting" to true.
