 You can try designing the template based on sample template TestPlan-TestCase-WorkItem-Requirement.dta (available under %rpe_home%\templates\cross-product).

 Hi ,

Because RPE is consist of RPE Studio and RPE Launcher

This example is only the TestPlan-TestCase-WorkItem-Requirement.dta which is used in "RPE Studio" perspective.
I also need the *.dsx example in  "RPE Launcher" perspective.  Need to modify URL and configuration context in the "Data Source" option.

But follow this link generate an empty report .
Pls help me

 Can you confirm if the project alias name used in the URL is correct? You can try requesting the same URL in browser or any REST client and see if it returns the data.  You can also try using  https://server:port/qm/service/ as the data source URI.

Because I 'm new to RPE. so I'm not quite sure about project alias.
I try this link    https://server:port/qm/service/ as  data source URI. generate same empty document

 You can use https://<server:port>/qm/projectAreaMetadata to get project area information. You should see project area name, item id, configuration management and alias.
