Does object type ids changes after creating new component in ibm rdng 7.0.2 and cloning artifacts from different streams?

Manohar Jha (152) | asked Sep 21 '22, 7:52 a.m.

 If Yes, then how to get the object type ids for example "system requirement" artifact types imported from previous component when Configuration Management is enabled in ibm rm?

The documentation for cloning  says under heading Before you Begin: "Import the component properties so that both components define the same properties, such as artifact types, artifact attributes, and link types."

So yes the clone(s) have different shape URIs, these shapes are local to the config where the clone exists.

You'd get the shape URI for the cloned artifact as normal, this doesn't change because of cloning - this 'just happens' when you specify the configuration when retrieving the artifact.

It's probably a good idea to have URIs defined on all the types in the source component type system before you begin then these will be carried across when you import the type system into the component you're cloning into.

If you want to modify the types in the component you've cloned into then be careful to make these unique to avoid problems particularly with reporting where confusion can easily arise over very-similar-but-actually-different types - this series of articles provides some very good guidance on maintaining type systems Maintaining the Rational DOORS Next Generation type system in a configuration-management-enabled environment.
