How is migrating RequsitePro integrated with CQ to RRC/RTC V3/4 supported?

Hello,

Did anyone migrate RequsitePro integrated with CQ to RRC/RTC V3 or V4?

From the CLM V4 information center, "There is no support for migrating data from Rational RequsitePro integration with other products except for integrations with Rational Quality Manager".

If we migrate CQ used by ReqPro to RTC, do we still have the above limitation?

That is, we like to migrate CQ to RTC and ReqPro to RRC for the current integrated CQ/ReqPro so that the migrated requirements can have the links to new work items in RTC which are created by migration process based on the linked CQ requirements from ReqPro requirements:

1) Is this supported?

2) What will we lose after the migration?

3) Any manual updates needed for work items and/or requirements after the migration?

Appreciate if you can share your experience.

Hey Frank

Migrating ReqPro-CQ integration isn't supported out of the box. You can move the ReqPro data to RRC, but the links to other applications will be lost, they must be added manually again.

Feel free to open RFEs or engage the services team.

Thanks

There is a help topic:  http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/clmhelp/v4r0/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.rational.rrm.help.doc%2Ftopics%2Fr_reqpro_migration_integrations.html

That says

For Rational ClearQuest integration, the ID for the integrated record is migrated as a textual attribute. Links to the record are not provided. Changes to the related requirement and record are not synchronized.

One other thought: given the link info is migrated, it's probably possible to re-link them using administrative scripts.  IBM Software Services for Rational (ISSR) could help with this.
