Import requirements with links

Erwin Kunz (94687086) | asked Sep 04 '12, 9:15 a.m.

Is there a way (like in RTC) to import  Artifacts with their relationship

e.g  Artifact_1 is parent of Artifact_2 and should be imported with link?

I tried by creating a relation in RRC, export it and import it after modification.
export has an attribute "Parent of", but import doesn't recognize this as an attribute

In this V4 help topic:

It mentions:

CSV can not be used:

  • to transfer graphical artifacts (such as sketches, storyboards, and diagrams).
  • to transfer links or create links to and from artifacts.
  • for "roundtrips" (updating existing exported artifacts). Every time you import artifacts, new artifacts are created in the repository.

An alternative might be to use ReqIF, which supports the following:

The data that you can import from a ReqIF file includes:

  • Textual artifacts
  • Graphical artifacts
  • Attribute definitions
  • Attribute definitions from Link Types
  • Data types
  • Folder and folder hierarchy
  • Links
  • Link types
  • Object types
Restriction: Data import does not include:
  • Tags
  • Views
  • Comments
  • Reviews
  • Audit History
