Customizing document-style reports

You can use IBM® Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Publishing (PUB) to customize document-style requirements management reports using Document Studio.

Before you begin

Engineering Publishing is not included with IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management; separate installation and license are required.


  1. On the requirements application server, navigate to the following directory: {Install}/server/conf/rm/reporting/initialization/templates
  2. Navigate to the subdirectory that contains the template that you want to modify.
  3. Make a copy of the template with a unique name.
  4. Open the report template in Document Studio and modify it. See Creating a document-style report on ELM data by using Engineering Publishing for information in selecting data queries and for links to supporting concepts, tasks, and reference.
