I have created a reqif file where I use the same SPEC-OBJECT IDENTIFIER multiple times in the SPEC-HIERARCHY as a reference.
i.e. the SPEC-OBJECT is re-used within the hierarchy.
ReqIF Studio handles this very well, you have the same SPEC-OBJECTS occurring in different locations. When you edit the status of one of the occurrences, it is also changed for the other locations – fine.
But when I import this into DOORS or Code-Beamer, those additional references are just removed, in DOORS with a warning:
The object with replication identifier ‘123’ is referenced 6 times. The additional hierarchy references ‘spechierarchy-2857’, ‘spechierarchy-2903’, ‘spechierarchy-2916’, ‘spechierarchy-2965’ and ‘spechierarchy-3160’ will be removed.
Do I get the concept wrong? My idea was, that I define a SPEC-OBJECT once, then I can re-use it within the SPEC-HIERARCHY.
This is, because our system embraces re-using objects.
