After installing CAD Integrator on a CAD users machine and assigning the appropriate security groups and licenses, does the user get an error indicating that they do not have a valid CAD Integrator license? Do not panic! This blog is meant especially for you.
The likely cause of the problem is that a problem occurred during the license assignment process. First, double check that the users profile contains the license. If it is missing there, be sure to add it. Second, go to License Manager and click on the radio button next to IBM TRIRIGA CAD Inte

Have you upgraded your IBM TRIRIGA platform only to find that you cannot see any of the graphics that were visible in your previous platform release. If so, you may want to reprocess your drawings.Please note that reprocessing your drawings can take some time, so you might want to plan this process to run during off peak hours.
To reprocess your drawings, follow these steps.
1 - As an application administrator, login to the IBM TRIRIGA Admin Console.
2 - Click on the radio button next to Database Manager
3 - Click on the link titled "Reprocess published drawings".
Under certain conditions, the reprocessing of your CAD drawings may have encountered issues during the upgrade process. It is important to always review the server log file from the 1st server startup after an upgrade. In the case of your drawings, look for "Reprocessing" in the log file. Most of the entries after that line will contain information about the reprocessing of each individual drawing. If a drawing is processed without issue, you should see a series of 7 informational messages starting with "DXF: Processing Header "to "DXF: EOF" if there is a problem during the reprocessing process, you will likely see either an error or warning message between those two informational messages. If that is the case, you will want to follow the steps outlined above once the upgrade processing has completed on that 1st server.

A common question in a new installation is where is the Real Estate Lease Abstract Offline Form as it is not in the Lease Abstract Offline in Tools Data Utilities?
Why is that so?
When you have a new install and you go to the manual to follow the instructions how to use the Real Estate Lease Abstract Offline Form the instructions point out that you must navigate to the Tools -> Data Utilities -> Lease Abstract Online and work with the Real Estate Lease Abstract Offline Form there.
But when you do so, the list is empty... Is the Real Estate Lease Abstract Offline Form a separate download in Passport Advantage or IBM Fix Central you might ask.
Not really, the Real Estate Lease Abstract Offline Form is indeed in TRIRIGA, but in another place.
The form must be downloaded first, and the spreadsheet populated, check out how:
There you go, a fresh new form out of the oven for you
Where documents go when they are uploaded may not make a difference to the average user as long as they are uploaded and can be viewed. However, to some people, where they get uploaded to does make a difference. Do they go into named folders or do they go elsewhere? Where do the files go when they are uploaded?
Where a document goes is determined by the context of the record. How does one tell what the context is? The context is determined by the 2 “buttons” at the upper right hand corner of the main portal screen for Company and Project, as shown below.
If you select Project, which you can see by the screen shot below, it shows the project name, when a document is uploaded, it will go into a named folder as shown below.
If you select Company, then it will upload into a file structure like the screen shot below illustrates.
So if support ever asks you what the context of the record is, it is referring to those 2 buttons at the top of the screen: Company or Project. We are looking for where your document went. You will not see those folder structures unless you are in Document Manager. And in many cases, users are not going to have access to Document Manager so they will not have access to it. Overall, it is good knowledge to where your document is going so if problems arise, you know where to look.

DOORS 9 - RQM integration : How to update link properties in DOORS after renaming a test case in RQM
After creating a link from RQM artifact to DOORS requirement, if you change the name of the RQM artifact (test case or step of test script), this change is not updated in DOORS : the link description and title in DOORS are still referring to the old name of the RQM artifact.
This is working as designed when the integration between DOORS and RQM uses back-linking (in other words: 2 links are created, 1 in DOORS and 1 in RQM)
There are 2 ways to correct this issue :
- Manually edit the link description in DOORS
- Run a DXL script on your DOORS module that will query RQM to gather the name of the RQM artifact for each link to RQM in the module. Then it updates the description and title of those links.
