Links between DOORS 9 and DNG use Link Discovery.
The link is stored in the source application and is discovered by the target application so :
You should see the "discovering Links" indicator during the process

Sizing recommendations for planning migration of data from Rational DOORS to Rational DOORS Next Generation

Are you considering migrating your data from Rational DOORS to Rational DOORS Next Generation(RDNG)?
Are you looking for guidance and best practice before you begin to be successful first time?
If so, then your starting point is definitely the detailed guidance on developerWorks on how to Migr
New Sizing and Best Practice Guide on Jazz.net's Deployment wiki
Since the developerWorks article was published, we realized that more detailed sizing information was required prior to executing the migration of data packages from DOORS 9 to RDNG. We collated pertinent sizing information from the Rati
There are significant improvements to the import timings with RDNG 6.0.2 release, so please refer to this article if you are evaluating an existing or future migration as this could indeed be an influencing factor.
The document details:
Sizing Guidelines for Rational DOORS Next Generation 6.x
Recommendations on the maximum sizes of your modules, projects and repositories so as to maximize your success when importing your packages and working in the future within RDNG.
The considerations for hardware are simplified from guidance published elsewhere in the Deployment wiki, but here they are explained within the context of how to plan for your new world.
Guidance on how to convert your Rational DOORS modules prior to migration
Invariably there will be modules and projects within DOORS 9 which will not match up to the guidance prescribed for RDNG. Use this section to understand how to easily manipulate your data before migrating.
What if the data to be migrated exceeds the recommendations?
The guidance is clearly aimed for the general use cases and is very much our strongest recommendation.
It is understood that there are very large enterprise requirements management estates out there. It is recommended that you contact IBM if this applies to you.

IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation: Basic Navigation - Getting Started with IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation: Basic Navigation By Yianna Papadakis Kantos

Migrating data from IBM Rational DOORS to IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation- With the release of IBM Rational DOORS 184.108.40.206 and IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation V6.0.1 the migration has been optimized, now automatically creating a global type system and artifact types in IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation, considering the commonalities of the type system defined in modules within DOORS, as well as links relationships. In addition, you can now incrementally migrate a project, and the two applications will automatically maintain and update link relationships with every incremental migration.
Migration is not interchange of data where data can go from one tool to another and possibly back again. Migration is a one-way move from Rational DOORS to Rational DOORS Next generation, with traceability back to the source.
Using a migration package, migration can include one or more modules and can be incremental, migrating a little at a time, and only what you need. The current version of modules is migrated along with internal external and OSLC links, OLE objects, pictures and so forth.
The history of the migrated data is not migrated however, the migration creates links in Rational DOORS Next Generation that link back to the corresponding records in Rational DOORS.

Link Validity — Coming in CLM version 6.0.1: As part of the Rational solution for Collaborate Lifecycle Management (CLM) version 6.0.1 we are introducing Link Validity, a new feature in DOORS Next Generation, Quality Manager, and Design Manager. In projects that have configuration management enabled, Link Validity can take advantage of the features that multi-stream development brings to the table.

As seen on the Jazz.net blog: A DevOps transformation
Mario Maldari and Albert Tabachnik take you through the journey of a system test organization in transforming itself into a continuous delivery, DevOps model. In a DevOps Continuous Engineering environment, with accelerated timescales, it is ever more important to focus testing efforts on those features and platforms that are most critical to your customers. The Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) system test organization challenged itself to transform to meet the demands of our business and our clients. We started off by analyzing our time investment, and shifting our focus to areas that needed greater investment. We optimized and standardized on a set of “Golden Topologies” that represent a core set of topologies used by our customers. We invested in our automated deployments, effectively streamlining our server setup and deploy process. We moved to a “solution test” model and streamlined our resources and test scenarios. Once the foundation of our transformation was laid down, we began automating our scenarios and running them daily in the pipeline, while allowing testers to focus on other areas. Overall, our transformation has allowed us to better react to how our development teams operate, as well as align our testing with how our customers deploy and use our solution...

5 minutes of smart: Tracing project requirements - By using an automated tool to facilitate tracing project requirements (in this case, Rational DOORS Next Generation), you can take charge and make managing project requirements a smooth, continuous process.
5 minutes of smart: How to link requirements to development artifacts - An important initial task to successfully manage requirements in a development project includes linking requirements and artifacts. Choosing the correct link type is key. Learn about links types in a typical RM tool such as Rational DOORS Next Generation. You can also experiment with the DOORSng tool in a 60-day free trial.
You can expand your tracing skills for free. IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation, the automated requirements management platform, makes following the links between a requirement and its origins, a requirement and other requirements, or a requirements and other artifacts, much easier. As an experiment, sign up for the fully functional 60-day free trial of DOORS Next Generation and re-manage a project you've already finished for comparison, create a new sample project to manage, or start building requirements management for a project you're about to begin for a client.

Rational DOORS Next Generation now lets you create client extensions. Extensions are complete web applications that run inside a dedicated area of the DOORS user interface, allowing users to embed custom web content. IBM Bluemix provides a powerful and easy-to-use platform for hosting web applications and extensions.
Integrate Rational DOORS Next Generation and Evernote, Part 2 - In this tutorial, the second of three parts, see how to build a web front end using the Express JS framework, and how to allow users to authenticate to the popular note-taking software Evernote using OAuth instead of using a single developer token.
Integrate Rational DOORS Next Generation and Evernote, Part 3 - In this tutorial, the last of three parts, see how to build a web front end using the Express JS framework, and how to allow users to authenticate to the popular note-taking software Evernote using OAuth instead of using a single developer token.
In this 3-part series, you've seen how to build an integration with Evernote. We started with the API and moved on to building a standalone Node.js web application that allows users to browse their Evernote data. Then you saw how to adapt this web app into a DOORS Next Generation extension. I hope that this example has given you a taste of what can be achieved with DOORS Next client extensions and a sense of how easy it is to build and deploy your own extensions using Bluemix.
Free trial: Try Rational DOORS Next Generation free for 90 days. Let this platform for global team collaboration help you manage requirements more effectively and share common administration of users, servers, and projects.
