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 :
- When you create a link from a DNG artifact to a DOORS object, the link is stored only in DNG. When you open the DOORS module that contains the linked object, you will have to log in DNG, so DOORS will be able to query DNG and discover the link
You should see the "discovering Links" indicator during the process
- When you create a link from a DOORS object to a DNG artifact, the link is stored in DOORS. When you browse to the linked DNG artifact and click on the link panel, you will have to log in DWA, so DNG will be able to query DWA and discover the link. Very Important, in order to discover the link, the DOORS module must be in the working set (File-> OSLC -> Working Set)
