The missing links are identified and can be fixed by the broken link icon.
This has been implemented as a user setting. A customer recently asked why is this not the default? Well, consider the actual impact of this if you have thousands of test cases linked to requirements. It will send thousands of requests to DWA. With hundreds of users, DWA would need to be scaled to manage that increase in load. I would leave this feature for the users who need it. I would not activate it for every user as every user is not interested in the link status.

A splash screen is a graphical control element consisting of window containing an image, a logo and the current version of the software. A splash screen usually appears while a game or program is launching.
Most customers would like to modify the splash screen on the applications and replace the default IBM Logo with their company logo.
1. Stop the UrbanCode Deploy Server/Release Server
CD to $UCD
2. Rename the existing ibmLogoDark.png to a different name
Copy the required logo to the same location in .png format (50PX preferred)
3. Rename the logo to ibmLogoDark.png
CD to $UCD
4. Edit the login.css file modify the padding-top to 150 or a appropriate value to place the image in the Logic Frame
5. Start the UCD Server and enjoy your new splash screen!

I most commonly see DOORS Web Access (DWA) installed on its own server and I prefer this for two reasons:
An important related note is that DWA should be close to the DOORS database server. A ping should be less than 50ms between where the database server is running and where DWA is running. I have twice seen DWA put in a remote location (a different city), with ping times significantly in excess of 50ms. The performance was unacceptable with operations such as login and opening modules timing out.
