Pinned topic Is there any branch function in Doors ?

‏2012-11-29T02:47:13Z |
Hello ,

I am new user of Doors, and I want to know is there any branch function in Doors?

Our A project is completed and all the module in A Project folder has baselined , it include in/out links between modules, and our B project want to start base on the final baseline of project A with the same project structure.

I try to copy the whole project A folder and named it project B folder , but the links in the module still link to the project A folder

Anyone can help me ? thanks

    Links going from "current" version of source module to "current" version of target module in original project will completely be moved to the destination project if you copy/paste the complete project in one go (not module by module).

    When a project is copied, only the current version is taken to the new project, so if you need links between baselines in the new project, you should use archive / restore project instead of copy/paste project.
    Note that this is a "branch only" approach. If you later want to compare changes between "branches" or even "merge" later, you might want to look at tools like the "BranchManager for DOORS" by Sodius.

    Hi,
    I think it depends whether the link module is inside or outside the project.
    There is no branch management in DOORS. Unfortunately.
    You can check here: http://sodius.com/branchmanager-doors. Sodius proposes something.
    Regards,
    Alain

    I think you want to archive A and restore it as B.
