IBM® Engineering Requirements Management DOORS® Next (DOORS Next) has a new Reportable REST API that enables users who create or modify templates with IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Publishing (PUB) to report on electronic signature information. The new API only displays electronic signatures if the report is run against artifacts in a baseline that has been signed. For details about the API, see DOORS Next REST API.
