RM as an OSLC service provider
The Requirements Management (RM) application in the IBM® Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) provides user interface (UI) elements and operations to applications that consume services from the RM domain for data sharing.
UI elements that RM provides
- Delegated UI dialog box for the selection of requirement resources
- Delegated UI dialog box for the selection of requirement collection resources (views)
- Delegated UI dialog box for the creation of requirement resources
- UI previews (compact rendering, rich hover) at displayed links to requirement resources
- UI previews (compact rendering, rich hover) at displayed links to requirement collection resources
- Factory resource for the programmatic creation of requirement resources
OSLC operations that RM provides
|Operation||RM V1||RM V2||Oasis Working Draft|
|POST for requirement creation||Yes||Yes|
|GET on a Requirement||Yes||Yes|
|GET on a Requirement Collection||Yes||Yes|
|QUERY on Requirement and Requirement Collection||No||Yes|
|QUERY on OSLC links||No||Yes|
|POST for baseline creation||Yes|
|GET for baselines and streams||Yes|
- The POST operation creates a requirement as the first artifact in a requirements collection. POST is not available at the database level of the service discovery tree.
- RM internal links are not included in the results of the V1 GET operation.
- RM external links are not included in the results of the V1 GET operation.
- RM internal outgoing links are included in the results of the V2 GET operation.
- RM external links are included in results for the V2 GET operation.
Modules that are located within a collection are not available to OSLC consumers through a GET operation. An attempt to add a module to a collection through a PUT operation will fail.
