Error description

  • When the exported module contains two objects with the same
    Element Guid and Element Type values, the export to DOORS fails
    on the line highlighted.
    
    void deleteObject(Object anObject) {
         LinkRef lr
         for lr in anObject <- "*" do {
               logError("Failure: DOORS Object "
    identifier(anObject) " '" anObject."Object Heading" "' has
    in-links, so it can not be deleted. Remove the in-links from
    DOORS in order to allow Object deletion")
               return
         }
         softDelete(anObject)
    }
    
    The reason is that it gets confused with the two objects and it
    tries to delete the first object twice.
    
    Here is a piece of customer script that contains the duplicate
    deletion:
    
    find(objectsForInts, 504015072, objCurrent)
    if (!null objCurrent) {
    deleteObject(objCurrent)
    } else logError("Failure: Can't delete object 'GUID
    bbd623c0-a98b-41e1-a957-d420431933f7'")
    find(objectsForInts, 504021088, objCurrent)
    if (!null objCurrent) {
    deleteObject(objCurrent)
    } else logError("Failure: Can't delete object 'GUID
    bbd623c0-a98b-41e1-a957-d420431933f7'")
    
    The problem is that softDelete error is not caught , so there is
    no clear error message that comes up.

Problem conclusion

  • Improved error handling for deleteObject function.
    Since the error was actually not happening with recent version
    but the behavior was not correct since it tries to delete both
    duplicated objects instead of removing just one of them.
    Now it shows a warning message in case there are duplicate GUIDs
    in source document or exported DOORS module.
