Error description

  • Summary:
    *********
    
    Modification of Entity type doesn't work properly with a type
    for added element.
    
    Description:
    **********
    
    When working with a user-defined Rhapsody Type Analysis and
    trying to re-analyze/re-load the projects in gateway, error
    message(s) similar to the below are reported:
    
    'The current project defines the following modifications to
    elements that no longer exist in the loaded documents.
    You can either delete the modifications, or recreate the missing
    elements in the document.
    You can select 'Copy' to place this message in the clipboard,
    or select 'OK' and review the rules for this project for more
    information.
     - entity 'GUID 283aea20-7b34-46a7-85f0-365e2abac977 -
    SFB_MC_L2_TICompCheckECUResistCompTemperature'
    Elements added from IBM Rational Rhapsody Gateway which parent
    do not exist anymore in original document:
     - reference 'Reference to 'Requirement: 4.14.2.1.c.1TCOMP SDD
    Review'' on 'GUID 283aea20-7b34-46a7-85f0-365e2abac977 -
    SFB_MC_L2_TICompCheckECUResistCompTemperature''.
    
    The intention is to establish traceability (coverage) between
    safety requirements and software architectural elements. The
    safety requirements are specified in a simple XML format and the
    software architectural elements are specified by a Rhapsody
    model. The required software architectural elements are captured
    as 'Entity' elements. The coverage links are stored in Rhapsody
    Gateway only (in a modification file), i.e. they will not be
    imported to the Rhapsody model.
    
    As a result, all the entity elements and coverage links are
    handled as invalid and have to be removed.
    
    It is observed that the source of the reported problem is the
    user-defined type that has been created to analyze the Rhapsody
    project (i.e. VW MQB EPS SWA - Safety View - SysML). It was
    found that, if we change the type of analysis of the Rhapsody
    project to 'Rhapsody SysML' from the existing 'VW MQB EPS SWA -
    Safety View - SysML', the reported error is no longer observed
    and the 'SafetySatisfaction' links are also preserved.
    
    User is aware that, for 'Rhapsody SysML' analysis type, the
    reported error is no longer observed. However, that is not the
    same configuration as the specific customized analysis type
    contains a definition for Entities, Rhapsody SysML doesn't.
