- Get a fast overview of data exchanged via ReqIF with links to directly access configuration.
- Automatically import ReqIF documents that are uploaded to a local folder on the server.
- Automatically export LiveDocuments that are modified and configured for export to a local folder on the server.
- Extract to <Polarion>/polarion/extensions and restart Polarion.
Open "Automated ReqIF Exchange" configuration page in Polarion Administration and specify configuration parameters as follows:
- Account Vault Key: Use a vault key parameter previously configured in the Account value key admin settings. Please see online help for more information.
- Watch for changes on: This is a directory / folder location on your Polarion Server. The plugin monitors this folder for ReqIF files to import.
- Automatically export to: This is a directory / folder location on your Polarion Server. The plugin uses this folder for export. You can additionally specify a delay to export, in minutes. If you specify 0 minutes, the moment the live document is saved by a user, the plugin will automatically create the ReqIF file in the specified folder. If you specify 5 minutes, then after saving the document, the plugin will wait 5 minutes before an export. This is helpful if the plugin has being set up and many changes are being made on the live document.
To avoid conflict please use a different folder location for import and export.
In the specification area below, you will see the status (needs configuration, successful export/import, unsuccessful export/import) of live docs/specifications that are suitable for Automated ReqIF export/import. In order for a specification to be automatically exported or imported a manual export/import should be done first. Once a manual configuration has being set up that specifies mapping rules, the plugin will then use those settings for automatic import/export.
The plugin provides an easy to use hyperlinks to view the log file of any import/export.
