Introduction


DataHub is a MagicDraw® plugin which provides a complete solution for requirements management.

DataHub can connect to and work with IBM Rational® DOORS®, IBM Rational® DOORS® Next Generation, and HP Application Lifecycle Management tools.

The DataHub plugin enables you to copy and synchronize requirements, link them to one another, as well as link MagicDraw’s model elements such as SysML Requirements or Use Cases. It allows you to create DHLink, and DHTrace links between requirements and SysML use cases and test cases and makes it possible to maintain these links or relations, and update them using bidirectional or unidirectional synchronization capabilities, thereby validating a requirement. Additionally, you could also transfer requirements to and from CSV file repositories.

Cameo DataHub uses OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration) specifications for data integration and tools collaboration. OSLC is an open community developing a set of specifications for integrating tools. OSLC enables independent software and product lifecycle tools to interact and integrate their requirements via links between related resources. OSLC queries are supported only by IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation, while OSLC links are supported by IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation as well as HP Application Lifecycle Management (only Requirement and Defect elements).

DataHub supports almost all types of MagicDraw® model elements and diagrams.

DataHub Plugin works with the following requirements management systems:

Trouble Shooting


Top

Synchronization problems occur after exporting a package to create a module.

If you want to export part of a model as a module in DataHub, you need to restart your project to avoid the problems.

Problems with committing a project when it uses read-only modules.

When using a shared module in the project, you can select whether you want to use it as read-only or read-write-enable. You need the read-write permission to commit your work into the Teamwork Server or else you will lose the committed work.
