It is possible to Export Document Object to external xml files. These files can then be used to e.g. import the Document Objects in a different project.
The exported data includes:
General Document Object data such as type, ID, revision, chapter and title
IDs of incoming and outgoing traces
Click the Export Document Objects menu item in the Action button of the applicable View. Select the Document Objects to export and click OK.
This will display the Export Document Objects dialog.
The exported document objects are treated by a (selected) xsl transformation file which converts the object to the applicable format. The following xsl transformation files are delivered with the default templates:
Default Xml Transformation
A CSV Transformation
An Excel Transformation
A HTML Transformation
An MS Outlook Transformation
Converts the content of all Rich Text and Table attributes to (humanly readable) plain text.
When exporting Failuremode-like or RiskAnalysis-like objects, the user is inquired if the traced Hazard and Mitigation objects should automatically be included in the exported set. Since Failuremode-like objects are closely tied to the traced Hazard objects, it is recommended to include these during export.
The name of the file (not including the file extension which is defined in the transformation file.)
Click OK in the Export Document Objects dialog to start the export. The result file is a zip file containing the exported xml file and in some cases additional help files.
For document object types that contain FileAttributes (such as Attachments), a copy of the file associated with the file attribute is placed in a new folder (placed in the target export directory) with the same name as the ID of the document object.
