Style of RichText tables should be configurable.

When creating a table in a RichText enabled field of RSA (for instance under the Documentation tab in the properties view), the table comes with a global border, and each single cell is also bordered. This gives the confusing impression that every...

Ability to adjust the line height in the rich text documentation

There is no setting to change the whitespace line height in the rich text editor. Currently, if you type a line in a model element's rich text Properties > Documentation and then press ENTER, the cursor will appear, not on the next line, but ra...

Expose internal API to compute configuration properties for all model resources

At the moment, there is no public API in Rational Software Architect (RSA) to allow you to calculate model resource properties to be added to the transformation configuration files. This calculation is currently done by the configuration editor it...

RSA DAP: Realization links between conceptual and physical units not checking customized attributes

When you create realization links between conceptual and physical units, the realization link is meant to check that the values defined in the physical unit matches the values defined in the conceptual unit. However, it is only checking the predef...

RSA DAP RAM Plug-in: When publishing a new asset using asset management perspective in RSA dependent assets are not picked up

When publishing a new asset using asset management perspective in RSA dependent assets are not picked up. It should be transparent that any topologies that are imported to the to-be-published topology is automatically configured with a Topology de...

RSA DAP: Work practice document: DP&A > Source Control > Rational Asset Manager

Today, the user can have unexpected results when working in RSA DP&A with source control and Rational Asset Manager since there are no documented guidelines for working with both systems together. Specifically, work practices and subsequent pr...

RSA DAP: Validator for Port Uniqueness

In Deployment Planning, a validator should be available for IP Ports to verify uniqueness across all units configuring ports in the scope of an operating environment. For example, the TCP Listener for MQ must determine an IP port for a given IP Ad...

RSA DAP: Constraints not well defined for MQ and Broker Deployment Planning units

Feature implementation request and supplemented documentation to be produced for RSA gaps found during testing: * Queues/channels - need constraints added to ensure cluster and cluster namelist do not appear together * All channels - connection na...

RSA DAP: Unit Installation State update on Realization link resolution

Scenario:1. A conceptual topology representing asset version x is represented in a physical topology as an imported topology2. A physical topology represents all Units being in an Installed state3. The designer imports an updated version of the co...
