Configure RMI for Interaction with Microsoft Office Applications and IBM Rational DOORS Software

The Requirements Management Interface (RMI) must communicate with external software products such as Microsoft® Office and IBM® Rational® DOORS® software to establish links between requirements and Simulink® model elements.

Perform initial configuration steps to set up the RMI if you want to:

  • Use ActiveX® controls for navigation from Microsoft Office documents to Simulink models (PC only).

  • Use the RMI with IBM Rational DOORS software (PC only).

  • Use the RMI with IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation web server.

Configure RMI for Microsoft Office Interaction

When you work with older requirements documents that include ActiveX controls inserted by previous versions of Simulink, register ActiveX controls. More recent versions of Simulink use HTTP hyperlinks to navigate from Microsoft Office documents to Simulink.

  1. Run MATLAB® as an administrator.

  2. At the command prompt, enter:

    rmi setup

  3. To register the current MATLAB installation as an ActiveX Automation Server, press Y.

Configure RMI for IBM Rational DOORS Interaction

If you have IBM Rational DOORS installed, you must configure it to communicate with MATLAB.

  1. Run MATLAB as an administrator.

  2. At the command prompt, enter:

    rmi setup

  3. Skip the ActiveX Automation Server setup by pressing N.

    The IBM Rational DOORS-MATLAB Interface setup utility opens.

  4. If the detected path to your IBM Rational DOORS installation is correct, configure the software to communicate with MATLAB by pressing 1.

  5. If MATLAB did not detect your IBM Rational DOORS installation in the previous step, enter the installation folder by pressing 2.

    Note:   You can directly access the IBM Rational DOORS-MATLAB Interface setup utility. At the command prompt, enter:

    rmi setup doors

Configure RMI for IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation Interaction

  1. At the command prompt, enter:

    rmi setup

  2. You do not need to set up the ActiveX Automation Server because it is not required for requirements linking with IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation. Skip this step by pressing N.

  3. If you have IBM Rational DOORS installed, you are prompted to select the installation path to configure for communication with MATLAB. If you are using RMI with IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation only, you do not need to configure IBM Rational DOORS. Skip this step by pressing 3.

  4. Configure RMI for integration with IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation server by pressing Y .

  5. Complete the setup by entering the IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation Server Address and the Port Number in the next prompt.

Install the Selection for Simulink Widget in IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation

Installing the Selection for Simulink widget enables you to propagate selection information from IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation to MATLAB.

In the Windows® File Explorer, navigate to the folder toolbox\slrequirements\slrequirements\resources in your MATLAB installation folder. Copy the dngsllink folder into the extensions subfolder of your IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation installation. The location of this folder depends on your server version.

After copying the dngsllink folder to your server, add the Selection for Simulink widget to the Mini Dashboard in IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation. In the Mini Dashboard, select Add Widget > Add OpenSocial Gadget. Specify the URL to dngsllink.xml that corresponds to the extensions\dngsllink subfolder in your server installation folder.

For example, if you have Liberty server version 6.0.2 installed, the extensions subfolder is located in: JazzTeamServer_6.0.2\server\liberty\servers\clm\dropins\war\extensions. The corresponding URL for adding the widget is: https://JAZZSERVERNAME:9443/extensions/dngsllink/dngsllink.xml.
