Dragging architecture elements from IBM Rhapsody Model Manager

This page is aimed to IBM Rhapsody Model Manager (RMM) users to let them know which elements can be drag/copied and drop/paste into the OSLC Connect for Jira Dropping dialog for linking, as well particularities that application have using this dialog.

In RMM, all architecture elements being a link can be dragged and dropped into the Dropping dialog, common places are:

None of above views support multiple selection, so drag and drop of architecture elements must be done one by one.

Whenever the Diagram Breadcrumbs are visible, next to linkable elements there is a link icon that opens the Copy Link dialog when pressed. This can be used to copy the architecture element URL into the clipboard and will require the Copy and Paste Mode on the Dropping dialog or use Ctrl + V.

Global Configurations Compatibility

If Jira issue is using a Global Configuration, then dropped/pasted elements must be dragged/copied from a view using the same Global Configuration to be accepted, otherwise they will be rejected unless (this is the exception to the rule) they are valid (exist) on the configuration used by Jira. This exception allows linking in following scenario:

As mentioned on the Using the Dropping dialog topic, above scenario will create a warning in the Dropping dialog to let the user know dropped/pasted elements are being accepted, even if their configuration does not match with the one on Jira, because this latter takes precedence and they are still valid there... so linking is possible.

All comments on this subtopic are valid for RMM projects which are Configuration-Management enabled. Architecture elements of RMM projects begin Configuration-Management disabled can only be dropped/pasted on Jira issues not associated to a Global Configuration or they will be rejected.
