IBM Doors / Sparx EA integration
« on: April 08, 2021, 10:35:30 pm »
Can EA Sparx communicate/share data with IBM DOORS Next Generation, and IBM DOORS Classic, either directly or through a middleware? We use the former and want to make sure that we can carry out data exchange between the two tools.

I understand there is an MDG link for Doors which is basically an add-on.  The release notes say DOORSŪ 9.6.1 or later.

Its not listed under the free MDGs so suspect there will be some extra cost but couldn't see a price.
Happy to help

As Sunshine points out there is the MDG DOORS add-in, which is now a free download. This targets the desktop version of DOORS 9.6 and allows for import and export of Requirements between EA and DOORS.

Pro Cloud Server can integrate with DOORS NG via the IBM Jazz platform. See:
