Jama Relationships Modification

    Hello!

    I am hoping someone can tell me if there is a way to undo a bulk import in Jama, or if there is a way to reset the relationships of items from a bulk import.

    Recently someone on our team used the Jama relationship custom importer to add upstream/downstream relationships to some requirements. Unfortunately, she got misaligned at some point on the import spreadsheet so about half the relationships are wrong. Can I easily remove all relationships in the project so we can do a fresh import?

    If not, do you have any other suggestions beyond manually modifying each relationship?

    Thank you,

    Hi Ben:

    You can modify each relationship individually or you could use the same Jama relationship plug-in to reverse engineer the problem. Either way, this is a bit of a "manual" job, unfortunately.

    Hi Chloe,

    Just out of my own curiosity could you elaborate more on using the plug-in to reverse engineer the problem?  Can it be used to remove relationships?

    Thanks,

    Hi Alex

    It would basically let you use Excel to enter the upstream and downstream Item IDs into two columns within a CSV file and then import that to create those relationships as needed. You can learn more about this option
     here. Hope this helps clarify the plugin a bit more, let us know if you need anymore info.

    Thanks, Godiva.  I've used the plug-in a handful of times to create relationships in bulk but I just wasn't sure what Chloe meant in using the plug-in to "reverse engineer" the problem that Ben described.  In the end I'm guessing they'd have to use the plug-in again to create the correct relationships but are stuck manually removing the incorrect relationships.
