User interface

 

 

Description

Currently is in the ELM Jazz platform hard to see the overview of to project and switch between applications, and project components applications. This extension provides DNG users with the ability to view the complete structure of projects without leaving the module in which the user is working. This extension provides users with a structured overview of all projects to which they user has access. It allows the user to dive into application project areas, component flow folders, and down to the module level. Each project can be developed from the project level to the level of project components, streams/baselines/change sets, and folder level to the level of individual modules. This entire overview is displayed to users in a mini dashboard. This entire overview is displayed to users in a mini dashboard.

Problem to solve

Doors Next Generation does not have the same ability to provide users with a quick overview of projects and project components as it was in Doors Classic. Currently, it is difficult for DNG users to get an overview, navigate within projects, and switch between applications, and applications of project components if the user has a large number of projects on the ELM Jazz platform. The extension developed by Softacus allows the user to quickly organize within applications. This extension provides a complete overview of all projects that the user has access to. develop from the project level to the level of project components, streams/baselines/change sets, and folder level to the level of individual modules. This entire report is space-saving - the report is displayed to users in a mini dashboard.

Features

Handle multiple application servers

The extension is capable of handling several application servers (rm, rm1, ccm, qm, gcm) when accessed by a user.

Saving to cache

Open structures are cached so that the customer can focus on the project they are interested in

Jump to Module

The user is able to dive into application project areas, component flow folders, and down to the module level. After clicking on a module, the selected module will open.

Grouping of components

The script reads the information in the description of each component. If the user is sorted into groups, this grouping will also be shown in the user's mini dashboard. This information must be included in the description of the component in the form of, for example, [Group A].

How to use this extension

  1. Add a widget from the catalog by the name Project Explorer (PEX)
  2. After adding the script, a project drop-down menu appears where you can drill down into application project areas, component flow folders, and down to the module level
  3. After clicking on a module, the selected module will open

This extension allows users to compare the current module with modules from other configurations. The script will display changes of sections, attributes, or changed links. Upon generating, you can also click on an artifact which will take you to the artifact in your current configuration.


User interface

   

Description

This extension is intended for very quick comparison of your module against another configuration, usually stream against previous version (baseline).

Problem to solve

This extension allows users to compare the current module with the same module in another other configurations. Default configuration is the last baseline of the current stream. The script will quickly display which artifacts have changed. Blue color means changed, yellow means new artifact and grey with red strike through means deleted artifact.

Features

Show only changes

Per default, the extension show only the changed artifacts, including their Heading parents and siblings. This was done in order to show changes also for very big modules with very few changes. If you want to show the whole module explorer tree, then click on Expand button

Expand Button 

Expand Button (+) allows you to expand the entire module with all changes. Due the very big sizes of sime modules the sctions with no changes are shown but collapsed. This allows user to expand it manually, but there is no need to do that due to no change in the chapter.

Collapse Button

Collapse Button (-) allows you to shown only the parts of the module with changes. You will se also unchanged Parent Heading in order to be able to identify the sections where the changes has been done

Jump to Artifact

The user has the ability to click on any artifact in the CMC Widget , and this will show and highlight the relevant section in the module.

Full Compare

This Button allows you to open DNG native comparison of the configurations. The adavantage is that you can do it with 1 click instead of 8-10 clicks which would be required to get to this comparison. Full compare screen will also allow you to see changed links. CMC widget does copare only textual changes due to the fact that link changes on artifacts do not change the "Modified On" attribute.

Rich Text Direct Compare

The changed Primary text can be compared directly in the widget without initialting "Full Compare". If there afre no changes shown, this means that some other attribute than "Primary Text" was changed in the artifact.

 

Restrictions

  • The script cannot be executed outside the module
  • The links in the module are not color coded in the Extension and are compared only "Full Compare" view
  • The script does not work in changeset (yet)

How to use this extension

  1. Add a widget from the catalog by the name Compare Module Across Configurations (CMC)
  2. Open Module in Doors NG Component
  3. Upon opening, a dropdown will append where you can choose which configuration to compare
  4. After clicking the button, the script will then look for all changes and will print them out

How Comparison Works

Use Cases:

1) User is in a  stream (local or gc) - default comparison is with the last baseline
1) User is in a  baseline (local or gc) - default comparison is with the initial stream

This extension allows users to filter specific comments in artifacts in Modules. You can specify what comments Contains, who is the Author, from when to when the comment was updated, if it's resolved and what's its' priority.


User interface 

  

Description

This extension, developed by Softacus, allows a quick and easy overview of all the comments in the displayed module. This extension allows users to not only display comments within a module as in DNG, but allows users to filter specific comments. The user can filter comments based on the author, from when to when the comment was updated, whether it is resolved and what is its priority. The user can select all options or only some in their various combinations or not select any filter. In case the user does not select any filter, the widget will create a report of all comments that are in the module. This whole solution is space-saving - it is displayed directly in the widget added to your mini dashboard. The created report contains information: ID and title of the artifact.

Problem to solve

The current implementation of DNG only allows filtering of comments with "exists" or "does not exist". Tracking comment attributes based on specific user needs is currently time and labor-intensive in DNG. This extension allows you to filter many more comment attributes to find the commented artifact based on your needs. Softacus has developed an extension that allows users to filter comment attributes. Thanks to this extension, the user has the opportunity to get a quick overview of the attributes of comments based on specific options directly in the widget in the user's mini dashboard.

Features

Selected comments based on selected criteria

You can specify what comments Contains, who is the Author, from when to when the comment was updated, if it's resolved and what's its priority. The script then prints all artifacts whose comments are equal to the query. The script can also query Review Comments, but the query is limited

Filter based on specific link/attribute

You can filter by a specific link, a specific attribute, and if it is any value, or contains any value.

Restrictions

  • The script cannot be executed outside of the module

How to use this extension

  1. Add a widget from the catalog by the name Filter Comments (FCM)
  2. Open Module in Doors NG Component
  3. Make your own filter based on possible parameters
  4. Click on the button "Filter comments"
  5. The extension then prints artifacts into a table
