Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence 5.0.2 New & Noteworthy

New in Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence 5.0.2

Jazz Reporting Service

  • Now it is easier to create reports for a particular work item type. From the initial artifact selection phase of report creation you can select the type of work item - for example defect or story and continue on from there.
  • For traceability reports that span from one artifact type to another, we now display the table in a more readable format. You can trace how an artifact relates to another artifact though the table spanning capability which eliminates duplicate entries underneath a column entry.
  • When creating a report it is now possible to see a report preview anytime during the creation process. The preview is placed conveniently at the top and can be manually refreshed during the data gathering phase or will be automatically updated during the format results phase. Additionally you can at anytime run the full report and see the results as it would appear in the dashboard widget.
  • The LQE data source support has improved though normalization of terminology with other data sources (Data Warehouse) along with other changes in the Rational Team Concert and Rational Quality Manager domains to make the overall experience better.

Cognos Business Intelligence

The Cognos Business Intelligence included in Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence 5.0 releases was based on Cognos version 10.2.1 fixpack 2. Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence 5.0.2 is now based on Cognos version 10.2.1 fixpack 2 interim fix 6.

Data dictionary documentation improvements

Data dictionaries help show how elements in the data model and in the REST API map to artifacts in CLM. The data dictionaries are improved with the following enhancements:

  • Data dictionaries are now split into one artifact table per page (for example Iteration in Rational Team Concert) instead of one long page which was difficult to navigate.
  • Search field for each table with typeahead capability
  • Fixed row and column headings in each table to minimize scrolling
  • Each artifact type listed in the help table of contents
  • Summary page of what's changed in the data dictionaries from one release to the next
