 Hello,

I want to create custom reports displaying modules and its relations on RRDI. I try to get information about custom reports but I think there is not more document.We are new on RRC & RRDI. Could you also share links about RRDI and custom reports? As you know, we will need reports displaying whole lifecycle (test - test cases, workitems, owner, requirements...)

Thanks.

Hello Eray and Mustafa,

to create a simple report to show Modules and their relations you can try this:

Launch query studio and add the following fields
  • Operational Data Store > Requirement Area > Requirement Collection > Reference ID (labeled Coll. ID)
  • Operational Data Store > Requirement Area > Requirement Collection > Name (labeled Coll. Name)
This will give you a list of the modules and collections (they are grouped together)



If you add the following fields you will get the requirements contained in each module/collection
  • Operational Data Store > Requirement Area > Requirement Collection Related Requirements > Reference ID (labeled Req. ID)
  • Operational Data Store > Requirement Area > Requirement Collection Related Requirements > Name (labeled Req. Name)
For better visualization select the columns for the Collections and click the Group icon in the toolbar



Otherwise if instead you add the following fields you will get the tesp plans associated to each module/collection
  • Operational Data Store > Requirement Area > Requirement Collection Related Test Plans > Reference ID (labeled TP ID)
  • Operational Data Store > Requirement Area > Requirement Collection Related Test Plans > Reference ID (labeled TP Name)

Best Regards,

Francesco Chiossi

Hi Francesco,
The examples are useful for us. In addition to that, I want to combine module & requirements & links (Workitems,test plans...). The list should be contain "Col Id, Col Name, Req Id , Req. Name, Link Type, Link Name"
for example
Link type : tracked/ implemented...
Link Name : Workitem Description., ..

I created reports succesffully which contain columns as "col Id, Col Name, req id , req. name ".

According to you, RRDI is right way for that kind of reports ? Should we use RRDG (Document Generation) or Rational Publish Engine?
Because we will have had a lot of reports which can show req / req details / test case / test plans / workitems / modules. together.

Thanks

Hello Eray,

both RRDI and RPE can provide the type of reports you are looking for. (Note: RRDG can just run the report templates that you create in RPE)
RRDI is more suited to generating reports from the WebUI or to be imported in CLM or displayed in dashboards.
RPE is more for document generation (Word, Excel, PDF, etc...).

If you want to add links to Work Items in a requirement you have to look into the
  • Operational Data Store > Requirement Area > Requirement Related Requests
for link to Test Plans
  • Operational Data Store > Requirement Area > Requirement Related Test Plans

Best Regards,

Francesco Chiossi
