Install RTC Reports after Project Creation

Don Slaunwhite (11) | asked Mar 27 '09, 2:18 p.m.

We are using RTC 1.0.1 and when we created one of our projects none of the default reports were installed. (I'm not sure why since every other project has them listed. But at this point it doesn't matter to me why they were not installed, just how to get them installed.)

I have discovered about "updating" previously installed reports and adding "new" reports on this page:

But obviously updating only works for reports that are already there and I don't want to have to add each report manually.

Is there a way to add all the reports to the project instance automatically?

Or what would I look for to see why they are not showing up.

Any help would be appreciated.

There is no way to do a batch add. The reason is deriving the report ids from the file names is not possible.

The reason you did not get the report templates deployed automatically is probably because you are using a process template that does not include those. Which process template did you use to create your project area?

Since we had several complaints about this in the past, I think we need a solution to this usability issue in 2.0. Can you please raise a work item?

I am working with a customer who also had this problem but I am unable to reproduce it.

The created a new project from the web admin using the Agile process. The user who created the project had full admin rights. When I was added to the project, I am able to see all the templates - but he cannot. None of the default reports were setup but I was able to move (unable to copy??) from another sandbox project. I am still unable to get the original project creator to see all the default report templates.

I am creating a work item around this here:

Can you please use the Eclipse client to open the properties page of the report templates and check which team area is associated with the reports?
Ensure that the customer has his team artifacts navigator filter setup to show data for all team areas.
