Test Plan progress on Rational Insight Dashboard

Renato Mori (10012230) | asked Aug 20 '14, 9:13 p.m.
I know we can follow the the progress of a test plan using the test plan widget on the RQM dashboard.
But is there a way I can have that widget (or some progress bar char like that one) on rational insight?
Here's a example of what i would like to have...

Hi Renato,
There is a dashboard feature in Insight (Cognos Connection).  You may open http://server:port/reporting/servlet/dispatch and there are some pre-defined dashboards.

These dashboards are used for high level perspective, so I don't think there is the one for displaying test plans. But it is flexible, and you can create your own dashboard using Cognos Report Studio etc.

Hi Kenji,
I think I will create my own dashboard using RRDI. You know where in the DW I can get the information that shows the test plan, test case, and test case execution record (and the points of each TCER) so I can create my own reports? It's important to include the test plan information si I can know the progress per TP.
Thanks in advance.

Corey Jacobs commented Aug 26 '14, 6:28 p.m. has a lot of information on where this information is stored. The following areas in the DW are where I usually look
Operational Data Store > Test Plan Area > Test Plan
Operational Data Store > Test Case Area > Test Case
Operational Data Store > Test Case Area > Test Related Test Plans
Operational Data Store > Execution Work Item Area > Execution Work Item
Operational Data Store > Execution Work Item Area > Execution Work Item > Current Result Name or Verdict
Operational Data Store > Execution Result Area > Execution Result

Thanks Corey!
You know how can I filter a plan (in query studio or report studio) by a category value??
I only want those plans that have a particular value in a category that only is used on the test plan artifact.

Hi Renato, in Test Plan Area for category value try Test Plan Area  > Test Plan Related Categories.  The 2 values of interest are Category Term and Category Value.
