How do I create a JRS report showing more than one link type


Thomas Stephens (1731816) | asked Mar 01 '16, 2:47 p.m.

I want to show more than one link from the same starting item.

Examples: Showing test case and RM artifacts linked to one work item.

Showing work item and test cases linked to each RM artifact.

Show RM linked from one parent artifact type, and to WI and TC.

Current JRS seems to be only linear: link from a to b to c. I need a to b, a to c and a to d on the same report line.

Is this possible yet?

Hello,
this is -afaik- currently only possible using the advanced query builder and directly writing SPARQL or SQL queries.

in 6.0.2 M3 you can find new feature that allows reporting multiple link types if the target type has the same Type:

And there is a not yet implemented story demanding what you asked for:

 Hello, 

Yes the story 382788 is on our radar as something to prioritize.  We did make some progress on that in 6.0.2 to support multiple relationships between the same source and target:  376023: Support multiple relationships from root type using Report Builder UI (branched traceability) - Part I (same source and target)

The next step is to support multiple relationships between different sources and target which is the work item mentioned by Thomas: 376023: Support multiple relationships from root type using Report Builder UI (branched traceability) - Part I (same source and target)

In the meantime you can reference this article which has a section on how you can accommodate the multiple relationship traceability using the advanced SQL: https://jazz.net/library/article/1470

-Steve
