Missing Resource Tab in a Plan of a SCRUM based project


Guido Schneider (3.4k1486115) | asked Dec 27 '11, 12:04 p.m.
In RTC 3.0 there is often the term of a HYBRID project.

Because there is no out-of-the-box Hybrid template available, it looks like everybody must customize the missing parts into his own process template.

I would like to see the Resource Tab from a Formal Plan template also in a Scrum plan template. Is there a documentation how to configure this?

You need to copy some stuff from the Formal templates xml to ad this feature in a scrum project - because the idea of scrum is a bit different than that of traditional timeregistration of formal projects. see section 4 in this link:

Thanks Kim,

I know in SCRUM, there we don't deal with ressource allocation and timesheets and such silly stuff. But in large companies, you seldom can run pure Scrum. You always end in a hybrid.

This section in the documentation is good and shows me how to add time recording for a work item and other nice stuff like risk management, which I need in my Hybrid project template.

But it does not answer how I can add the Resource Tab of a Plan into the Scrum template.

Of course I can search in the XML (what I'm doing) but if you have an idea or a link, to showing also how to add this, it would be great.

Guido

It probably will be easier to start with the Formal Planning template,
and make it more Scrum-like, than starting with the Scrum template and
making it more Formal. Have you tried that approach?

Cheers,
Geoff

In a similar post Migrating from Scrum to Formal Project Management template, I wrote:
I copy-pasted the following xml snippet to the Process Configuration Source of an OpenUP-based Project Area, and this did add the Resources tab and functionality to the Plans.
Not sure however how 'supported' this is.
Have you tried this and did you notice any 'drawback' ?

(NOTE THIS IS NOT FORMALLY DOCUMENTED/SUPPORTED)
Add this part:
<configuration-data xmlns="http://com.ibm.team.apt.configuration/planEditorTabs" id="com.ibm.team.apt.configuration.planEditorTabs">
<staticTab
id="com.ibm.team.tpt.allocation.web.ui.allocation"
implementation="com.ibm.team.tpt.web.ui.allocation.internal.tab.AllocationTab"
priority="40"
name="Resources">
<parameters>
<parameter key="uaKey" value="com.ibm.team.apt.web.ui.tab_plan_resource_web"/>
</parameters>
</staticTab>
</configuration-data>

After this part:
<configuration-data xmlns="http://com.ibm.team.apt/complexityAttribute" id="com.ibm.team.apt.configuration.attributes">...
</configuration-data>

Hello,
does this work on all templates? I tried adding the snippet code into our customized template. But teh resources tab is not available. What could be the problem?

Thanks.

I just added the same snippet to a SCRUM-based Project Area (vs. OpenUP earlier), and it worked too (i.e. added that Resource tab to the Plans)

This will not work in a SaFe process template
