Changing the frequency of link index updates
The Link Index Provider (LDX) application builds a link index that stores cross-application links between artifacts. You can change how often the index is updated so that team members see the links that they expect without a delay, or to affect system performance.
Before you begin
- Ensure that you understand how links between artifacts in different applications are managed
after you activate and enable configuration management capabilities in at least one Requirements Management (RM) or
Quality Management (QM) project area.
For details about link ownership and management, and which applications contribute to the link index, see Links across project areas after enabling configuration management.
About this task
- When you enable configuration management in at least one RM or QM project area
- When you install the Global Configuration Management (GCM) application
By default, this application polls its data sources every 60 seconds to refresh the link index. The data sources correspond to in IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) applications that own links between artifacts. You might refresh the index more often so that team members see the links that they expect without a delay. You might refresh it less often to if the current setting is reducing system performance.
Go to the Link Index Provider application:
- Click Manage data sources, and in the Data Source column, click a data source name.
Change the Refresh Rate, and click Save.
Typically, you set the same rate for all the data sources.Tip: To update the index immediately instead of waiting for the refresh rate to elapse, click Force Update.
