Exploring design options

About this task

Al responds to the inquiry that Bob created.


  1. Go to https://clm.jkebanking.net:9443/ccm/web/projects/JKE Banking (Change Management)
  2. Log on by typing al in the User ID and al in Password.
  3. From the project dashboard, under the Work Item Queries widget, click the My current work. Work items assigned to Al are displayed.

    1. Open Validate Adherence to Corporate Standard on User Lockout.
    2. In the Status field, select Start Working.
    3. Click Save.
    4. Click the Links tab. Under the Implements Requirements section, hover the mouse over User Authentication Lockout to review its content.
    5. Under the Elaborated by Architecture Element, open the Login Unsuccessful design resource.
  5. Review all of the comments and questions on the Login Unsuccessful sequence diagram.
    1. In the Comments view, click each comment to see if a related drawing has been added to the diagram.
    2. In the Comments view, respond to Bob's comment by typing Capability for user lockout is in place but the configuration parameter for number of tries needs to be changed. Click Save.
  6. Regarding the User Authentication Lockout work item, Al can create a work item for the system configuration team. He can also refine and import the model to the Design Management server to share the model with all stakeholders, and he can change the state of his work item to indicate that it is complete. For briefness, we stop Al's steps on User Lockout here.
  7. From the Home Menu, click the JKE Banking (Change Management) project under Change and Configuration Management. List Al's tasks using the My current work query on the dashboard.

  9. From the Home Menu, select the JKE Banking (Design Management) project under Design Management to return to the design management dashboard.
  10. As the solution architect, analyze how the service works. This information is useful to scope the sprint. By creating a design document to describe how the service works, you can help validate the requirements and ensure that a reasonable solution exists that can be scoped for the sprint. In this scenario, the diagram is provided for you to review.
    1. From the Home Menu, select the JKE Banking (Design Management) project under Design Management.
    2. From the Designs menu, select Document under Create Design Resource and add the following attributes: Title: Design Document - Allocate Dividend Service; Body: We will leverage a RESTful architecture that we have already implemented for another service.
