Filtering artifacts for links to other applications

When viewing artifacts, collections, and modules in the Artifacts, Collections, or Modules pages, you can filter artifacts that are linked to other applications integrated in the IBM® Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM).

Before you begin

Your project must be configured for ELM integration and you must have links to artifacts in other applications.

About this task

You can filter and display columns for the following link types:
  • Implemented By, Tracked By, or Affected By links to development artifacts in the Change and Configuration Management application.
  • Validated By links to test artifacts in the Quality Management application.
  • References and Referenced by links to requirement artifacts in any other Requirements Management application.

You can display columns, but you cannot filter by the link types for the Rhapsody Model Manager application.

Procedure

  1. Open the Artifacts, Collections, or Modules page.
  2. Click the Add filter icon Add filter icon.
    • To filter artifacts based on their links to other ELM applications, in the New Filter window, select Link type from the Choose an attribute column.
      1. In the Choose values column select the value that corresponds to the lifecycle application that you want to filter by and click Add. See Link Types for the list of all the link types associated to ELM applications.
      2. To specify additional filters to the Link type attribute, click the Edit icon and add conditions.

        Edit filter and add conditions example

        In this example, the filter will return all artifacts that have an Affected by link to an artifact of type Heading .

    • To filter artifacts based on the status of the linked test and development items. In the New Filter window, select Limit by lifecycle status attribute. From the Choose an attribute column, select:
      • None to display artifacts with no linked work items.
      • Open or Resolved to display linked work items with those statuses.
      • All Resolved to display requirement artifacts where all associated work items are resolved.
      • Passed, Failed, Unattempted to display all test items with those statuses.
      • All Passed to display requirement artifacts where all associated test items have passed.
      • All to display all development or test items
  3. To display artifacts based on their links to ELM applications, click configure page settings icon Configure page settings > Configure columns to display. Select the link type that corresponds to the lifecycle application that you want to filter by and click Add. For example, select any one of the following link type options:
    • Implemented By, Tracked By, or Affected By to display associations with development artifacts.
    • Validated By to display associations with test artifacts.
    • References and Referenced by to display associations with requirement artifacts.
    • Derives Architecture From Element, Refined By Architecture Element, Satisfied By Architecture Element, and Traced By Architecture Element to display associations with design artifacts.
    1. To organize the column display use the Move Up and Move Down options.
    2. Use the Format option to customize the column display. You can select attributes of the artifacts and wrap or trim the link text display.
  4. To remove the filters applied, click the Clear all filters icon .
