Working with data in configurations

If you use configurations (streams and baselines) in the Requirements Management (RM), Quality Management (QM), and Design Management (DM) applications, or if you use global configurations, you can focus on specific configurations when you work with views, search, and impact analysis.
The name of the configuration that you are working in is shown on the toolbar, in the Current Configuration menu. To switch to a different configuration, click this menu, and select a configuration.
Tip: Archived global configurations and components are included in search results, views or impact analysis diagrams. If you want to exclude them, read About archived global configurations and components.

After an application administrator enables configuration management for a project area, teams can work in a parallel, multi-stream environment.

When you install the Global Configuration Management application, team members assigned as configuration leads can add local configurations (streams and baselines) to global configurations.

If both Lifecycle Query Engine, and Lifecycle Query Engine using Configurations are registered as Report Builder data sources, the Current Configuration menu is available in the toolbar, in the top right side of the screen. This menu shows the configuration context that you are working in.
  • If the Current Configuration menu shows All Data, your views, search results, and impact analysis diagrams show artifacts regardless of configurations.
  • If you work in a specific local or global configuration by selecting one from the Current Configuration menu, your views, search results, and impact analysis diagrams show artifacts that pertain to the selected local or global configuration.
Tip: When you work with a local configuration, you can search for specific baselines and streams.
Note: In distributed topologies, where IBM® Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Engineering Insights (ENI) is registered with a different Jazz® Team Server than your lifecycle management applications, the administrator must configure cross-server communication between ENI and the friend applications. By configuring cross-server communication, you ensure that the Current Configuration menu shows all the data from applications that are registered with a remote Jazz Team Server.
