Change and configuration management BIRT report descriptions

The change and configuration management application includes BIRT-based report resources that are designed to provide information on change management, SCM, builds, and agile planning. You can customize them using BIRT.

Dashboard versions of reports

Some of the reports have dashboard versions, labeled "Micro" (Table 2), that are optimized for display on dashboards, given that screen real estate is limited. These micro reports are substituted for the parent reports when you add the report widget from the Change and Configuration Management category to your dashboard.

How reports are used in projects

If you use an existing process template (e.g. Scrum or Open Up) to create a new project area, many of the BIRT-based report resources are automatically deployed to the new project areas created with the process templates. If you are creating a unique process template, or if you want to add templates to your project area that were not automatically included, you can us any of the templates that are included with your installation.

Each report resource has a unique report ID, which is referenced from other interface elements such as report widgets in the dashboard and the Charts page in the Agile Planning editor. If the IDs referenced in the report widgets cannot be found, it is not possible to drill down. The BIRT-based report resource files can be found on the file system with the client installation, in the com.ibm.team.examples.reports.common folder. If you use the IBM® Installation Manager to install the client, this folder is located in the Installation Manager shared files directory.

Available BIRT-based reports resources

The BIRT-based reports are interactive reports and include graphical elements that you can click to reveal additional data.

Note:
  • When you preview reports in the BIRT designer, the number of rows displayed is limited to 1,000. To see the complete list, you must deploy the report to the server.
  • If you want to view report data that is outside of a specific team area or iteration, those reports that include the parameters, Team Area and Iteration, must be modified. Clear My Team Areas or Current Iteration, respectively, to include all data.
Note: To use updated report resources after you upgrade IBM Engineering Workflow Management, you must deploy the report resources to your existing projects. For more information, see Deploying new report resources.
Important: If you change the work item category mapping after work items are created, these work items do not display correctly in reports. The issue occurs because the Team Area field is a computed field rather than a field where you enter or select a value. There is no time-stamp entry in the work item history for the category mapping change. To work around the issue, create a query that selects all of the work items that were created under the original category mapping. Then, perform a bulk edit to update the work items so that the work items are saved and the history shows an updated time stamp. When you perform the bulk edit, you might decide to change the Filed Against field to match the category that the team area is now mapped to. Or, if you are satisfied with the new category and team area mapping, you can make a minor change such as adding a comment or changing a tag.
