Configuring feed settings in the Eclipse client

You can override feed property settings and limits on the Jazz Team Server or an application that is registered with the server by configuring properties on the client.

About this task

You can edit the properties of a feed from either the Team Dashboard view or the Team Artifacts view.

Procedure

  1. Open the Team Artifacts view or the Team Dashboard view.
    • In the Team Artifacts view, complete the following steps.
      1. Expand the Feeds node in the left pane, right-click a feed, and click Properties.
      2. In the Properties dialog box, click the Properties tab. Then, in the right pane, edit any of the property settings and limits that are described in Table 1.
    • In the Team Dashboard view, complete the following steps.
      1. In the Events section that is associated with a feed, right-click and click Edit Feed.
      2. In the Edit Feed dialog box, edit any of the property settings and limits that are described in Table 1.
    Table 1. Feed property setting overrides
    Property Default value Description
    Update feed automatically Enabled When selected, you can set the feed refresh interval in the Update interval in seconds field.
    Update interval in seconds 600 seconds Adjusts the frequency with which the feed is refreshed.
    Note: For optimum server and client performance, avoid setting a feed refresh interval that is greater than 600 seconds. Feed notifications are driven by processing feeds for the most recent events on the server. The feeds run queries against the backend database. If the queries run too frequently, they add load to the database. Feed notifications are primarily intended to encourage collaboration.
    Display color Black Display color of new feed items.
    Reload feed automatically on startup Enabled When selected, the feed is automatically reloaded when you restart the client. Depending on the other feed property settings, previously displayed feed items might be removed.
    Override server configuration Disabled When selected, you can override the feed property settings on the server with the property settings on the client.
    Limit number of items Enabled When selected, you can configure the maximum number of items that the feed can return in the Maximum news items field.
    Maximum news items 1000 items Maximum number of items that the feed can return. Setting this property and the Days to keep news items property helps you keep the Events sections on the Team Dashboard from becoming crowded and difficult to read.
    Important: When a feed is first loaded, the maximum number of items that are returned is not set. In this scenario, the server returns a maximum of 100 items. To enable more than 100 items, in addition to setting the Maximum news items property, you must add the following parameter to the feed URL, save the change, and refresh the feed:
    &maxResults=value

    where value is the maximum number of items to display.

    For example,
    https://jazz.your.company.com:9443/jazz/service/com.company.repository.common.internal.IFeedService?itemType=WorkItem&user={$user}&maxResults=1000
    Limit age of items Disabled When selected, you can configure the number of days to keep feed items in the Days to keep news items field.
    Days to keep news items 0 Number of days to keep feed items. Setting this property and the Maximum news items property helps you keep the Events sections on the Team Dashboard from becoming crowded and difficult to read.
