Problem:

How do I set the default values for the 3 check boxes in the Requirement Grid?

Resolution:

To set the default check box options (Hierarchy, Last ModifiedInfo, DescriptionField) for the requirement grid, navigate to the following location within the registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\CaliberRM\ReqList

The following DWORD keys will be visible:

HierarchyNumbering
LastModifiedInfo
DescriptionField

You can modify each of these values with:

Decimal 0 (option is off by default)

Decimal 1 (option is on by default)

Setting these default options are useful for Administrators who install/update CaliberRM Clients using remote admin software as it allows them to set these options for all their users which will improve the performance of the requirement grid if they turn some of these options off. The reason for this is that, for example the Description checkbox when enabled forces the requirement grid to return all requirement descriptions which is an additional overhead and thus may slow down the response times of the grid in returning the requested list.




This article contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
