ALM 12 Cross Project reporting
just have a question regarding cross project reporting.
Is it posible to generate reports out of different repositories in different domains?
Currently, my projects are spread over three different domains and I would like to have a report out of all together.
Strange... in the ALM Excel Plugin, th option to att other projects is grayed out (see screenshot).
any help on this ? Thanks in advance. Thomas
It is definitely possible to generate reports from data in various projects even if in different domains.
However, the following conditions should be met:
- you should use ALM edition, not QC Enterprise or Community
- your user should have access to each of the projects with enough permissions to extract data
- your BV should be exactly the same in each of the projects
i.e. if you use out-of-the-box BVs then they are the same accross all projects but if you created your own, then please make sure to replicate it in each and every project. The best approach is to have BV defined in template project and then it becomes available in each linked project automatically
In the screenshot it is clear that only current project selected, if you uncheck it, you will be able to choose any other project that meets the requirements above.
thanks for reply.
actually, I can not uncheck the checkbox because it's greyed out.
I have for one project project Admin rights for the others viewer rights. I can create for all of the repositories indiviual reports.
Are you using OOTB BVs?
When you say, you are able to generate reports, are you using the BV in each projects?
You have to use the same user to access all projects.
And of course, have ALM edition of 12.20.
I *think* that you cannot do cross project reports because you are admin in only one project. Members of the standard Viewer group are not allowed to generate cross-project reports or BV's.
