Intelligent Table View

Intelligent Table View is for displaying upstream and/or downstream references of the Tracker Items.

Intelligent Table View is only available from codeBeamer 9.3.0.


Configuration

To be able to set Intelligent Table View configuration you have to save first a public or private Tracker View. Once you save a View, the Intelligent Table View Configuration label will be active below the Tracker View selector of the Filter Widget.

Click on the label and the configuration overlay will open.


Rendering Methods

  • Disabled (Use Basic Table View): the default Table View, it is useful to disable the Intelligent Table View display.
  • Traceability Tree View: the upstream/downstream references of the items will display next to the items in separate columns (similar what you see on Traceability Browser)
  • Hierarchical Table View: the upstream/downstream references of the items will display under the items with indents in a tree kind structure

Level Settings

Initial Level

The Initial Level row contains the current Tracker, this cannot be modified. You can see also the fields of the current Tracker View in the next row, you can remove, move and also add fields.

Further Levels

Click on + Add button of the further levels and you are able to select which kind of references you would like to display. You can select specific trackers of the current project, Tracker Types and custom trackers of other projects.

Once you selected an element, two new rows appears:

  • you can specify the direction of the references (Upstream and/or Downstream)
  • and you can set the fields which you want to display in the current level (there are some preselected fields) - fields can be moved, removed and also you are able to add other fields. If you selected specific tracker(s), you can select also custom fields too.

You can set also futher levels by adding Trackers / Tracker Types and then set the direction of references and the fields.


In this example you can display the upstream traceability of the Task items: on the first level you will see the User Strory and Requirement items connected by Task items' Subject field. Then you will see the Epic upstream references of the User Story and Requirement items. Some fields are added into each level.


Click on Save to store the configuration. The Intelligent Table View Configuration is stored for tthe Tracker View.

Traceability Tree View

This rendering method displays the items just like on Traceability Browser - the upstream/downstream references will be displayed next to the items in one row. The table header shows the Levels and the set Fields. Between the levels the arrows shows the direction of the item reference. We suggest to use this rendering method with not so much fields of each levels, unless you have to scroll horizontally to see the whole table.

The context menus of the table header contains Move column functionalities (within the level) and you can remove or add also more fields to each level. Please note, that if you change colum order or add/remove a field, you have to Save the view to store the modifications.

You can use in-place editing of each items by double clicking on a field value.

Hierarchical Table View

This rendering method shows the upstream/downstream references below each items in a tree kind structure. The advantage of this rendering method, that you can add more fields to each level and the result is still visible without horizontally scrolling.

The context menus of the table header contains Move column functionalities (within the level) and you can remove or add also more fields to each level. Please note, that if you change colum order or add/remove a field, you have to Save the view to store the modifications.

You can use in-place editing of each items by double clicking on a field value.


Restrictions

Using Intelligent Table View there are some restrictions compared to default table view:

  • you cannot display child items of an item
  • items are not selectable, so you cannot perform actions where you need to select items (Copy, Move, Mass Edit, Export selection, etc.)
  • export functionality is limited to simple export (no Round-trip export), you can use only the existing Traceability Browser export functionalities (no additional columns can be exported)
  • resizable column is not supported
  • Group by is not supported
  • Drag&Drop actions of table header are not supported
