Traceability Add-in for Microsoft Visual Studio for Team Systems 2010

Patch 24 includes support for the CaliberRM 2008 SP1 Traceabilty Add-in for Microsoft VSTS 2010. This add-in allows you to perform the following tasks from either the CaliberRM standalone Windows client or Microsoft Visual Studio 2010:

Multi-select UDAs published to HP Quality Center

Patch 24 allows publishing of multi-select UDAs from Caliber requirement types to HP Quality Center multi-select rerquirement types.

HP Quality Center 11 Support

Patch 24 includes support for integrating with HP Quality Center 11.

Visual Studio for Team Systems 2010 Work Items

In Patch 23, a new option for VSTS 2010 Work Items appears on the External Traceability tab of a project in the CaliberRM Administrator. To enable this option, you must install the CaliberRM 2008 SP1 Traceability add-in for VSTS 2010, included in Patch 24.

Datamart SQL Server 2008 Support

Patch 21 includes support for using SQL Server 2008 as a Datamart extraction target.

Automatic Linking of HP Quality Center Test Cases to Requirements

Patch 19 includes an enhancement to the Test Wizard that allows you to automatically link test cases generated from CaliberRM requirements to previously-generated requirements in HP Quality Center. To enable this feature, select the Link Test to Requirements check box on the Assign The Test to a Folder page of the Test Wizard. After generating the test cases in HP Quality Center, you can view the linked requirements on the Req. Coverage tab of the Test Plan view.

Set HP Quality Center Requirement Type During Publishing

Patch 19 includes an enhancement that allows you set the Quality Center requirement type during publishing by mapping a CaliberRM user-defined attribute to a Quality Center requirement type. Specific instructions are as follows:

  1. In CaliberRM, create a user-defined attribute called QC Requirement Type, and then create Single Selection List items that correspond to the Quality Center requirement types.
  2. Add the user-defined attribute QC Requirement Type to the requirement type in CaliberRM containing the requirements(s) that you want to publish to Quality Center.
  3. On the User Attributes tab of a selected requirement in CaliberRM, select the desired requirement type from the QC Requirement Type list.
  4. Choose Tools>Publish to Quality Center. The Quality Center Publishing Wizard appears.
  5. Select the requirement(s) to publish.
  6. Add QC Requirement Type as a customized field.
  7. Publish the requirements to Quality Center.

Automatic Linking of HP Quality Center Test Cases to Requirements

Patch 19 includes an enhancement to the Test Wizard that allows you to automatically link test cases generated from CaliberRM requirements to previously-generated requirements in HP Quality Center. To enable this feature, select the Link Test to Requirements check box on the Assign The Test to a Folder page of the Test Wizard. After generating the test cases in HP Quality Center, you can view the linked requirements on the Req. Coverage tab of the Test Plan view.

CaliberRM Server Support for Windows Server 2008 (x86)

Patch 19 provides support for installing and running CaliberRM Server on 32-bit versions of Windows Server 2008 Standard and Enterprise Editions.

CaliberRM Client Support for Windows 7 (x86 and x64) and Internet Explorer 8.0

Patch 17 provides support for running CaliberRM Client on Windows 7 (both x86 and x64 architectures). On a 64-bit system, CaliberRM runs as a 32-bit application. Additionally, support for Internet Explorer 8.0 is provided in Patch 17.

Support for Hierarchy Filter in DocFactory2

Starting from Patch 17, DocFactory2 provides support for filtering by hierarchy number. Similar to DF1, DF2 hierarchy filter takes the form of $FILTER{hierarchy compare_operator value}.

Local Filter ("Column Filter") in Requirement Grid

New menu option "Column Filter" has been added in Requirement Grid to allow further refinement of the requirement selection. Working as local filter on top of the result set returned from global filter, Column Filter allows user to select requirements based on any of the available attributes selected by global filter. For instance, if "Retrieve Hierarchy Numbers" is selected in the Requirement Grid Filter, hierarchy number will be calculated and returned along with the requirements. User can launch "Column Filter" and select requirements based on hierarchy number.

Open Requirement Grid View (.rgv) file

New menu item ("Open RGV File") has been added in CaliberRM win32 Client Main Frame "File" menu. User can invoke previously saved Requirement Grid View (.rgv) to launch Requirement Grid directly.

Sorting Traces in DocFactory

DocFactory has introduced a new command called $sort_traces. This command is primarily use to sort traces within DocFactory. The new command follows the same syntax convention with $sort.

Following identifiers can be passed to $sort_traces as parameters: trace_regtag, trace_name, trace_suspect, trace_teststatus, trace_directimplied, trace_direction, trace_project, trace_type, trace_tag, trace_description, trace_status, trace_priority, trace_version, trace_owner, trace_created_on, and trace_created_by.

Enhanced project administration to prevent moving requirements in the requirement tree

From the framework administrator Project and Group Assignment Tab the administrator can now choose whether a specific group assigned for a particular project has privileges to move requirements in the requirement tree.

New Support for the 3rd Party Integration Tools

HP Quality Center Version 10.0 is supported.

Table Support in the DocFactory

In the previous release, the new DocFactory table only supported the $BEGIN_SECTION/$END_SECTION commands/keywords by using the $BEGIN_ROW/$END_ROW commands within the table. For this patch release, glossary, history, discussions, lists, and traces are being supported inside the table.

This new table support feature can also be applied in case of Multiple Projects or track changes.

Project Level Administration

Project Level Administration defines a new kind of framework administrator called a Project Admin. This new admin would enjoy a subset of the full framework administration privileges that will allow him to exercise finer grain control over administrative tasks at the project level.

Baseline Initialization from the Requirement Grid

This new feature provides an alternative method of initializing Baselines. Not only can Baselines be initialized from the Baseline Maintenance Dialog but it is now possible to do this from the Requirement Grid Dialog.

Filters saved on the Server can be shared as global read-only

Filters saved on the Server can now be set to have global read-only access so as to allow other users to reuse filters. Only the owner of the filter can modify the globally shared filter.

Tracking changes between baselines using Document Factory

This new feature allows tracking changes in requirement descriptions, and/or status, priority, UDAs using DocFactory for Microsoft Word 2003 Pro and above. All changes between the two baselines are tracked in an XML output generated from the Document Factory

Printing Multiple Projects using Document Factory

CaliberRM 2008 allows you to print requirements for more than one CaliberRM project using Document Factory. You can select multiple projects or multiple baselines and combine requirements that span more than one CaliberRM project into a single output.

CaliberRM Client CR 43880 When you create traces from the TeamDefine Simulation to other CaliberRM requirements, the requirement objects along with simulation icon are displayed incorrectly in the Traceability Diagram.
CaliberRM DocFactory CR 43867 The new DocFactory gets an unhandled exception when you go back from Page 2 to Page 1 after clicking 'OK' to the error message box.
CaliberRM DocFactory CR 43865 The new keyword <responsibilities_firstnamelastname> generates an error "String cannot be of zero length. Parameter name: oldValue".

CaliberRM DocFactory CR 43849 When you invoke the Document Factory, the login info is not cached by StarTeam toolbar. The first page is pre-populated with the last logged-in server, userid retrieved from the registry. The password field is also seemingly pre-populated, as indicated by asterisks being displayed. However, the fact is that the password pre-populated is always "admin". It should not display any asterisks in the first place and let the user re-enter the password.
CaliberRM DocFactory CR 43848 Using the $BEGIN_ROW command, when you specify a project and baseline with a blank space after the comma, e.g. $BEGIN_ROW(project01, baseline01), then the new DocFactory will display an error message "Specified project does not contain the specified baseline" and the generation fails.
