GA Announcement – CA Clarity PPM 14.2 Documentation

  • 1.  GA Announcement – CA Clarity PPM 14.2 Documentation

    Posted 03-20-2015 10:34 AM

    On behalf of the CA Clarity™ PPM Information Services team at CA Technologies, we are pleased to announce that the technical information products (bookshelves) for the new CA Clarity™ PPM Release 14.2 are available. The product documentation has been updated to incorporate release changes, has been improved based on customer feedback, and helps you find information faster.

     

    Important! The bookshelves will not be updated after this release. Find the latest CA Clarity PPM product documentation on wiki.ca.com.  The CA Clarity PPM DocOps Platform will be available soon. Look out for an announcement!

     

    • VersionOne Documentation. You can find the VersionOne integration documentation in the Installation Guide.
    • Advanced Reporting. A new CA Clarity PPM page, CA PPM Advanced Reporting and Database Schema Index, is added to CA Support Online. The link for the page is located under Popular Links on the CA PPM Product Page.

      This page contains links for technical information about CA Clarity PPM, Data Warehouse, Jaspersoft, and PMO Accelerator. To see the page, click the following link: 

    CA PPM Advanced Reporting and Database Schema Index.

    Note: You must be logged in to see the information that the links present.

    The new page contains the following documentation links:

      • CA Clarity PPM Database Schema

    Note: In the previous releases, this information was included in the Technical Reference Guide. Now a link to the support site has been included where the information was previously.

      • Data Warehouse Database Schema
      • Data Warehouse ERD Diagram
      • PMO Accelerator for Jaspersoft Advanced Reporting
      • Advanced Reporting Domain Field Descriptions
      • PMO Accelerator Overview Guides
    • Studio Developer Guide. The last step for creating a custom object was updated to reflect your ability to edit the default menu link to the list page. Previous documentation suggested only that you create a new menu link to the custom object list page. A sample screen image was added to demonstrate the appearance of chart portlet data that is grouped by column or function.
      • Prerequisites for content packages were updated to include the required Document Management System (DMS). As an administrator, install and configure the DMS before using content package JAR files in Studio.
    • Financial Management User Guide. The equations and descriptions in the Financial Metrics Used for Planning topic were reviewed and improved.
    • Resource Management User Guide. The calculation for the default allocation percentage has been improved. Although it does not directly change the steps to perform staffing tasks, resource managers can benefit from more accurate results. See Resource Average Allocation Percentage in this guide
    • Access Rights Reference Guide. To help improve how you find content, all access rights are now only documented in the Access Rights Reference Guide.

    Is there a separate bookshelf for 14.2 On Demand?

    Hi Eric, great question and yes - there is a separate bookshelf for 14.2 On Demand. It is not yet available, we are waiting for the 14.2 On Demand Service Availability (SA) Date to make that documentation available. Look out for an announcement about this in April.

     

    Thanks!

    OK.  Thanks.  We are planning to move to 14.2 On Demand ASAP because we are on 13.3 and are still in the implementation process with Rego and would prefer to do the upgrade now, before we go live with any functionality under 13.3, that way we begin with the most current version.  Particularly for the Jaspersoft reporting improvements.  Does this mean that the On Demand will not be available until April?  If so, do you have a timeframe, i.e., early, mid, late?

     

    thanks.

    Hi Eric,

     

    The targeted SA date for PPM SaaS v14.2 is April 10th.  Support will start accepting issues the week of April 6th to begin the scheduling process. If there are any delays based on our final readiness testing I will be sure to update you here.

     

    Thanks,

    I am trying to access the Advanced Reporting Product guide (logged in as well) but the FTP says "Access denied". Anyone else having trouble getting to the documentation?

    I can get there OK (and download the FTP hosted files)  ;  link ; CA PPM Advanced Reporting and Database Schema Index - CA Technologies

    Thanks David - works for me now as well. Although the PMO accelerator for Advanced reporting guide seems to be a place-holder document for now.

    Hi Glen,

     

    The PMO Accelerator for Jaspersoft Advanced Reporting Product Guide is currently being prepared.  We anticipate that this guide should be available by middle to late April.  Please check back then.  Thanks for your interest!

    Are you saying that your ID has ftp access and you can down load those docs?

    I'm logged into Support online with an ID which has access among other things to product downloads, but that is not accepted for the ftp login.

    Hi Martti,

     

    You should not need to provide any other login besides your Support login, which you said you already entered. Can you please send me the message you are receiving when you click the link to go to the CA PPM Advanced Reporting and Database Schema Index?  I will follow up with our web/FTP support folks to figure out the issue. In the meantime, can you also just try to access the page in a bit and let me know what happens?

     

    Thank you,

    Tina Mastrobuono

    The first time used Firefox 36.0.4 and did not get to that page at all.

    The tried with chrome and got asked for the ftp credentials.

    After seeing your post tried FF again. No problem getting the docs that are available.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Martti,

     

    Glad you were able to get to the documents. I also appreciate the information you sent about the steps you took.  I am following up with our Support to figure out what might have happened.

     

    Thank you,

    Tina

    Thank you Tina_Mastrobuono for coordinating with our global IT team to fix the ftp issue. It worked in my testing this morning.
