Adaptable and Comprehensive Lifecycle Process Control
The ability to customize any process schema in IBM ClearQuest allows organizations to define the workflows for every object used during the lifecycle. Process flows can be adapted for bug and issue tracking, code and quality reviews, requirement definition, and team collaboration, as well as testing and release approvals.
IBM ClearQuest Components
The IBM ClearQuest solution provides many customizable options for implementation within any organization. The software handles different types of objects according to the associated definition and information contained in them.
The IBM ClearQuest Components are:
- Fields – Data fields associated with objects.
- Hooks – Arbitrary pieces of code that execute once an event triggers.
- Record Types – Stateless or State-based objects that change according to the process execution.
- Schemas – An encapsulated workflow that includes information on states, actions, and data structures that trigger the associated hooks.
- Schema Repository – The database that manages schemas (process workflow) for the entire development process.
- Test and User Database – A test database for administrators to test changes and a user database that tracks all user data entries and queries (also considered the production database).
These components ensure that IBM ClearQuest is highly customizable, exactly configurable, and ultimately suited for any type of software development implementation.
IBM ClearQuest Designer
For quick and easy customization, IBM ClearQuest Designer allows administrators to use drag and drop operations for laying out record types, fields, lists, and hooks. Once admins are satisfied, new processes and the associated object transitions go through testing before deploying the changes to the production environment.
