Coming Soon: R&D Reporter 3.0 – Major Enhancements
R&D Reporter is our real-time reporting tool and high-level comparison tool for ClearCase end-users.
- File-based report (in addition to activities-based reports). This allows you to filter out your reports by filename and know exactly which files have been changed, where and when they were changed.
- A new report format which enables you to save a report directly to a GUI-based format and reopen it at any time without needing to set a query for it. This new format saves time of generating reports and can be shared with anyone who uses R&D Reporter.
- Compare baselines by a predefined naming convention (including regular expressions!) or by promotion levels.
- Use ClearCase attributes to enhance your report details.
- Supporting floating license model
You can use R&D Reporter to integrate ClearCase with ClearQuest, RTC and HP Quality Center. Read a success story on how we helped HP Accelerating R&D processes with GoMidjets R&D Reporter
