Automatic updates for QualityCentral reports

Post by Team » Mon, 26 Jun 2006 10:05:20


We are getting ready to turn automatic updates on for QualityCentral
from "RAID", our internal bug tracking system. If you get update
notifications for QC, please read this notice

Full synchronization for QualityCentral reports

A roll out of the bidirectional replication between Quality Central
(QC) and "RAID" (Borland's Internal Bug Tracking System) is planned for
Tuesday June 27st at 2:00 pm EDT.

This system will replicate data from RAID to QC and back. This means
when a bug report that is linked between QC and RAID is closed in RAID,
the QC instance of the report will be automatically updated within an
hour. Also, if a report in QC that is linked to RAID its status changed
(open to closed or closed to open) the RAID instance of the report will
be automatically updated as well.

We intend to have these bidirectional updates running from now on. The
status of reports will be updated every hour. This will eliminate the
lag time between the status of a report in QC and the same report in
RAID. This also means that the status of a report in QC may reflect
changes that are not currently available in a public release, since
reports are linked directly to the internal system used by our R&D and
QA teams. In the near future, we will update the QC clients to make the
availability status of a reported fix more obvious.

The first thing to be done on Tuesday is to sync up the RAID and QC
databases. We estimate more than 10,000 changes will be made to the QC
database. It is STRONGLY suggested that anyone who is using QC Area
Email Notifications (digest or regular) unsubscribe from them so you
don't get an enormous number of emails in your in-box. Once the initial
sync up is done, it will be safe to subscribe back to the area
notifications. There will be a posting in
borland.public.bdn.qualitycentral when it is done.

Schedule

The roll schedule is as follows:

Tuesday 2:00 pm sync QC to Raid
Wednesday 2:00 pm sync Raid to QC
Sunday, turn on the replicator to run hourly

Looks like some glitches along the way: e.g QC 7324 (native 64-bit compiler)
has become "closed", resolution "inactive". Should we be worried?

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



I think there are some resolutions in RAID that aren't in QC such as
"Inactive" which sets the status to closed.

Give me a few more days to play with it....

some of the resolutions weren't moved because I have to update the raid
side first so as not to walk over anything...

check in a couple of days.

That must have been intentional to stir up the *** theorists and
HodgesHaters in Delphi-non-tech... like there isn't enough going on there
already! <g,d,&r>
