Subscription Level App Catalog

The CA Agile Central App Catalog now includes your subscription level apps, enabling easier adoption, updates, and distribution of those apps. To learn more about creating apps, see CA Agile Central App SDK 2.0.

Subscription Administrators

As a subscription administrator you can:

  • Add an app to the app catalog
  • Choose a name for the app
  • Disable an app for updating or removal
  • Update an app

Add an app to the catalog

Subscription administrators can add their own Custom HTML apps to the App Catalog to be shown alongside CA Agile Central apps. From the Subscription page, click + Add New to add an app:

 

Administrators can edit the following fields:

  • App Name (required) — Shown in the catalog and is the default name for the app.
  • Disabled — Whether the app is available (more information below).
  • Description — Shown in the catalog. Admins can add links, such as where to get help with the app or find more information.
  • Image — Shown in the catalog. If none is provided, the image of two gears is shown in the catalog.
  • Source — The custom HTML code they would add for any apps they already have, build, or find.
  • Timebox filtering — Whether this app respects iteration, release, and milestone filters. If the app respects these filters, the app will be shown in a special category.

Once apps have been added, they display in the list:

Users will then see these apps in the App Catalog in a new category called My Subscription’s Apps:

At any point, a subscription administrator can update the source code for the app and all users will automatically get the updates.

A subscription administrator can also disable an app in case there is a bug with the app or the app is no longer supported. If disabled, a disabled message is displayed in the app and it no longer displays in the catalog.

 

Delete or Revise an App

A subscription administrator can delete an app only if it is not added to any pages. The Apps page will show how many pages have the app, but not which pages. When an app is updated, the change will show in the revision history for the subscription:
