Track Releases

Print this topicEmail this topic

You can track your releases in several ways:

Release metrics

The Release Metrics page summarizes work items that directly impact your progress toward achieving your milestones. Use this information to help you plan possible future resource needs, identify trends, determine software quality, and help predict velocity.

View the big picture of your work items—categorized by iterations—and assess your progress by viewing such iteration statistics as the:

  • Number of work items accepted
  • Total number of work items scheduled
  • Total amount of units available per iteration (planned velocity)
  • Amount of accepted units of all scheduled work items per iteration
  • Percentage of accepted units of all scheduled work items (accepted and divided by plan estimate) per iteration
  • Remaining amount of work to be completed (represented as total of remaining to do units for all scheduled work items per iteration)
  • Number of test cases that have passed test execution
  • Total number of test cases that have been executed
  • Number of existing defects in an open state
  • Total number of defects logged
  • Totals for individual iterations are displayed under the respective column headings on each iteration row

Using the Release Metrics page, you can:

  • Select a release from the drop-down list. You can also scroll through all existing releases using the previous and next arrows on either side of the release drop-down box. The state of the selected release is displayed adjacent to the release drop-down box.
  • Click any iteration listed in the summary page to view the Iteration detail page.
  • Sort iterations in ascending or descending order.
  • Click Actions, then Edit Release to edit the selected release.

Release defect status

Use the Release Defect Status page to assess all work items scheduled for the selected release and any related active defects and defect suites. Defects are considered active if they are in the open, or fixed state (non-closed). The Release Defects Status page makes it easy to assess and locate the total number of active defects based on priority and severity as you move toward completing releases.

When using a project hierarchy, this page reflects any view scoping settings that you have indicated in the project drop-down. All charts and columns display the cumulative totals for all projects that have the same release name and end date.

Select a release from the drop-down list, or scroll through all listed releases by clicking the previous and next arrows adjacent to the drop-down list. Expand the scheduled items to display all active defects associated to a work item in a hierarchical view.

This page provides a colored release indicator box with critical release information. Click anywhere on the mini burndown chart to display the full-sized Release Burndown chart.

Release task status

Use the Release Task Status page to assess work items and their related tasks scheduled for the selected release. Select a release from the drop-down list, or scroll through all listed releases by clicking the previous and next arrows adjacent to the drop-down list.

If you are using a project hierarchy, this page reflects any view scoping settings that you have indicated in the project drop-down. All charts and columns display the cumulative totals for all projects that have the same release name and end date.

Release test case status

Use the Release Test Case Status page to assess work items and their related test cases scheduled for the selected release. Select a release from the drop-down list, or scroll through all listed releases by clicking the previous and next arrows adjacent to the drop-down list.

When using a project hierarchy, this page reflects any view scoping settings that you have indicated in the project drop-down. All charts and columns display the cumulative totals for all projects that have the same release name and end date.
