Sample Project Baseline Custom Reports

The latest version of SpiraTeam and SpiraPlan (v6.5.2) has support for creating and managing project baselines. In this initial release there are no standard reports built into the system for viewing baselines and the changes that have occurred. This article we provide some custom reports you can use until the next version is released.

Creating a Simplifed Custom Requirements Report

We recently needed to get a report of a set of requirements and include the associated tasks and enhancements/bugs related to the new requirements so that we could have a virtual design session. We took the standard Requirements Detailed Report and make some changes. This article provides that report in case you ever need something similar

Creating a Custom Report with Grouped Headings

A customer asked us how we could group the data in a report by a sub-heading. For example, suppose you want to display a list of all the Components, and under each component, show a table of associated requirements. Well your trusty friend XSLT 1.0 comes to the rescue.

Increasing the Size of Rapise Images in Spira Reports

When you run Rapise automated tests using RapiseLauncher the system will automatically embed the images from Rapise into the various test cases and test run reports. By default the report format has relatively small images so that they can fit easily into the tables of expected result and actual results. However some users have asked for ways to make the images bigger.

How to Specify the Width of Columns in Acrobat PDF Format Reports

The standard PDF reports in Spira and KronoDesk uses a dynamic table layout, so all of the cells take a general width that is based on the number of columns and the width of the page. A customer wanted to be able to modify the widths to make certain columns larger or smaller (e.g. make the ID field smaller than the name). This article explains the process to do this.

Display Report of Task, Incident, Test Case Effort by Person

In this article, we will create a custom report that displays a list of users in the system and the associated effort for tasks, incidents and test cases.

Report of Test Cases and Test Results by Program

A customer asked us if we could provide a report of all the test cases and test results across all projects and programs. In the future we plan on having built in screens for quality managers to be able to see the test results and test metrics across all projects without needing to run a report. However this report will give you the information in the meantime.

Creating a Report of User Activity and Effort

A customer asked us if we could provide a report of all the activity by users across all projects and programs. In the future we plan on having built in screens for resource managers to be able to see user activity across all projects without needing to run a report. However this report will give you the information in the meantime.

Pie Chart of Test Run by Status for Release

Sometimes customers need to show a Graph with all the Test Runs by status for a specific Release in Spira. This article explains how to use the custom graphing engine to achieve this.

Pie Chart of Incident Status for a Specific Component

Sometimes customers need to show a Graph with all the Incidents by status for a specific Component in Spira. This article explains how to use the custom graphing engine to achieve this.

Custom Report that Displays Test Sets, Test Cases, Test Steps and Linked Incidents/Attachments

A customer asked us how you could create a custom report that shows the following information in a single table:

  • A list of test sets containing:
    • test cases
      • test steps
  • For each test step, the linked:
    • attachments
    • incidents
Creating a Requirements Traceability Report of Requirements Tests and Defects

A customer asked us if it was possible to create a version of the requirements traceability report that would display the following:

  • Requirement (name and ID)
  • Test Case (name and ID)
  • Test Run (ID and execution status)
  • Incident (ID)
Create Test Case Folder Report

If you want to generate a list of all the test case folders in a product, here is an example template to get you started

 

Creating a Summary Report of Test Cases and Defects

Sometimes you want a simple test execution report that includes the list of test cases, execution dates and raised defects, without all the ancillary information in the standard Spira reports. This article provides an example of such a report.

Simple Requirements Document Report

Customers sometimes ask us for a way to generate a report that would be a human readable requirements document. The built-in requirements detailed report often has more information that is needed in such a report.  This article describes how to create such a report.

Creating a Report of Incidents' Reopen Count

One of the metrics that customers often find useful is the number of times that a specific incident has been reopened. We plan on adding some built-in dashboard widgets for this metric, but in the meantime, we have a custom report that you can use to report on this metric from Spira.

Creating a Report of Documents in SpiraTeam

A customer asked us this question:

My team is using SpiraTeam 5.4 as a storage vault for all software documents. The documents are placed in a specific project "System" that has been created for this specific purpose.

The documents are placed into several subdirectories: Requirements, Risks, Design., General, etc

Can we generate a report that lists the name of the document, folder, author, and current version.

Writing a Custom Report to Display the Count of Incidents By Project and Priority

A customer of ours asked for a custom report / graph for displaying the count of incidents by project and by priority.

Requirement - Test Step Traceability Report

Of the unique needs of a requirements and test management system when working in the Defense industry, specifically when designing, building, and testing mission systems, is the ability to link individual test steps to the requirements.  This article provides you with a custom report to use to display such a traceability matrix.

Creating a Requirements Traceability Support Report

A customer asked us if it was possible to create a version of the requirements traceability report that would not display each of the individual mapped test cases, but instead would give summary counts by priority.

Customizing the Requirements Traceability Report in Spira

We often get enquiries from customers looking to customize some of the reports in Spira. Although our support does not generally extend to writing such reports for customers (we have consultants and partners who would be happy to do it as a service), in this article we explain a common situation that we get asked about.
