Overview → About Serena Release Control → Key Metrics
Release Control provides several views into your release activities.
These views are available when the Release Ctrl application group is pinned and selected. Views are available to all Release Control users, but privileges determine which data is visible to users in each view.
All views except timelines are implemented using standard Serena Work Center functionality. For information on modifying these, refer to the Serena Work Center help.
The Release Dashboard includes widgets with graphical reports that show the overall health of your release activities. By default, widgets with the following reports are provided:
A customizable Timeline presents the overall status for release trains in a Gantt chart format. The Timeline provided in the default implementation is shown in the following figure.
If you change the report to something other than All Release Trains, you must ensure that the selected report has all the fields required for the Timeline. You can use the All Release Trains report as a model for a new report.
You can also create a new Timeline and add it to Work Center. For details, view the "Timeline" posts on Serena Central.
Release Control provides several system Calendar views that show various release metrics in a calendar format. Each of these system views has feeds that show schedules for each application; users can choose which of the feeds to view for a browser session.
The following default feeds are included with the system Calendar views:
Release Control provides system Activity views that give users easy access to release items based on feeds.
Three types of Activity views are provided:
Shows all release trains, approvals, environments, task templates, and release packages.
Depending on the selection in the navigation pane, shows all items owned by the current user. For example, "My Approvals" shows all approvals owned by the current user.
Depending on the selection in the navigation pane, shows all items. For example, "All Trains" shows all release trains in the system.
Administrators can edit and remove the default feeds from each system Activity view. They can also add custom feeds. These changes are visible to all Release Control users.
Users can add Activity feeds to the system views, but they can remove only the feeds they have added.
Release Control includes the power of SBM reports, enabling you to define search, display, and sort information for release activities. Reports offer real-time data based on the report criteria, giving users current information when they need it. Several types of report formats are available, including lists, tables, and charts.
Reports can be added to Dashboard views. For details, refer to the Serena Work Center help.
