Post-Installation Tasks → Managing Timelines → Creating Timelines → Creating Reports for the Timeline
You can create various reports that can be used for timeline data.
A single timeline uses a report for primary items and other reports for overlays and child items.
You must choose a report that has all the data needed to display as a Gantt chart, such as the All Release Trains report. You can use that report as an example to create others of your own.
To create reports:
This example timeline shows all environments with overlays for all scheduled maintenance and all scheduled release packages. Use the following reports:
This simple listing report will be the main report.
An All Environments report is provided with Release Control, so you do not need to create a new one.
Only Title and Item Id are used for this example timeline, as no range or events are used from this report.
Do not modify this report, as it is used by the system. If you need a variation of this report, copy it and save it under a different name.
|All Scheduled Maintenance||
This will be an overlay with ranges.
|All Scheduled Release Packages||
This report is the same as the All Scheduled Maintenance report except for the search filters and the report title.
Event Type contains any Release Package
In Timeline Manager, add a timeline or edit an existing one and change it to use these new reports.
To use the new reports:
Now the timeline can be accessed by the URL and any user with remote administration privilege will be able to edit it.
