Enhancements

Tracker - Workflow

After 4 months of intensive work, the new interface for Workflow Administration is now ready for General Availability.

New interface for workflow administration

The new interface has been designed to address common pain point when designing workflow:

But the most important change is on the way transitions are configured with introduction of “Simple” mode where pre conditions and post actions of a transitions are defined at target state level instead of per-transition.

Workflow admin simple mode

As you can see on the previous screen, you can define transitions the way you want but configurations are done for the whole column (target state). We call it “simple” because it avoids to have a tedious point & click on each and every transitions to ensure they are consistent. For instance, it’s now trivial to force a “Close date” to be set when artifact reach “Closed” status:

Workflow admin, modal window in simple mode

The “Simple” mode is the new default for all new workflow that’s been created. It’s still possible to turn them into advanced if needed. Advanced workflow can be made simple as well.

You can familiarise yourself with the all the subtle details of the switch (and more) in the updated documentation

Bugs and requests:

Project administration

Tuleap 10.11 introduce a way to clearly identify projects that needs a special treatment. It’s been design with Classified Information in mind but it can be applied to a lot more usage, for instance you could use that to highlight the top level divisions a project belongs to.

Example of flags usage

This is displayed on each and every page of the project and the information about the selected value is accessible on over of the small shield icon.

The feature is based on Project categories that are there since a long time. Site admin can now choose up to 2 top level categories to be used as “Project flag” and Tuleap we display the first value of each category.

We took the opportunity to update the “Categories” section of project administration to apply the new constraints:

Project categories interface

New document manager - Under development (Tuleap Enterprise)

New docman is still under intensive development and we’re getting closer and closer to the General Availability.

Docman document with preview

When clicking on “Quick look” button on a line, you will get a preview of the document (when possible) as well as the metadata associated to it. It displays both project defined metadata and document related ones (like file size or dates).

The preview panel can be used to make some operations on the document itself like update or download when relevant.

Docman dropdown

The dropdown menu is also available when browsing the documents in the tree view. Only a few actions are available at the moment and most of them redirect to the old interface (it’s crazy how quick we are getting used of the new interface BTW…).

Docman embedded documents

Last release it was already possible to create embedded documents but you had to write your own HTML by hand in the creation windows. That was not really convenient so the WYSIWYG editor was added to assist you in the process.

Finally, it’s now possible to configure limits on what is authorized when doing drag’n drop of files. Both number of files and max file size can be controlled by site administrators to avoid mis-use of the feature.

The work to complete the REST API for FRS has started, you will be able to completely drop you’re SOAP clients soon.
