Support customization of Master/Detail Item Types

  • 1.  Support customization of Master/Detail Item Types

    ​Hi again Jama folks,

    A couple days ago I submitted a suggestion for improving the Relationship feature in Jama. That approach didn't really do the trick :) so I am wondering about this.

    How about the ability to customize items that are of a Master and Detail type?

    In Jama, the Test Case and Test Run item types support this type of master and detail relationship. See screen shot:

    An example of a Master Detail type item in Jama

    • Ideally the details in a master/detail type item could be customized just like other item types.
    • Ideally we could drag and drop detail items into a master item, just like you can drag and drop items in the Jama explorer.
    A good example would be a data dictionary item that supported the Table/Field as a master/detail item type. The table should be a single entity that could be documented along with its detail items - its fields.

    Another example is Process/Task. We need to document different info on both these types of items. And yet a process is made up of a set of tasks.

    The Jama container types (component, folder, set) do not do the trick. You can't customize a container type and you can't relate them to other items.
    I have seen many other BAs struggle with these types of Master/Detail items.

    Jama's attention on this would be much appreciated.

    Hi Lawrence, if you are trying to create  Items structure instead of a single Item, consider to create a template project with the wanted hierarchy and Reuse top Item from it in your working projects.

    I don't see how that has anything to do with what I am asking. ​

    Hi Christian, is there an article or video that describes the concept you are suggesting (​create a template project with the wanted hierarchy and Reuse top Item)
