Dear Community Members,

 

We have two quick things to share before jumping into our Q&A for the week.

 

1. There's only one week left to save $300 on Main Event CA PPM (Clarity) training at the beautiful La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, TX: April 23-27, 2017. See the 5 Reasons People Love Our Clarity Training Event.

 

2. Rego's Introduction to Application Portfolio Management Webinar takes flight January 26th @ 12:00PM EST. Seats are filling up fast. And we just opened registration for February's Webinar: Bimodal PPM.

 

Agile + Waterfall = Bimodal. Bimodal approaches are a top priority for many CIOs and leaders. Join Rego's Rob Greca, Agile Guru, on Friday, February 17th at 12:00PM EST to discuss important factors to consider when undertaking a bimodal approach, including: financials, metrics, resources, investment hierarchy, and tooling.

 

If you want to get emails about Rego webinars, free training, and our Clarity solutions librarythe regoXchangesignup for our newsletter here. 

 

Now for the weekly Q&A!

 

Q&A Summary

 

1. Find the Mail Host File for Jaspersoft.

 

2. Crystal Report's ShowPH Grouping.

 

3. Link the Latest Status Report to the Project List Page.

 

4. Project Close Process: Zero-ing ETC.

 

Please feel free to comment on any alternative answers you've found.

 

We love your input (always).

 

 

1.

Which file contains the mail host for Jaspersoft on the JS server?

Answer

 

Check out the js.quartz.properties file in the <tomcat>/webapps/reportservice/WEB-INF folder.

 

Edit the following settings. (Mine are in Linux, so I am using localhost as the smtp server.)

 

report.scheduler.web.deployment.uri=https://xxxx/reportservice

 

report.scheduler.mail.sender.host=localhost
report.scheduler.mail.sender.username=clarity
report.scheduler.mail.sender.password=zzzz
report.scheduler.mail.sender.from=xxxx@yyyy.com
report.scheduler.mail.sender.protocol=smtp
report.scheduler.mail.sender.port=25

 

 

 

2.

I’m sure it’s just my limited understanding of Crystal, but can someone tell me how the ShowPH formula is grouping?


 

Answer

 

The @ShowPH group is an empty group, essentially used to force Crystal to show the header in question on each page, despite not having any real content with which to group.

 

 

3. 

Is there a way to link an icon from the project list page to the latest Status Report for the project?

Answer
1. Create a URL type attribute and have it updated with a link to the latest status report, when the status report is published. Re-use the status report publish process from regoXchange.
2. Use the URL redirect HTML portlet and page to create a link and use the above attribute in the link.
3. Add the status report image in the project list and use the link above.

 

Note: If you use the regoXchange process for publishing status reports, then it should store the ID of the current status report on the project object. Using this, you can easily create a link on the Linking tab of the Project Object by taking the following steps: 

 

1. Navigate to Objects > Project Object
2. Click on the Linking tab
3. Click the New button
4. Create a link to the Status Report Properties Action, using the ID for the current status report

 

 

 

Once completed, you can create an image on the project list view and use that link. This uses OOTB functionality and doesn’t require a URL redirect portlet that would be harder to maintain.

 

 

4.

I'm following the regoXchange project close process, and one of the steps doesn't zero the ETC’s. Why?

Answer
This is about your Effort Task. If there is allocation, assignment hours cannot be zero’ed.
