If you are looking into server load issues on your Jazz application server, you may want to review the Known Resource-intensive Scenarios article. The article aims to capture user and system scenarios across the ALM portfolio that can potentially drive relatively higher load on a Jazz application. Such scenarios can lead to server debt (such as out-of-memory errors) if they are run during peak times on systems that don't have sufficient spare resources available. These scenarios are qualified or quantified to make them easier to understand. Where possible, best practices are provided that can minimize or avoid the issue altogether.

What’s new? Enhanced support for lean enterprise transformations in CLM 6.0.5 - Organizations across all industries are under great pressure to quickly adapt to new market conditions. They need to transform their approach to systems engineering and software development to deliver new features and offerings faster and respond to feedback — continuously. Most of them have been experimenting with lean and agile principles to reach that goal. But many are still struggling to apply those best practices for small, co-located teams, much less get the full benefits at enterprise scale.
We’ve been paying attention and are focused on beefing up our approach and solution for adopting agility at scale. Here are some of the highlights available in Collaborative Lifecycle Management 6.0.5 to help you as you get started or continue to drive this kind of transformation across your enterprise. If you’re not adopting the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) methodology, please don’t stop reading, because there are things for you here regardless of the processes in place! [Read more....]

Getting started with reporting by using Lifecycle Query Engine data sources in version 6.0.3: You can use the Report Builder in the Jazz Reporting Service to create and run reports about artifacts across projects or versioned data in configurations. Using indexed data from the Lifecycle Query Engine (LQE) data sources, you can, for example: Create a multi-project report that shows test cases, the requirements that they validate, and related defects. You can include designs from Design Manager by editing the SPARQL query in the Advanced section of Report Builder. Run this report, scoping the results by choosing a configuration (stream or baseline). Learn how to set up your environment and understand some of the limitations when you use either the LQE or LQE using Configurations data source. Consider the limitations described here before you use LQE data sources for production reports. If you are interested only in document-style reports, you can export Report Builder reports as Rational Publishing Engine templates to make document authoring easier. [Read more at Jazz.net...]

From DOORS 18.104.22.168 and RQM 6.0.1, it is possible to use link discovery instead of back linking.
With link discovery, links from RQM to DOORS are only stored in RQM. When opening a module in DOORS, it will query RQM to display the links.
With this feature, RQM does not need to acquire a lock on requirements to create a link, so it reduces conflict between RQM users and DOORS users.
In this article, you will learn how to enable this feature.
