Examine the enhancement requests
Assessing the State of your Project
Working with Enhancement Requests
Recall that you started the tutorial by looking at an enhancement request that you
later implemented. In the next exercise, you find more enhancement requests to
implement in the next iteration.
Exercise: Examine the enhancement requests.
In the left pane of ClearQuest, go to Public Queries > ClassicsCD Web Project, then
double-click All Project Enhancement Requests.
In the right pane near the top of the list, click CLSIC00000036, Need to notify
customer via email when order ships to display details about this enhancement
request. Notice that the enhancement request is in the Submitted state, but it has not
yet been assigned. Click the History tab to learn more about the request and its
Now click CLSIC00000031, Need to notify customer via e-mail when order ships to
display its details. Notice that the enhancement request is in the Assigned state. To
see who is assigned to this request, click the Analysis tab.
Notice that both ClearQuest entries request the same enhancement for the online
store. It is typical for several entries with a very similar, if not identical,
enhancement request or defect to be stored in a ClearQuest database. This allows
project teams to evaluate, or triage, each ClearQuest entry. Team members can
determine more than just to whom requests or defects should be assigned, but also
identify those entries which are duplicates of existing or new requirements,
modify them to detail the duplication, and close them with this resolution
