Select Filter Page

This wizard page enables you to set the filter that is applied to the graph data.

Important information
  • General information about this wizard is available here: Graph Wizard.

  • If your graph includes multiple projects, you can filter using only fields that are in all the selected projects.

  • ALM Editions: Including multiple projects in graphs is not available for Quality Center Enterprise Edition. For more information about ALM editions and their functionality, see ALM Editions. To find out what edition of ALM you are using, ask your ALM site administrator.

  • Progress or Trends graphs: If you set a filter on the same field as the Group By field, groups in the graphs may include values that you filtered out. This is because in progress and trend graphs the filter operates on current values, while groupings operate on historical values. For example, say the Group By field in a Defects graph is set to Status, and the current filter includes all defects whose status is Open. When the graph is generated, all previous statuses of the open defects, such as Rejected, will appear in the graph even if Rejected was not included in the filter.
