Sharing Graphs

You can allow ALM users or others to view read-only versions of graphs outside ALM. Each time you access the graph outside ALM, it displays the most up-to-date information.

In this exercise, you will share the Defects Summary graph you created in the Generating Entity Graphs in the Analysis View Module exercise.

To share a graph:

  1. Display the Analysis View module.

    On the ALM sidebar, under Dashboard, select Analysis View.

  2. Share the Defects Summary graph.

    1. In the Private folder, under My_Analysis_Items, select Defects Summary Graph - Group by ‘Priority’.

    2. Right-click and select Share Analysis Item. The Share Analysis Item dialog box opens.

    3. Select Copy Analysis Item Public URL. This option allows others to view the graph without entering ALM user credentials.

    4. Click OK. A URL of the graph is saved to the clipboard.

  3. View the graph outside ALM.

    1. Open a Web browser window.

    2. In the address bar, paste the clipboard content, and press ENTER. The graph is displayed in the Web browser.

      Below the graph, the Last Generated date and time is displayed, and a link to the item in ALM.
