Programs

To work with programs in Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), assign items to your programs. You can then filter, rank, and gain insights on items according to their associated programs.

Editions: Programs are available with Enterprise Edition.

Overview

In SAFe, a program represents an ongoing system development mission. For details, refer to the SAFe website.

For example, in a private banking workspace, you might create programs called DirectPay, MyAccount Mobile, MyAccount Web, Services, and Back Office.

Programs are defined within a workspace. For details, see Organize workspaces into programs.

Working with programs

There are a number of ways to work with programs:

  • Backlog items. Associate backlog items (features, user stories, quality stories, and defects) with programs, and then filter the Backlog module grid accordingly.

  • Teams. Assign teams to programs. You can then assign work items to teams according to their program association.

  • Pipelines. Assign pipelines to a program. The pipelines' automated tests are automatically assigned to the program as well.

  • Tests. Filter tests whose covered content is associated with a program.

  • Releases. Programs can be assigned and worked on in one or more releases.

  • You can also assign application modules, tests, and runs to a program.

Tip: Filter by programs using the programs selector in the toolbar, next to the workspace selector.
