IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization (ELO) – Engineering Insights (ENI, previously known as RELM), allows you to create Views and Impact Analysis Diagrams to show the relationships between your artifacts from Lifecycle Management applications.

IBM ENI leverages LQE indexing capabilities, making it work with up-to-date information and be able to support Configuration enabled projects.

Before you start

This article assumes that you have already configured LQE and have added Jira data sources in LQE.

We will not cover the usage of IBM ELO - Engineering Insights in this article. If you need additional help on the usage of Engineering Insights tools, you can find it on the ibm.com documentation (https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/elm/7.0.2?topic=engineering-insights).

Displaying Jira data

Creating a new IBM ELO - ENI view with Jira data

Now that you have Jira data available in LQE, you can use it to create Views or Diagrams in ENI:

  1. Open the ENI application and go to Views, choose to Create View at the top of the page.

  2. Choose a name for this View and additional general options if necessary, then click Next.

  3. You may now select the Projects that you are interested in, make sure to select at least one Jira project, then click Finish.

Adding Jira data to the scope of an existing ENI View

To display Jira issues in existing ENI Views:

  1. Open your existing ENI View.

  2. Click the Limit scope button in the toolbar.

  3. Browse the Project List and select a Jira project.

Using Jira Issues in an ENI view

Your ENI view now has access to the Jira data stored in LQE. The next step is to display it in the View:

  1. In the right-hand side menu, locate the Jira issue entry and drag and drop it in the View.

  2. A menu opens, click the Edit scope tab and select a Jira project in the list then click Ok to confirm.

    • (Optional) You may also add conditions or sorting rules to refine the Jira Issue container content.

  3. The Jira issue container should now appear in the View.

  4. You may now create additional issue containers and add a link between these two containers.
