Projects in TrustSource are the canvas for what typically is an application, a solution or a self-contained part of a solution. A project is the legal boundary of a solution and therefor comes with an own legal questionnaire. You may manage the settings and handling of several modules within the boundary of a project.
Projects may comprise of:
- their settings (legal, black & whitelists, specific rights, releases, approvals, etc.)
- separate modules (e.g. delivery artifacts from your compilations and or open source)
- infrastructure modules (e.g. components such as databases, frameworks, etc.)
To create a project select >INTERNAL< and >PROJECTS< from the navigation bar on the left and click on the >CREATE NEW< button. In the following dialogue you specify the name of the project. Make sure to select one, that will help you to distinguish it from others. Something like "My1stProject" is just a good choice for demonstration purposes. ;-)
After the first step, the project immediately will appear in the projects list. If there are more projects, you might not see it immediately. Make use of the filtering options n the upper right corner of the screen, to reduce the number of entries displayed.
In a second step you should now arrange some basic settings. This comprises:
- Access control
- Documentation data
- Legal requirements
- Black- or Whitelisting
- Integration with Jira
- Show history
- Delete the project
PLEASE NOTE: The more details you will provide on the project, e.g. description, the better your reports will look like.
As long as the legal questionnaire is not completed, the project card will be colored orange. Analysis will not deliver reasonable results as long as the legal settings are not completed.
In general the person creating a project will be the default project manager for this project. This may be changed in the project settings.
