Data Management (DMS) provides the DevOps feature. This feature allows you to specify participants, databases, and iteration templates for a project. This can efficiently ensure a smooth R&D process, reduce accidental operations, and protect data security.

Create a project

  1. Log on to the DMS console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, move the pointer over the All functions icon and choose R&D Space > DevOps.
  3. Click the Project tab.
  4. Click Create Project.
  5. In the Create Project dialog box, set the parameters that are described in the following table and click OK.
    Parameter Description
    Project Name The name of the project.
    Project administrator The administrator of the project. You can select one or more administrators. By default, the creator of the project is selected. A project administrator has the following permissions:
    • View and edit the basic information about the project.
    • Be assigned to an approval node of an approval process in an iterative stage.
    Project tester The tester of the project. You can select one or more testers. A tester can be assigned to an approval node of an approval process in an iterative stage.
    Participants The participant of the project. You can select one or more participants. A project participant can perform the following operations:
    • View the basic information about the project.
    • Create an iteration in the project.
    Note Only project administrators, database administrators (DBAs), and DMS administrators can add or remove a project participant.
    Available Iteration Templates The iteration template that is available in the project. You can select one or more iteration templates.
    • If one or more iteration templates are selected, only the selected iteration templates are available when you create an iteration in the project.
    • If no iteration template is selected, all the iteration templates in the Available Iteration Templates drop-down list are available when you create an iteration in the project.
    Note After an iteration template is associated with a project, the configurations of existing iterative stages can be modified. However, you cannot create or delete an iterative stage.
    For more information, see Manage iteration templates.
    Available Databases The database that is available in the project. You can select one or more databases.
    • If one or more databases are selected, only the selected databases are available when you create an iteration in the project.
    • If no database is selected, all the databases of the current tenant are available by default when you create an iteration in the project.
    Project Description The description of the project. Enter an informative description that can help you manage the project.

Create an iteration

You can use the iteration feature to advance an R&D process stage by stage. Specific types of tickets can be submitted to perform operations in each iterative stage. This makes the R&D process more efficient.

To create an iteration, go to the Project Details page and click Create Iteration. For more information, see Manage iterations.

Manage a project

On the Project Details page, you can manage a project and modify the basic information about the project.

Note Only project administrators, DBAs, and DMS administrators can perform the following operations. Other users have only query permissions on the project.
