Standalone

A Standalone project, as opposed to Connected, provides a management of results from any source (i.e. custom build automation). It has no service connection and requires all spaces to be manually created.

Standalone projects require manual management of spaces.


To create a new project click the New Project button at the top right of your organization's view.

New Project

Creating a new Project or editing the properties of an existing Project requires Administrator or Owner privileges. Also, note that a project's type cannot be changed.

Settings#

OptionDescription
NameNames are not case-sensitive
  • The name must be unique among Projects under the same Organization
  • The name may not contain the following characters / & # ?
Tip: Avoid names with spaces. They require quoting if specified on the command line.

DescriptionTextual description of the project. The description text supports a subset of Markdown.
PublicWhen checked the project are visible to the public. Otherwise the project is considered private and is only accessible to Users in your organization.
UsersA selection of users that have access to the project with their current email notification settings.

To edit the settings of an existing project, in the organization's Projects tab, hover your mouse over a row in the listing, on the very left a "hamburger" icon will be shown. If you left-click on the icon, a menu is displayed with options to Edit or Delete.

Spaces#

Spaces under standalone projects are manually created and can be updated or deleted at any time. They are used to collect and analyze data from any source (i.e. custom build automation). To create a new space, c/lick on the New Space button in the Spaces tab of a project's view.

New Space

Space Settings#

OptionDescription
NameName of the space
  • Names are not case-sensitive
  • The name must be unique among spaces under the current project
Tip: Avoid names with white-spaces as they require quoting if specified on the command line.
DescriptionTextual description of the space. The description text supports a subset of Markdown.
SandboxWhen checked the space is categorized as a sandbox and is not listed in the top level organization dashboard. Sandbox spaces do not send email notifications and are excluded from contributing to the parent project's Insights.
Copy settings from another spaceOn creation only, this allows you to copy settings from an existing "base" space. This includes metrics, badges, and thresholds. The prepopulated "base" content is given an auto-generated result name: [<number>]<base-space-name>#<base-result-set-name>
Health IndicatorsEdit Space dialog only. Allows you to specify a Publication deadline for results in days. Exceeding the deadline fails the space's health. A value of 0 disables the deadline (default).

Sandbox#

Sandbox spaces provide a fully-functional space that can be used for non-mainline tasks. They are used primarily for staging new tests, and for providing a sandbox when bug fixing or experimentation.

Sandbox spaces have the following attributes:

  • Email notifications are never sent regardless of the space's settings
  • These spaces are not shown in the Organization view
  • These spaces are shown only on their parent's Project view
  • They are excluded from project Insights

Space Editing#

In the Spaces tab in a project's view, if you hover your mouse over a row in the listing, on the very left a "hamburger" icon will be shown. If you left-click on the icon, a menu is displayed with the following options.

OptionDescription
EditDisplays the Space's settings dialog.
MoveDisplays a dialog allowing you to move the Space to a different Project.

Space Deletion#

A deleted space can be restored up to thirty days after it has been deleted. When there are one or more restorable spaces there will be shown a special link below the Spaces Listing on contaning project's view.

Space Restore Icon

Clicking on the Recover your deleted spaces link will show a special view which lists the Project's deleted Spaces within the thirty-day window. To restore an individual space in this list, hover your mouse cursor over the right end of the row that lists the space of interest. (Names shown in this list have extra text appended to the original space name to ensure that all names in the list are unique.) A clickable circular arrow icon is shown.

Restore Space Click

Clicking the icon will restore the space. (The original unmangled space name will be given to the restored space unless another space in the project already has this name, in which case the restored space will be given the mangled name.)

Space Retention Policy#

To prevent abuse, the lifetime and count of Spaces in a standalone Project are bound to the following retention policy:

  • 3 months to keep (independent of the count)
  • 50 minimum to keep (independent of the timestamp)

Independent of the above, all metric data is maintained to provide statistics for the project.

note

The lifetime of individual Results is bound to a separate retention policy.
