Does anyone know what affects the importance value (primary, secondary, elementry) of applications and how to set these. With the value being displayed in query tables and our applications being divided into importance categories it seems a waste that we do not know how to set it. I see no reference on what values influance this virtual attribute. All help greatly appreciated.
I have found no reference to application importance in the manuals of the dictionary. Just that it is a virtual meta attribute. However I have noticed those discussions with a reply tend to get a significantly higher number or views, so I have added this reply to encourage more views and hopefully the sippit of information which will help in setting an value somewhere which in turn will change the importance setting for applications (and the importance of other metaclasses).
Hi Kelvin, thank you for taking the time ot respond. We are on the Hopexcloud environment 2.1 update 3 with just the web front end, so we have no access to the the thick client. I am sure someone from MEGA will be keen to share how this can be achieved in their flagship product offering.
I have just had feed back from support on this as below.
After asking the R&D (and Product management) this column "importance" is hard code and you can't this value, more than this this column is not useful regarding them. It'sa bug that this column is displayed.
What is important one minute might be important in another. For example, one minute importance might be Business Value, but in another it might be Technical Efficiency, and in another it might be a combination of the two. At a few companies, I have established KPIs that dasboards and reports help to answer. Our users can choose the KPI they are interested in and filter by various criteria.
