We are actively using IT Portfolio Management solution and updating Application Lifecycles by Excel import and we 'd like to know if there is a way to update all Application Lifecycles in mass as we cannot regenerate manually 1900+ Application Gantt Charts.Is there a macro or something that could help for this need please?
Thanks for your help and have a nice day,
Finally my assumptions were not good and there is no automated regenration of the Gantt Chart once the Technologies Lifecycles are updated, and even some issues when I try to regenerate it manually.
See attached. I will probably raise a case to MEGA Support then.
Let's keep in touch on this then,
That's always good to be curious and get a chance to learn, no worries,
I think that on HOPEX GUI, the Gantt Report is automatically regenerated once you reach the page, but for exporting the Gantt Chart on H360, I still had a doubt, as I have been laoding some technologies lifecycle recently but it seems to be properly updated as well now on H360 based publisher, as shown below.
So, my question remains opened as I would prefer to know how to apply a batch to do so, but I m not technically good enough to play with GraphQL yet @LMeden but at least my immediate constraint for H360 is resolved.
Hope those clarifications are helping you gentlemen as well.
Have a nice day and will be happy to exchange on other topics,
@JulienRoux Thanks for the feedback.
Now I'm curious. Wouldn't the gantt charts automatically regenerate (if the dates are set correctly) once you view the object in HOPEX GUI?
Where are you viewing your gantts in a way they're not refreshing? HOPEX 360 portal?
Sorry, I know I'm not providing an answer, but am genuinely curious.
Hi and thanks also,
Same here, I m looking for a way to refresh all Gantt Charts reports as we are publishing them on a Portal and they are not autmatically updated once data is change for the Object life(s) of Apps, Software Installation and Technologies.
Sure that we will find a way,
Have a nice day 😉
Hi Ben and thanks a lot for your help,
My concern is not really to import bulky data with Excel, we have our own template for this with macros and it works pretty well,
I m looking for an automated way to regenerate the Gantt Chart Reports of all applications (and I 'd say all time dependent element having an Object life) as it's not possible to make it manually (Refreshing each report one by one).
We will find a way and thanks again for your answer,
Have a nice day,
The template mentioned by @BenAvdicevic can be found in the HOPEX Store. Note: Different versions of the template exists.
If I understood you correctly - you are looking for a way to import application lifecycles in bulk.
HOPEX V5 includes ITPM Excel Template which allows you to import Application Lifecycle dates in bulk. We use this just recently - so that is how I'm aware of it.
See following Screenshots of the template:
To use the ITPM template,
The application dates should be imported in bulk.
NOTE of caution: I would test this out with a small dataset and also in a non-production repository. Bulk imports are always risky - so better to take every precaution to ensure behavior is as you expect it.
Hopefully this helps
Hello Julian ,
I am looking for the exact same thing you are looking for except that I am working on the Technology object.
I only found part of the solution in the HOPEX documentation. I know how to trigger the creation wizard for the GANTT lifecycle object, but I don't know how to insert automatically the start and end date the wizard needs to create the time periods :
Set myCreator = oMyTech.GetCollection("~II(G0eKbFTiT[Vie de l'objet]").InstanceCreator
myCreator.mode = 2
myCreator.Name = "Cycle de vie"
myAssocID = myCreator.Create
So if somebody can help us to complete the code, it would be much appreciated. 🙂
