Step 1 General on the eleven step wizard for preparing a new PI session

Providing General Information

When creating a new PI session we start on the #1 General information page. You can set the following fields:

  • Give your upcoming PI session a name

    • It is important to choose a name that Users will recognize as the name appears in the web UI when logging in to direct Users to the right PI session

  • Start date of your PI

    • Typically the first date of the PI event

  • Number of Iterations

    • Iterations is the timebox for a Team (the term is derived from the XP literature). In Scrum parlance this is referred to as a Sprint. Using the Principle of Cadence and Synchronization, the Number of Iterations refers to the number of Iterations/Sprints in the larger PI timebox. Example: 5x Iterations included in the PI; 4x standard Iterations and the recommended IP Iteration = 5.

  • Duration of one Iteration in [calendar] Days

    • Example: 14 days for a standard 2x week Sprint

  • Select ALM Tool

    • After selecting the ALM Connection the system will validate the connection in realtime. If any errors you need to validate the ALM Connection in ALM Connections.

  • Confirm the deletion of stickies (checkbox)

    • Check this checkbox if you wish Users to be prompted to confirm the deletion of Sticky Notes

  • Next button will turn active after the ALM Connection is validated.
