Editing in Landscape Reports

In order to analyze your enterprise architecture, reports are a necessary tool to visualize your use-cases in a proper way and get actionable insights. This section gives a comprehensive overview of the edit pane in Landscape report views. This feature is available for Landscape reports by default.

How to use Landscape Edit

The edit pane in the reporting view allows users to quickly edit tags, attributes, and relations to Fact Sheets. To open the pane navigate to a Landscape report and choose one of the Fact sheets. Clicking on the one to edit, a pane appears on the right side which displays information about the Fact Sheet and provides the possibility to edit properties. Changes made are instantly applied to the report and the Fact Sheet itself.

🚧

  • Only the Fact Sheet data that is actually displayed on the report is shown and editable in the pane. A different view or setting (e.g., left and right property) needs to be applied to modify other Fact Sheet's data.
  • Since the data represents the current state, editing is only available at the 'Today' date on the timeline, not for the report's past or future states.

Tags

Existing tags can be removed or news tags added to a Fact Sheet based on Fact Sheet type and if multiple or single tags from the tag group can be added. By clicking the Tags area, you can directly add or remove tags in the Editing pane.

Relations

When no relation between the selected Fact Sheet and the Fact Sheet type that is selected in the report settings as 'Cluster By' (e.g., Business Capability) exists, the relation can be added by clicking on '+ Add relation' and selecting one of the listed Fact Sheets.

You'll be able to search by Fact Sheet name when selecting which to add. You can also use the scrollbar to scroll through the available options.

Relations

Only direct relations to the currently displayed hierarchy levels of the clusters can be displayed. So if the hierarchy of the clusters in the report's view is expanded to the lowest level (e.g., level 3), all relations are visible and editable. However, if the view is aggregated to higher levels (e.g., level 1), no relations to clusters of the lower levels (e.g., level 2 and 3) are visible.

Attributes

The edit pane displays Fact Sheet data and its attributes based on the view and settings of the report. For instance, if you select view and chose between the Fields on Fact Sheet (Technical Fit, Functional Fit, or Business Criticality) in the application landscape report the one selected will be editable in the edit pane once a Fact Sheet is selected.

If you'd like to make more than one field edit when using the edit pane you can quickly do so by adding them to the report properties from the Reports Settings page.

Once both fields are enabled you'll be able to view and edit them in the edit pane window.
