I am using portecle to generate a java store cert for JIRA. I created the keystore, create the key pair, generated the CSR, processed the CSR using third party CA. I then imported the root cert into Portecle. When I import the CA response I get "could not establish trust for the CA reply. The import cannot proceed.
Why is this happening as everything appears correct.

Hello,

I want some help to create a pre commit hook to Restrict Subversion commits if the Jira Issue key is Not in.
I am very new to SVN and don't have any experience in scripting also.
SVN is installed on Windows serve 2016.
Any help would be highly appreciated.

I have found the below link.But its for Linux and not sure how to change it to windows.

Hi,

I have been working as a Product Manager for a number of years now, and i've tried and use all of the below:

- Trello (probably the most user-friendly of them all, it is not essentially project management software for a software company)
- Jira (i find this clunky)
- Asana (Same as Trello but not as user friendly

My typical weekly tasks, with a team of 8:

- Report bugs: these are added to the Development team's 'weekly sprint list' in Trello, or added to an Urgent list if urgent
- New Feature: these are planned and added to the Development team's 'weekly sprint list' in Trello
- Ad Hoc Tasks: some of our sales teams will request various product requests that we need our Development team to look into, however we don't really add these to Trello, we discuss them... as they don't require development just yet.

So, as you can see we plan weekly sprints, but the 'Ad Hoc Tasks' can linger on there is no really process for the developers to work on, as they could be 2 months of discussions before anything happens so they don't fall into the weekly sprink tasks

QUESTIONS

01 - what Project Management software would you recommend based on the above

02 - how would you recommend approaching and managing the Ad Hoc Tasks

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have a very big production server in a VM with lots of web pages and SQL database code.

I have 3 options:

1) DEV server with VisualSVN and Jira for bug tracking
PROD server

When code is tested on DEV, it is deployed to PROD.  


2) PROD / DEV server is the same machine with VisualSVN and Jira for bug tracking
When code is tested on DEV, it is deployed to PROD.

3) DEV server with VisualSVN
PROD server
JIRA server (hosted version for bug tracking)

When code is tested on DEV, it is deployed to PROD.  

-> Which option would you choose and why?

-> How do you track bugs and how do developers communicate in joint projects / code?

Hi,

I'm looking for some advice on how to manage document libraries when it come to project management.  We have SharePoint 2013 and have recently started setting it up for managing our projects. The first part is our project tender process. This is when we bid for projects.  I have created a single document library to hold all these documents.  Each tender will be created in it's own document set within the document library.  
I have applied several categories to the tender list, such as the status of the tender, (i.e. tendering, submitted, won, lost, etc) and the type of tender.  This gives me around 10 different views.
Now, where the issue lies is the number of files that are now in the document library.  It has just gone over the 5000 item threshold limit. I know that I can go into the settings in the administration panel and increase this threshold.
But, rather than just increasing this threshold, I would like to manage it differently.

It is not affecting our system yet, but I would like to jump on the current issue before it becomes a bigger problem (if it is one) :)

How do I add developers to the bug assignments list in tfs 2015?

My tester is adding bugs to a project and is complaining that there are no developers in the drop-down list of developers to assign the bug to... I'm not familiar with using TFS as a testing platform; is there a TFS role the developer need to be in?
I guess the base question is: What feeds the bug assignments drop-down list?

Thanks

I'm not a SharePoint expert by any means, but I've loosely followed the a guide online (sharegate) for creating a Project Management site, where you have sub-sites as "projects" created from a site "template" to keep uniform, consistent sites with apps/web parts to manage a project.
I then have a content query on the main site that shows all the sub-sites, which are effectively all projects.
Problem I'm having is determining how to know when a project is "complete" and thus how to then remove it from the content query at the top. No sense in having projects showing up if they were from years ago.
I also would rather not delete them, for historical purposes and reference (could be some good useful documents in their doc libraries for example).
So with existing 15 projects, anything I can do to each site like add a drop-down or form where the project is marked active/complete, etc, and then modify a the search query to exclude them?
To give the same example from the article I followed, the query is like this:    
path:"http://demo/projects" contentclass:STS_WEB Site<>{Site.URL}

Hi, i've been using Trello a lot lately and i'm considering moving everything over from Evernote to Trello. Like many others on here, productivity and organisation are key to me.

While there is no right or wrong answer to my question(s), I would like to hear what other people's thoughts and setup are, in relation tot he following:

01 - when you have a list of items or tasks... how do you define whether you should add them as 'multiple cards on a list' or 'add all of the items as a checklist to one card' :-)

02 - has anyone else moved their notes from Evernote to Trello... how did you find the change?

03 - any regrets or dislikes with Trello

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi,

We currently use Dropbox and Google Drive for sharing various different documents and files on a one to one basis... however i'd like to set up a shared folder (hub) and store key files that are used on a regular basis, and not just for once off sharing.


It is important that I can set various different permissions as i don't want various departments updating or editing some of the files and docs.

From your experience, which is a more suitable platform for a shared hub of files (not online docs)? We will always use Google Drive for docs and sheets, but which is better for a file storage repository case... Google Drive or Dropbox?

Here are some example file types and use cases that might explain this better:

- logos
- brand guidelines
- stock images
- templates (code)

It is important that 90% of the team can only read and copy the files, and that senior management are the only members of staff who can edit them.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Using MS Project I would like to show the task items and duration - start and end date.  This is fairly easy and I can do that. I meet with developers and they provide me with the list of tasks and number of days to complete.  I need to present this schedule to the program manager with the developers estimated days to complete the task and then my estimate and then the best possible estimate on how long  would take to complete the project.

I read about PERT analysis and trying to do using MS Project 2012. Has anyone done some thing like this before and can share your thoughts?

thanks

Hi ,

I want to introduce a data 'template' to be completed in project planning. To explain a bit more we undertake a lot of data projects but want more thought to be given on how the data is handles, for example what fields are needed and what IT system is needed.

Has anyone produced anything like this please ?

I have a need for a calendar system that allows for different/multiple category grouping.  Here's the background on the situation and what I'm looking to do:

We have colleagues that want to share work calendars.  So, the first part is we want to be able to view calendars by person (yay, the easy part).  So we have Jim, John, and Mary.  I want to be able to view all of their calendars, one at a time or all together.  

However, Jim, John, and Mary work with the the same client companies, say Genzyme, Walmart, and Adobe.  So, each person will have calendar items for each of those clients.  

I would like to be able to view the calendar for each person, listing their calendar items with all of the clients.
AND
I would like to be able to view the calendar for each client.  For instance, seeing a calendar for Walmart which will list when each of my colleagues have something scheduled for that client.

Are there are any calendar products that can do this?  

Thank you!!!
