Question

ideas to CM support towards on an Other Than Authority project?

I have been assigned as CM on an OTA project or Other Than Authority Project, very similar to IR&D or prototype. I have written a cm plan based on a department cm plan and modified for the project.  But after discussion with the project lead today, and answered responses to a review of drafted CM plan.  They want little to no CM support, not even recording or archiving their CDRLs.  They would much rather rely on each area to draft, review, and provide CDRLs to customer early on, plus they are using Sharepoint as well to allow customer to review their CDRLs.  

here is a definition of an OTA found on the web. What is Other Transaction Authority (OTA)?

what are the differences between software builds and software versions?

what is the role of software builds like private, integration and release builds in software development life cycle? What kind of documentation is required at build level? Can i allocate version no to a build and when version allocation came into action?

hello,

I am trying to passwd the number of redhat release into the file:

 

    - name: To get the RHEL Release

      shell: cat /etc/redhat-release | awk '{ print $7 }' |cut -c1

      register: RH_REL

#

    - shell: touch /etc/yum.repos.d/wfpatch.repo

    - shell: echo [RHEL-{{ RH_REL }}-2020_{{ WW }}-OS] > /etc/yum.repos.d/patch.repo

 

 

 

but instead of just 1 number that should be = 6 or 7 (we run only rhel6 or 7)  , so instead I am getting all 

 

ok: [dmzpnet6.wellsfargo.net] => {

    "RH_REL": {

        "changed": true,

        "cmd": "cat /etc/yum.repos.d/rh_rel",

        "delta": "0:00:00.003045",

        "end": "2020-01-31 18:26:06.342559",

        "failed": false,

        "rc": 0,

        "start": "2020-01-31 18:26:06.339514",

        "stderr": "",

        "stderr_lines": [],

PVCS Version Manager VS GIT?

We may need to switch from our long standing, 20+ years use of PVCS VM to GIT.  CM would like to maintain a Master repository with no branching but allow the developers the freedon to do so bur then merge back into the master.  Also are their resources available on pulling information from GIT repository for reports as in a list of files, revisions and change dates for each baseline?  Is their any formal training available for GIT and setting it up?  Thanks for any guidance on this.

Integration overview path Who Should Set Up Continuous Integration for Automated Tests?

If you want to trigger long-running, end-to-end automated tests, you must integrate the test execution system with the continuous integration system. But this job falls in a fuzzy area that meets at the nexus of feature development, test automation development, quality assurance, and build and release engineering. Here's how to decide who should be responsible for the setup.

What kind of software is everyone using to keep track of all documentation related to release management.

Tools like JIRA, Service Now for Incident management, I'm looking for a software platform that will keep track of all related documentation, test plans, user sign offs etc... But what I have not been able to find and is critical for me is a Parent - Child, Child - Child relationship of all changes.

Such as:

CR12345 - is the parent record

  CR12345A - is a child record to CR12345

     CR12345A1 - is a child record of CR12345A

CR12345B is a child record to CR12345

Has anyone seen software that can support this?

Configuration Baseline

I'm the Configuration Manager for a large enterprise project. I was added to the team after around 8 months worth of developement/staging had already taken place. We're working toward a short-term ATO, and PMO is looking to baseline our applications. My argument is that we're not ready to baseline, as we're still in developemnt. No configuation items are recorded in Remedy, the Change Managemnet process isn't fleshed out (as that is also my tasking), and we have no historical records that I can find for how are architecture came to this point. Simply, here, this is version one, and now start documenting from this point forward.  Am I worng in my push-back on this stance? Shouldn't I first work to identify the CIs and their historical changes (as best as I can documnet)? Further info: this system will be the subject of an offical audit, not just my configuration audit.

Organizations undergoing a digital transformation must adopt new and meaningful ways of working. For a successful transformation, in addition to agile processes, teams must also leverage agile engineering techniques and models. Continuous focus on agile engineering principles will provide a solid ground for teams to enhance their agility and deliver better software, faster.
