Connector Setup Details

This section describes the basic steps needed to prepare your Rally instance for use with Viz.

Minimal User Permissions & Viz User

We recommend that you create a new user within your external tool, to be used only for Viz. This is the user information you will enter when setting up your tool connection within Planview Viz. By creating a new user, you will ensure that the correct permissions are granted.

In general, your user account should have sufficient permissions to read artifacts in your tool. 

Your user should have a secure password or token. Please be aware that Viz will not allow you to save a tool connection utilizing a weak password/token, such as 'tasktop.'

List of minimal user permissions:

  • Create a Rally user account to be used by Viz and ensure that it has sufficient permissions to read artifacts in the Rally workspace and projects to be used.
  • If you have SSO enabled for Rally, the user must be configured to allow direct authentication as an exception, as the connector performs authentication directly against Rally. This can be configured by following the steps in the Rally help documentation.

Supported Field Types

Planview supports configuring rule-based modeling (i.e., conditional modeling) using the field types shown below.

Note: If one field of a given type is supported, others that are also that type in theory should also work. However, sometimes there are instances in which this is not the case due to the repository. So, while we can claim support for fields at the type level, there is a chance that some specific fields of a given type will not function properly.

Good to Know


Artifact sets can be defined at the project/subproject level. However, in the Categorize Artifacts tab, the 'Project' column only identifies the higher level Workspace. 

Although the project/subproject level is not shown in the 'Project' column, it is important to note that Viz is only pulling in artifacts that are included in the projects, subprojects, or workspaces specified at the artifact set level.
