Multiple extra information can be imported to AWS Blu Insights based on a simple Excel template file. This allows for example injecting details into existing projects such as source code descriptions, workpackage listings, etc. for thousands of files within a few seconds.
AWS Blu Insights relies on the columns of the first row to automatically detect the information to be loaded and where it should be inserted. It is important to only keep columns filled with data to import and remove the extra ones. For example, to import workpackages and their descriptions, only the “Workpackage names” and the “Workpackage description” columns should be kept in the Excel file.
Before importing the Excel file, an analysis is performed to check its content and potential errors that may occur (e.g. trying to add a label to a non-existing file). The analysis report can be empty (everything is ok) or may contain some warnings. The warnings are grouped into 5 categories:
The import can be done within 2 modes:
Workpackages, test scenarios, datasets, labels, status are automatically created if they do not exist in the project.
All the imported Excel files are listed. Multiple actions can be performed on those inputs:
