ABACUS Studio Update: Reports – Parent Filter & Property Descriptions

16 February 2019

Reporting in ABACUS has been updated today with new filters and dataset selection options.

Adding to a key function of enterprise architecture and IT planning, the new features allow reports to focus on the properties for a single component type and filter datasets by their associated parent type.

Users can surface and publish key information for a single type of component in a given architecture or project with details including the property field, property type field, property description field, and standard properties field for the single component type query. They will also be able to use filters when reporting on a collection of elements to more easily generate documentation based on elements that have a specific parent, or combine these with other filters to further narrow down report dataset selections quickly.

 

Additional features in this update:

  • Catalog color/heat-mapping for non-list properties now shows as rounded rectangles in ABACUS Studio
  • Properties reverted to default now show details of the user who made the revision rather than the details of the user who originally created the component.
  • Visual Algorithm Composer
    • Now checks that a user has “Update” permissions before attempting to write properties to selected architecture(s) when running algorithms
    • Now allows users to save, open, and manage personal algorithms
  • Libraries referenced by scripts (DLL’s) can now exist outside the ABACUS program folder
  • Example files and the Avolution Framework library have been updated with the latest links to useful content

ABACUS Enterprise Update: Bubble charts – Now in color

17 January 2019

Bubble chart with color

Users of ABACUS will know ABACUS Enterprise for its easy-access dynamic visualizations and real-time data management.

With the latest build, one of the most popular charts, the bubble chart (or scatter chart), can now display an additional property through color.

Bubble charts could already display up to three properties visually via the xy axes and bubble size. Bubble charts are extremely useful for comparing business fit and technical fit, with users needing to choose between other key properties including TCO, criticality or recommendation shown by the size of the bubble for the third property.

Adding a further dimension using color allows users to show additional detail and provide further mission-critical insights at a glance.

Bubble charts retain the ability to display other information on hover as well, allowing for easy identification of data with labels and a sixth property displayed side by side.

Expert Tip: Try filtering by selecting a component (bubble) on the chart. This will filter select data visualizations on the same dashboard for quick insights into other properties and related components and connections. This also works for column, bar, pie, and line charts.

 

Additional features in this update:

  • Improvements to the wording and layout of the user auto-provision email notification
  • Enabled TLS over version 1.0 for connecting to IDPs
