Create Custom Pages

Custom pages allow you to create views that provide quick access to the data you need. You can build a custom page that summarizes CA Agile Central data in list, chart, or board form, and you can also include data from additional web sites that support your collaborative development processes such as a common wiki, calendar, source code repository, continuous integration server, related blogs, or sites on your own intranet.

Custom pages Custom pages in Personalized Navigation.

If your subscription administrator has enabled the feature , you may create custom apps using HTML and JavaScript to display reports, graphs, and other information. You can also group a selection of CA Agile Central apps into a customized page display.

Create custom pages for individual user environments, or share them across projects for multiple CA Agile Central users. Shared custom pages require administrator permissions .

The number of custom pages you can create are defined by the CA Agile Central edition you are using. Once created, you can edit or delete custom pages as your collaborative needs evolve.

Creating custom pages includes the following:

  3. You may edit the name of the copied page using the Edit Page option in the gear icon menu.

Share a Custom Page

As a subscription , workspace , or project administrator, you can create a custom page and share it with other users. When a custom page is shared, all users in selected projects will see the page available in their menus.

Sharing an existing shared page with new projects will prevent some project administrators from being able to edit this shared page until they are made project administrator or above in the project(s) you are adding for that page.

User Features

Users of a shared custom page can:

  • View, edit, and interact with data displayed in each app
  • View the settings of apps
  • Copy the shared page as a private page
  • Re-size, move, and sort app columns
  • Data displayed in a shared custom page is dependent on the user permissions you have been assigned for the workspace.
  • Column size, position, and sort order changes made by users are not stored in the custom page. Leaving the page will reset the columns in each app to their original positions.

Administrator Features

Administrators of a shared custom page can:

  • Change the column layout of the apps
  • Change the position of the apps
  • Add or delete apps
  • Change the settings of the apps
  • Share and unshare the page
Note: As an administrator, any and all changes that you make to a shared custom page will affect end users viewing that page. This includes even subtle changes like changing the sort order on a custom grid app. Make changes with caution to avoid user disruption.

Filter a Custom Page by an Iteration, Release, or Milestone

You may create a custom page that contains apps linked to a specific iteration , release , or milestone.

When this option is active, an iteration, release, or milestone drop-down menu will display at the top of the page.

Iteration or release drop-down

Use the Left arrow and Right arrow icons to change what release, iteration, or milestone the apps are collecting data from.

Compatible Apps

The following apps will display data specific to the release or iteration:

  • Custom List (formerly Custom Grid)
  • Custom HTML
  • Iteration Burndown
  • Iteration Burnup
  • Iteration Cumulative Flow
  • Iteration Defects by Priority
  • Iteration Defects by State
  • Iteration Summary
  • Kanban Board
  • Release Burnup
  • Release Cumulative Flow
  • Release Defect Trend

The following apps will display data specific to milestones :

  • Custom List (formerly Custom Grid)
  • Custom Board
  • Custom HTML

Note: Apps that are not affected by an iteration, release, or milestone filter may also be installed on filtered custom pages.

Note: If a custom page is created to show multiple projects across the same app (for example, three instances of Iteration Burndown set to depict the burndown for three different parent/child projects), then configured to show filters for iteration or release, the apps lose their scope to the individual projects and the global project scoping takes precedence. The result is all the apps will then scope to the single global project, and all three charts become identical.

View a Custom Page Full Screen

You may view all apps on a custom page without the CA Agile Central menus and navigation.

View the custom page fullscreen.

To view a page full screen:

  1. Go to the existing custom page and select the gear icon drop-down.
  2. Select the View Full Screen option.
  3. The display will expand to the size of your browser window.

To exit full screen, do one of the following:

  • Select the Back button on your browser
  • Select the Delete button on you keyboard
  • Select the gear icon drop-down and select Exit Full Screen
