Displaying views in itemis ANALYZE

After you have set up your project and your environment, various views help you to perform different tasks. Depending on the task at hand, you need a suitable set of views. To support the most common use cases, ANALYZE provides a couple of default views in different perspectives:

  • the Tracing perspective (default perspective), allowing to work with links and to execute queries,
  • the Configuration perspective, allowing to manage configurations, and
  • the Analysis perspective, allowing to analyze traceability data.

These perspectives can be opened in any of the following ways:

  • via the shortcuts to the right of the Eclipse tool bar, if the perspective has been opened before, or
  • via Window → Open Perspective.

Within ANALYZE perspectives, the second option will show a list of all ANALYZE perspectives. Otherwise you can select the perspectives in a dialog opened with Window → Open Perspective → Other.

Depending on the selected perspective, some views will be opened by default. You can open other views by selecting

  • Window → Show View → ANALYZE …


  • Window → Show View → Other → itemis ANALYZE → ANALYZE …

in the main menu, where ANALYZE … represents the name of the particular view.

ANALYZE provides the following views:
  • ANALYZE Project Overview
  • ANALYZE Dashboard
  • ANALYZE Dashboard Details
  • ANALYZE Editor
  • ANALYZE Explorer
  • ANALYZE Favorites
  • ANALYZE Issues
  • ANALYZE Overview
  • ANALYZE Queries
  • ANALYZE Query Results
  • ANALYZE Search
  • ANALYZE Selection History

The individual views will be explained in the subsequent sections in the context of the functionalities they are supporting.

The ANALYZE Configuration perspective and most other Eclipse perspectives will open editors in the center area of the Eclipse workbench window. In the Tracing and Analysis perspectives, the editor area is minimized by default. It will be restored automatically if you open an editor in Eclipse, e.g., by double-clicking on an artifact in the ANALYZE Explorer that has an Eclipse editor associated with it. The editor area usually remains visible even if no editor is currently open. However, the Tracing and Analysis perspectives will automatically minimize the editor area whenever there is no open editor.
