Introduction

Enterprise Pack is a framework for extending Parasoft DTP functionality. The primary application in Enterprise Pack is Extension Designer, which enables you to create custom extensions for DTP, as well as deploy Parasoft's pre-made extensions, to perform additional post-analysis analysis. Extensions can produce custom reports for compliance initiatives, trigger processes in third-party systems, and anything else you need in order to deliver software that meets your business objectives.

Installation

Enterprise Pack is installed with Parasoft DTP. Refer to New DTP Installations for details.

Upgrading

Depending on the version you are upgrading from, the DTP installer will automatically back up and restore DTP Enterprise Pack as part of the upgrade process. Refer to the Upgrading section for details.

Accessing Extension Designer

Choose Extension Designer from the settings menu (gear icon) to access Extension Designer interfaces.

Alternatively, you can enter the host and port number in a browser address bar to open Enterprise Pack applications:

http://<host>:8314

If SSL is enabled, the protocol will be https. The actual port number depends on the availability of the port. See Requirements.

Configuration

The installation process automatically connects Enterprise Pack to DTP using default port settings, but you can manually configure Extension Designer for use within your DTP environment, including:

  • Connection to DTP
  • Proxy settings (if applicable)
  • Email server settings

From Extension Designer, choose Settings from the gear icon menu to access the configuration page.

See DTP Enterprise Pack Configuration for details.

Terms and Concepts

The following terms describe components and concepts associated with DTP Enterprise Pack.

Service

In the context of this technology, a service is a group of one or more flows or artifacts that can perform specialized tasks. Services can provide custom REST endpoints, custom widgets for DTP, trigger actions in third-party system, etc.

Services in DTP Enterprise Pack should not be confused with web services or components that are more generally described as services.

Flow

Flows are one or more nodes that can perform specialized tasks. Flows can be grouped into services to more evenly distribute data processing across endpoints, which results in more stable execution.

Node

Nodes are the basic building blocks for creating flows and services that can perform specialized tasks.

Artifact

Artifacts are complete services or flows that can be downloaded and installed from the Parasoft customer portal. See Downloading and Installing Artifacts.

Model

If you want to perform custom calculations within the context of a flows or services, you can create a model, which defines the template for the data used to perform the specific type of calculation. Specific instances of a model are called profiles, which can be used in a flow to carry out the custom calculation. See Working with Model Profiles for additional information.

Profile

Each instance of a model is a profile. Profiles must be paired with flows that can consume the data associated with the specific type of calculation. See Working with Model Profiles for additional information. 

Advanced Configuration Topics

The following configuration options are also available.

Configuring Log Rotation for the Database

You can configure the DTP Enterprise Pack database to archive log files, which eases system administration resources. The DTP Enterprise Pack startup process enables the ability to rotate database logs, but your system administrator must perform additional tasks for the database to begin archiving logs. In addition, the process is specific to the operating system running Enterprise Pack.

Linux

The logrotate command configures and starts log rotation using a configuration file. The following snippet is an example configuration file–your actual configuration file should be written according to your organization's needs:

"<DTP_DATA_DIR>/logs/mongodb.log" {
  size 5M
  missingok
  rotate 5
  compress
  delaycompress
}
  1. Make sure that DTP Enterprise Pack is installed and running.
  2. Create a configuration file and save it to the local machine.
  3. Run the following command:

    logrotate -v --state ~/parasoft/dtpservices/logs/status.tmp ~<path to your configuration file>

    status.tmp is not required; you can point to any location where you have write permission. 

Windows

The logrotate command is not native on Windows. You can download a utility that provides this functionality (e.g., LogRotateWin from https://sourceforge.net/projects/logrotatewin/). A configuration file is also required to configure and start rotation. The following snippet is an example configuration file–your actual configuration file should be written according to your organization's needs:

"<DTP_DATA_DIR>/logs/mongodb.log" {
  size 5M
  missingok
  rotate 5
  compress
  delaycompress
  postrotate
      "<DTP_INSTALL>\dtpservices\mongodb\bin\mongo.exe"  --port 8316 --eval "db.runCommand('logRotate')" admin
  endscript
}
  1. Make sure that DTP Enterprise Pack is installed and running.
  2. Make sure that a log rotation utility for Windows is installed. These instructions assume you are using LogRotateWin.
  3. Create a configuration file and save it to the local machine.
  4. Run the following command:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Ken Salter\LogRotate>logrotate.exe -v --state "C:\temp\status.tmp" <path to your configuration file>

    status.tmp is not required; you can point to any location where you have write permission.  

Branding Enterprise Pack

You can add a custom logo to the Enterprise Pack header. To add a custom logo, replace the png at /public/lib/custom-logo.png with your company logo. 

The image file must be named "custom-logo.png". The dimensions of the image container is 300px by 35px.
