DTP Enterprise Pack is a suite of process intelligence tools for defining how risk associated with the software under development is measured, reported, and addressed. The tools enable you to configure development policies and services that define risk thresholds and possible actions when those thresholds are crossed. Development Testing Platform collects raw observations from various infrastructure sources throughout the SDLC, correlates and processes it according to your policies. The combination of policies and data-processing artifacts can automatically populate reports in Development Testing Platform, prioritize remediation tasks, trigger processes in third-party systems, etc.

DTP Enterprise Pack includes the following tools:

  • Extension Designer (formerly PIE Slice Designer): This component enables you to define Process Intelligence logic that processes data. The Extension Designer leverages Development Testing Platform APIs, as well as APIs from third-party systems (e.g., Jira), to query data for processing and generate reports.
  • Policy Center: This is the interface for encapsulating a group of non-functional requirements, such as software security objectives, coding standards compliance, reliability goals, etc., into policies. Practices for automatically monitoring policies, such as static analysis, unit testing, etc., are also configured in Policy Center. Additionally, Policy Center enables you to set quality gates, which measure compliance with one or more policies at specific points in the SDLC. 

What's New in DTP Enterprise Pack 5.3.3

Improvements to the MISRA Compliance Pack DTP Workflow

The MISRA Compliance Pack is a suite of assets that help organizations demonstrate compliance with MISRA C:2012 guidelines. We've made several improvements to the compliance pack in this release, including enhanced widgets and easier deployment. See MISRA Compliance Pack for DTP 5.3.3.

Requirements Traceability Report for JIRA

Leveraging the new DTP requirements traceability rest API, this report provides pass/fail information about tests and performs additional correlation that extend traceability from your quality artifacts to your JIRA system. The report is shipped with a new widget for visualizing the traceability data.

The report supports JIRA out of the box, but Parasoft Professional Services can leverage REST APIs to integrate with other systems of record, such as DOORS and Polarion.

This artifact replaces the Traceability Report, which is no longer supported.

Parameter Values Endpoint

The new Parameter Values endpoint node improves usability by simplifying the process of creating custom widgets. The endpoint node also includes a new interface for generating new UUIDs, which ensures that widgets do not conflict with any other endpoints in the service. See the Creating Custom DTP Widgets Using Extension Designer tutorial for information on how to use this node.

Additional Widgets and Components

The following components were added or improved in this release:

Full Support for Reverse Proxy Environments

Reverse proxies are sometimes used to ensure high availability or strengthen network security. The reverse proxy configuration interface greatly eases the pain of integrating DTP Enterprise Pack into your development environment. See Reverse Proxy.

Additional Infrastructure Improvements

Improved Application Navigation

We've implemented greater consistency navigating core DTP functionality and DTP Enterprise Pack applications, including the following changes:

  • Admin settings have been moved to the Settings (gear icon) menu.
  • Enhanced server and network configuration settings page.

  • No labels
