You can configure configure dotTEST  DTP DTP Engine to collect authorship data during analysis to facilitate task assignment. The data can be sent to the DTP server where additional analysis components, such as the Process Intelligence Engine (PIE), can be leveraged to facilitate defect remediation and development optimization. 

You can configure configure dotTEST  to to assign authorship based on information from source control, XML files that directly map sources to authors, and/or the current local user. 


If one of the selected options does not determine an author author, authorship will be determined based on the next option selected. If an author cannot be determined, the user is set as "unknown". Likewise, if none of these options is selected, the user is set as "unknown."


Code Block
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
  <!DOCTYPE authorship (View Source for full doctype...)> 
      <!-- assigns all files named: "foo/src/" to "author1" --> 
      <file author="author1" path="foo/src/" />
Wildcard ExpressionDescription
Assigns all files that have names starting with any character (except /) and ends with "oo/src/"
**.csAssigns all *.cs files in any directory
**/src/**Assigns every file whose path has a folder named "src"
src/**Assigns all files located in directory "src"
src/**/Test*Assigns all files in directory "src" whose name starts with "Test" (e.g., "src/some/other/dir/TestFile.c")
titleThe mapping order matters!

The mapping file is read from top to bottom, so beginning with the most specific mapping ensures that authorship will map to the correct files.
