What is UsecaseEditor4TFS?
Use case is another component in inteGREAT4TFS which facilitates users by providing graphical overview of goals, users want to achieve by using the system. Use case models the goals of system/ (user) interactions. Users can create flow chart diagrams automatically simply by entering a textual use case; this provides visual verification of the narrative created. Users can define the use cases using various tools within the use case editor in order to create consistent structure, correct scenarios and links within, and to external use cases; the activity will be updated based on changes done to the use case narrative. Users can color code the different scenarios within a use case to visually different aspects in order to understand and validate the scenarios. Users can view all the Use cases along with their visual representations (diagrams) in a team project.
Modeling Use cases
Create a new use case file, start writing detailed narration, different options can be use from the toolbar given at the top to define use case flow appropriately. Whenever a new use case is created, work item is auto-created at TFS. User can view the created work item of use case and all the well-defined steps and diagram in the description Tab of a work item. User can also perform different operations on text from modeling toolbar such as Add Link, Edit Link, Delete Link, Font Family and Apply proper colors etc. User can also discard the changes of use case file.
Use case Version Management
Use case file can be saved locally or publish to TFS by using ‘Check-In Changes’ feature so that it maintains the version history of use case in source control. Use case file opens either in Read-Only mode or Checked-Out mode. In read-only mode, user can view use case in modeling layout, their linked work items as well as generate preview on it. User can also get the latest version of use case file from TFS using ‘Refresh’ feature at Folder Explorer toolbar.
Allow users to define Alternate and Exceptional scenarios in the use case flow. Main success scenario describes the most likely way a user may take to achieve the business goal. There may be other ways to perform a particular step or a sequence of steps. These flows are defined under Branch Operation.
Call Use Case
Allow user to link other use case with a step within Main Use case. User is allowed to link the New Use case and Existing Use case within a Main use case.
Allow users to define the reference from one step to another step in a use case. User can provide the references in both ways from top to bottom and bottom to top.
Allow user to link a new Smart Tag in use case. At times user is required to link existing Smart Tag with a step in use case. User is allowed to create multiple ‘Smart Tags’ with a step.
Multiple users can connect simultaneously to the Use Case repository. It ensures that one or more users don’t overwrite each other’s work. Users always have access to the latest versions of Use case and they should be written in such a way that they are easily unestand.
Powerful ‘Rich text editing’ with document generation
Good use cases improve communication by providing a context rich technique for describing functional requirements. Use case provides a structured editing environment for use case which is better than using an ordinary processor. It continue to use styles such as bold, Italic, font family, font color etc.
Rapid Color Config Visualization
Use case provide users and stakeholders the power to graphically visualize and review the use case along with its associated belongings that includes Branch, Call Use case and Smart Tags within use case using color config. Use case flow can be seen as Primary Flow, Primary and Other, No Border and Outline. Every individual flow as it’s on Color Config visualization.
Maintain Traceability between Use case and Work Items
Use case allows user to link use case with work items on TFS, offering better and more granular traceability throughout the project.
