Dashboard/report change release management ideas
Hi YF community, I'm seeking some suggestions.
We provide multiple clients with a fixed set of dashboards/reports etc to analyse their data.
Typically if a change is required we just action it, however management want to introduce more procedure around change request, approval and release.
Given the nature of Yellowfin draft/publish and that changes can range from very minor formatting to intricately linked dashboards & reports, I am interested to hear from other users that have similar situation with development release processes for Yellowfin reports.
How do/can you technically manage in Yellowfin to develop and implement multiple changes as a release?
The thoughts I had were to:
A) Make changes to reports and leave in draft mode until release date. Then publish all drafts individually at one time.
B) Make use of import/export.
+quick to release in single go
+can export existing reports as rollback
-would require a dev enviroment
-we have encountered issues with this function in the past, so don't have 100% faith to override existing reports
