If IBM Report Builder (RB) is being used and feed by IBM Lifecycle Query Engine (LQE), a meta-model refresh is required
to recognize artifacts and data types used by Jira objects. This refresh may require up to 15-30 minutes to complete
in larger environments as it fetches not only new Jira resources but all existing resources as well, and this is why it is recommended to trigger it
as soon as possible . The RB data source which requires this meta-model update is called
Lifecycle Query Engine
and you can follow the steps of How to refresh meta-model for the Data Source
procedure to refresh it. In case Global Configurations are being used, the data source to refresh is
Lifecycle Query Engine scoped by a configuration
and if it is not listed, follow the steps of the next topic.
Once meta-model is refreshed, the only change on Jira that will require a second refresh is the creation/association of a new project with remote projects. If the updating process takes too much time on your environment or you just cannot wait for the scheduled refresh to be launched, you can repeat the steps above to refresh it manually.
Official RB documentation says RB should get this configuration-aware data source automatically since the moment the first IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management project is Configuration Management enabled; however, if for some reason this data source is not available, you need to enable it on your own:
Connect to data sourcearea, expand the
Select a default data sourcecombo.
If LQE scoped by a configuration data source is listed, there is nothing else to do. Otherwise:
Connect to data sourcelabel within the area the
Select a default data sourcecombo is.
Select a default data sourcecombo again.
This time, LQE scoped by a configuration must be listed. This is the data source RB users need to use when like to build reports based on a configuration.
