Tuleap offers a powerful open source issue tracking tool. This module enables teams create, update and monitor issues and provides project management capabilities like project reports and graphs. Designed to be re-designed, Tuleap Issue Tracking empowers individual project team, providing complete control over their workflow.

When searching specific information, Tuleap Tracker Query language (TQL), is the most powerful way to query Tuleap Trackers. TQL is inspired by SQL, the language used to retrieve information from databases. TQL lets you create very specific queries, so you see only those artifacts that are relevant to your needs.
Making simple or advanced searches in Tuleap trackers was possible tracker by tracker up to now. And here is the new module Cross-Tracker-Search. It allows you to query multiple projects or trackers (or both) in one single search. You can quickly find issues of interest to you in one or several projects.

Disclaimer: Cross tracker search is currently under development, while it already provides interesting query capabilities, its still in early stages.

First steps to Project Portfolio Management

Early steps to Project Portfolio Management, Tuleap Cross Tracker Search combines data from various sources in a single view.

Generally speaking, a portfolio is a collection of projects grouped together, because they have something in common. Increasing visibility and facilitating decision-making, the objectives of project portfolio management are:

  • Planning and tracking multiple projects within a single view
  • Managing resource allocation
