Customizing of the PkitMetrics.xml

The PkitMetrics.xml comes with the Stages Installation (v.6 and higher) and is stored in the following directory:

[Stages directory]\conf\metrics.xml

In order to customize it, proceed with the following steps:

  1. You need to insert your Server-URL instead of “http://localhost:8080” - The further steps are necessary if you originally installed Stages with an earlier version than 6.3 and just made an update of your Stages. - Login to Stages as root User (Administrator). Search for “Metric User” in the User-Application, if there is no user with this name, create a Stages User with the name “Metric User” on top level and set the password to “pass”. - There is no license necessary for this user but it is important that the name and the password is exactly the same as in the PkitMetrics.xml. - Go to the settings of the Metric User and set the “preferred process version” to “Working Revision”. - Create a “MetricRole” in your top level workspace “Company”. - To proceed, please choose the substeps regarding to your Stages version - Stages Version 6: Give the following permissions to the “MetricRole” - Files - Processes - Process Version - Workspaces - Stages Version 5: Give the following permissions to the “MetricRole” - Files - Process Version - Process Workbench - Projects - Assign the Metric User to the MetricRole if it is not assigned.
