"De-/Activate Selection" Options in Dialog (Application Config)


Hi there :wave:

i wanted to add many projects to an Application. Then i realized, that although i am able to filter and display a subgroup of fitting projects … i cannot add them all in one go.

Please relieve me from the hassle to click on 30 (random guess) boxes plus wait for the server to react to my click

For example: A button/checkbox could be placed where my elaborate hand/machine drawn art has placed it in followin mockup :sunglasses: (typo: replace “All” with “selection”) Further reasoning below picture. Maybe you see a different solution for my original “challenge”

Try to describe the problem or opportunity you are seeing and why it matters. The closer you stick to this topic template, and the more information you provide, the better chance you have to generate a real discussion.

A few questions to help you:

  • What are you trying to accomplish?
    Actually i want to see an overview of my Portfolio containing also the coverage and the duplication metrics. After realizing that these are not displayed in Portfolio Breakdown, but are displayed in Application-Projects i wanted to add all/many projects in to an application :blush: Then i found out how tedious that would be. :cry:
  • Why does this matter to you?
    Because i was asked how to accomplish this :roll_eyes: Obviously someone thought it would be helpful for their thought processeses to see the portfolio breakdown with coverage/duplication percentages
  • How would that look in SonarQube? Alternatives?
    See above / Idk
  • How would we know it works well?
    Huh? I dont grok that question. Ok i try: Maybe because it is a rather default-ish ux pattern? :thinking:
  • Why should it be a priority now?
    I dont do priorities. :person_shrugging:


//edit: I deliberately chose to frame it this way. I could also have asked for adding the two metrics to portfolio breakdown. But then i thought: This ux pattern is helpful in applications, despite my original challenge. Also i do not want to discuss why these two metrics are (or are not) in Portfolio breakdown.

But now i am wondering: Were they left out deliberately? If yes: why? :thinking: (my shoulder-angel comments: this is a separate thread, daniel! :joy: )

Hello @daniel

Thank you for your insightful explanation. The application feature’s objective is to consolidate various projects into a unified entity. The primary aim is to oversee multiple projects that share a common life cycle, hence the omission of a “Select all” feature. You will find more details on our documentation.

How do you perceive this application definition within your specific use case? Do the 30 projects indeed operate within a unified life cycle?

It appears you’re utilizing the application views akin to portfolios. I’m curious: what drives the need to monitor coverage and duplication metrics across these 30 projects?



Hi Alexander,

you are absolutely correct. I utilized the application to generate the overview i was asked to establish.

No, the projects do not have a unified life cycle.

I am sorry, i cannot reply in respect to the motive as i do not know (and i will not gather this information for you) I have no idea which basic need made someone ask me if i can generate such an overwiew. :person_shrugging:

But it was tedious to setup. Because the ux workflow requires to acknowledge every click. Which made me post the initial Message.
