When I need to use Softagram desktop for pull request review?
Softagram Impact Report for larger pull requests are automatically abstracted to provide meaningful information in one glance. This abstraction then hides the detailed level dependencies and impacts.
In those cases, it's possible to open same impact report to Softagram desktop and browse freely the detailed changes done in that given pull request.
Steps to Open pull request in Softagram desktop
- Find pull request ID from Softagram Impact Report
See example view below from GitHub, pull request 1120
2. Open Softagram desktop and "open model" menu
From Open Model, you can open pull request model by either selecting pull request from drop-down menu, or typing the pull request number to the search bar and selecting correct model. See picture below for example (pr 1120)
3. See and browse pull request in Softagram desktop
Softagram desktop opens automatically comparison view for the pull request, showing added (green), changed (yellow) and removed (red) elements and dependencies.
First view consists of changed file level elements, and user can freely browse the different views, see example below (How to use Softagram desktop, see help: http://help.softagram.com/quick-guide/basic-usage )
All dependency changes, also towards not changed elements (seen in grey) can be seen by activating "Outbound view", see example below.
You can see the described steps also from the video below!
Have fun, and remember to send feedback and improvement proposals to us!
