Project and team hierarchy in ICR

The campaign is the highest layer in the Integrated Content Review object hierarchy. The project is the second layer in the object hierarchy and the asset is the third layer. In fact, an asset is the basic unit of work — a work item — in the Integrated Content Review workflow.

Multiple levels of project nesting are supported.

Assets are actively managed through review cycles and drive all statuses in the campaign. For example, if an asset is late, the status of the parent campaign automatically becomes red. If all the constituent assets of a campaign are on time or green, the status of the campaign is green. Therefore, the status of a campaign is derived bottom-up instead of top-down.

Team member inheritance

Teams are built in a bottom-up fashion. Team members at any level in the campaign hierarchy include team members from lower levels. In other words, a campaign includes all members of a project. A project, in turn, includes all members of the assets within it.

Additionally, at any level in the campaign, a new member can be added directly to the team list. These new members have no responsibilities towards the campaign, but they receive notifications when statuses change. They also get access to the solution interface so that they can proactively see how the campaign is progressing.

Setting up the ICR development environment

The Integrated Content Review solution ships with a solution interface and building blocks that you can customize as per your organization’s requirements. Before you set out to customize these components, you must first set up your development environment. Setting up the ICR development environment involves the following broad steps:

    • Set up prerequisites
    • Locate the solution interface and required dependencies
    • Understand available projects
    • Set up available projects in Flash Builder
    • Set up Java projects in Eclipse
    • Build and deploy the solution interface
