Adaptation of Compliance Reports for the new "index" extensions.

Compatibility matrix

This release of Report Generator GUI and for Report Generator for Dashboards functions with the following:

CAST RestAPI≥ 1.12.xMandatory
MIPS Reduction Index≥ 20200518

These extensions are required for Compliance Report generation. Depending on what "standard" you are targeting in your Compliance Report, you can install a combination of extensions:

  • To generate Compliance Reports for MIPS standards, you MUST always install the MIPS Reduction Index extension.
  • To generate Compliance Reports for CISQ, OMG-ASCQM and OWASP standards, you can install either the CISQ, OMG-ASCQM and OWASP extensions or the Quality Standards Mapping extension. If both the CISQ, OMG-ASCQM and OWASP extensions and the Quality Standards Mapping extension are installed, data is automatically taken from the CISQ, OMG-ASCQM and OWASP extensions at all times.
If you are using CAST AIP Console ≥ 1.14.0, the Quality Standards Mapping extension is installed with all new source code versions, however, you should ensure that the correct release of the extensions is used.

Resolved issues

No customer bugs reported for fix in this release.

Table component updates

The changes below have been made so that data can be taken from either the CISQ, OMG-ASCQM and OWASP extensions or the Quality Standards Mapping extension for Compliance Reports. If both the CISQ, OMG-ASCQM and OWASP extensions and the Quality Standards Mapping extension are installed, data is automatically taken from the CISQ, OMG-ASCQM and OWASP extensions at all times. There is no need to make any changes to the templates themselves.

QUALITY_STANDARDS_EVOLUTION

The table component listed below will now function with a Business Criterion Name, shortName or an ID (for CISQ, OMG-ASCQM and OWASP extensions) or a standard (for the Quality Standards Mapping extension) - see also Table components for Report Generator 1.16.0. Results will be searched for a Business Criterion by the Name, then by shortName, then by the ID, but if not found, it will search instead for a standard.

  • QUALITY_STANDARDS_EVOLUTION

If the option MORE=true is set with a Business Criterion shortName (for example CISQ), the direct Technical Criterion of CISQ will not be listed, but instead the Business Criterion associated to CISQ will be displayed (CISQ-Security, CISQ-Reliability, CISQ-Maintainability, CISQ-Performance-Efficiency) with their associated Technical Criterion. I.e. the list of Technical Criteria will be dispatched in the various Business Criteria instead of in a big list. This presentation will therefore be similar to the presentation provided when a "standard" is used in the Compliance Report.

QUALITY_TAGS_RULES_EVOLUTION

The table component listed below will now function with a Business Criterion Name or an ID (for CISQ, OMG-ASCQM and OWASP extensions) or a standard (for the Quality Standards Mapping extension) - see also Table components for Report Generator 1.16.0Results will be searched for a Business Criterion by the Name or ID, but if not found, it will search instead for a standard.

  • QUALITY_TAGS_RULES_EVOLUTION

RULES_LIST_STATISTICS_RATIO, LIST_RULES_VIOLATIONS_BOOKMARKS, LIST_RULES_VIOLATIONS_BOOKMARKS_TABLE

The table components listed below will now accept a Name (for a Business Criterion) or shortName (for a Technical Criterion) in the METRICS parameter - see also Table components for Report Generator 1.16.0.

  • RULES_LIST_STATISTICS_RATIO
  • LIST_RULES_VIOLATIONS_BOOKMARKS
  • LIST_RULES_VIOLATIONS_BOOKMARKS_TABLE
