Represents the report generated corresponding to a release object. See Report object types for the list of currently supported report types.
Plugins can be used to report data from data providers to DevOps Insight by virtue of implementing certain procedure interfaces. For example, a plugin can report user story data to DevOps Insight by running a JQL on a regular basis, which in turn can be used by the user story widget to display user story metrics in the planning stage.
The key features here represent a dictionary of fields required to create the RCC procedure interface in the plugin. Salient fields are described below.
datasourceNamerepresents the data source. For example
reportObjectTyperepresents the release object section. In the snippet below the release object is build.
