    Hi, I want to know how the "Usage" field is calculated. Which fields in the database(repository) are used, etc. I downloaded the source code but I don't find where the data access and the calculations are made. Is it an algorithm that Niku dosen't want to reveal ?

    Thanks for your help

    Peter

      OWB is not a product that connects to a database or a repository, it persists to RMP or XML files.  Niku (now CA) does have a totally separate product that allows OWB to connect to their Clarity product. 

      With regards to the calculation of Usage it is the total of Actuals + Estimates.

      Thank you for the infos, I am working with an old version of Niku WorkBench that uses a repository.

      Can you tell me where I can find the calculations related to the View definition(Usage field, duration field, etc.) in the source code? (Which file)

      I know how to calculate Usage, I just want to see where the view definition options are located in the source code, and understand how they work.

      Thanks again
