Suspicious Items


For better impact analysis, Orcanos  have introduced two new fields: Suspicious Indication and Suspicious Information


It assists the user in assessing the impact of a change when the linked item is updated. Means if the target is updated, the source items will be marked as suspicious

The above 2 Fields are non-editable and filled by the system automatically.

Lets take an example here:

Suppose Item B(Source) –> Item A(Target)

Item C(Source) –> Item A(Target) and

Item A(Source) –> Item D(Target)

Now if there is an update in Item A (Name, Status and Description only), the linked Items – Item B and Item C will be marked as suspicious.

The Impact is presented by the Icon   in the Suspicious Indication column of the Work Item Grid Results.

In the Work Item Details Page, the Suspicious Indication should be marked as 1 and Suspicious Information should have the value as Date & Time, Item ID which was updated.

Reset the Suspicious Indication 

In case the user wants to reset the Suspicious Indication, Click on the Icon  in the Work Item Grid

The Confirmation pop-up should be opened

Clicking on Ok Button, would reset the values. The Suspicious Indication should no more have the Icon and has value 0 on work item details Page. Suspicious Information should become blank after reset.


Use these fields in combination to get the Email Notifications on Suspicious Indication set 1

User can also configure to get the Alerts to list all the Items which are marked Suspicious
