FAQ

How can I try BluInsights?

You need to register first using a professional email. Your account will be activated within a few hours and you will be able to log in and browse all the features with a ready-to-use demo project.

 

How can I upload my projects to BluInsights?

You need to upgrade your account. Contact us to discuss this further.

 

​Can I have BluInsights installed in my own infrastructure?

Yes. BluInsights can be installed in the environment of your choice. Contact us to discuss this further.

 

Is BluInsights available in other languages?

BluInsights is only available in English. However, we have made sure that all fields you may wish to complete can handle pretty much any language.

 

Is my data backed up in case of an emergency?

Data is backed up in nearly real-time and written to multiple disks instantly physically separated from the primary servers to ensure fault tolerance. We can perform full backup recovery in the event of a system-wide emergency.

 

How do I update my name, email, or password?

Update your Profile in a snap! Click on your avatar in the upper right corner of BluInsights and in order to edit your information, select Profile in Menu.

 

How can I view just my assignments?

Keep track of your responsibilities by viewing your assignments using a simple filter (assigned to = “your name”). You can also save this filter to reuse it in all the pages.

 

How can I invite team members to my project?

On the People page, you can build your team by inviting them individually by email.

 

Can I add files to existing projects?

Yes. This can be done through the Catch-up module.

 

Can I add extra information (more insights) to the uploaded files?

Yes. This can be done through customized labels and descriptions which can be manually inserted by selecting files or using the bulk import based on Excel files.

 

Can I preview my files directly in BluInsights?

It is possible to preview almost all file types (not MS Office files, e.g. .xlsx, Docx…) by clicking on their path in the tables or by clicking on the “View” icon when selected.

 

How can I find duplicated files?

If your project contains files having the same names, a tab called Homonym will list them on the Statistics page.

 

Does BluInsights handle embedded ZIP files?

Yes. If your initial archive contained embedded ZIP files, BluInsights will warn you on the Statistics page and will propose a feature to extract them. The project metrics are also updated at the end of the extraction.

 

What are the supported languages?

The complete list of the supported platforms, languages, and extensions is available here.

 

Is it possible to change the classification result?

Yes. This can be done by simply selecting the file(s) and editing the detected type.

 

Do I need to add extensions to my files?

No. If you upload files without extensions (which is frequent in Mainframe, iSeries and OpenVMS projects), you can leverage the classification to identify the underlying programming languages. The dependencies and cyclomatic complexity analysis will also rely on this feature.

 

How can I find the dependencies of one or multiple programs?

This can be done in the dependencies graph either by double-clicking on the program (this will select all its dependencies) or by exporting the program to a subgraph and incrementally discovering its neighbors (parents/children).

 

Is it possible to download my source code files?

Yes. Navigate to Assets > Statistics, click on the “…” button on the upper right corner of the page and select “Download files”. Some browsers may block the download so you need to explicitly allow pop-ups.
