Keyword project


The project property is mandatory and should be the first property in a project file. It is used to capture basic attributes such as the project id, name and the expected time frame.

Be aware that the dates for the project period default to UTC times. See interval2 for details.

Syntax project [<id>] <name> [<version>] <interval2> [{ <attributes> }]
Arguments id [ID]
An optional ID. If you ever want to reference this property, you must specify your own unique ID. If no ID is specified one will be automatically generated. These IDs may become visible in reports, but may change at any time. You may never rely on automatically generated IDs.
name [STRING]
The name of the project
version [STRING]
An optional version ID. This can be something simple as "4.2" or an ID tag of a revision control system. If not specified, it defaults to "1.0".
See interval2 for details.
