SPE - Seabay Polarion Extensions

 SPE is a modular set of tools for using the Polarion API with a thin abstraction layer. Access the Polarion artifacts Workitem, Document, Plan, Testrun, User, Project (and more ...) in an unified way with only one method call. No matter you are working with Classic Wiki Pages or Live Report Pages.


This extension is related to the Classic Wiki technology that is now outdated and replaced by our new LivePage format. We still maintain Classic Wiki but we are no longer extending its feature set.

Please consider implementing the use case you are looking for using a LivePage.



We offer multiple modules for your specific needs. So you pay only for the functionality you really need. We offer the following modules:


  • SPE-Basic
    The very heart of SPE. This module is obligatory, as it is the base of all other modules. The Basic Module gives you an enhanced unified API for accessing Polarion Objects.
  • SPE-Tracer
    The Tracer is your partner when you have to create Multilevel Tracetables or Trace Reports.
  • SPE-Documents (planned for 2016)
    Want to have more control over Polarion documents? Here is your solution.
  • SPE-Project Management (planned for 2016)
    Your control over Polarion project configurations. You name it.


The SPE API gives you a unified API for all polarion artifacts: Work Items, Documents, Plans, Testruns, User, Projects and more. Everything is at your disposal and you can access them all with the same concise API. The API is optimized to support you on rendering HTML pages, embedding them as widgets and coding in velocity.

Our design goal was to reduce your existing velocity codebase at least 50%. Depending on your wikicode the enhancement can be much more. For example, the build-in 3 Level Traceability table in polarion has more than 200 LOC. our Tracer has regardless of table depth only 25 LOC. 
This means: less code to read, less code to maintain, and more functionality to gain.


You can use the SPE out-of-the-box. Our coding manuals put you directly into usecase based scenarios. SPE has more than 12 man-years of Polarion consulting experience inside. We know your usecases and what you want to get out of your polarion system. We analyzed and optimized hundreds of wikipages for our customers. SPE developed as framework and best practice approach during many consulting sessions.


We created a full-fledged API documentation, a coding manual and a revolutionary build-in help system for each Module complete with tutorials and example source code. Dive in by copy+paste already working examples like Userlists or multilevel-level tracetables. Adapt them to your needs and if you do not know how to use a function use our help function to see the documentation directly in your wikipage!
