Lighthouse Virtual Appliance Beta Program

We are pleased to announce our beta program for our Lighthouse Enterprise Virtual Appliance. What does that mean? It means that you can now host Lighthouse Enterprise behind your firewall. This is the same Lighthouse Enterprise that we host on line as well, with the same functionality, features, and collaboration. But because the Lighthouse Virtual Appliance sits behind your firewall, I imagine it will be faster.

If you are interested in joining our beta program or learning more, drop us a line at support (at)

New Dashboard: My Assignments

With our latest release, La Jolla 4.4, we added a new dashboard, My Assignments, that lets you see all objects currently assigned to you across all your projects. By object, I mean any requirements, defects, tasks, issues, change requests, and test cases that you need to deal with.

If you are an existing Lighthouse Standard user, it is very easy to add that dashboard to both your Account and Project settings:

1. Log in (or register) to your Lighthouse Account
2. Select Preferences
3. Select Dashboards
4. Select your project
5. Select 'Edit Dashboard'
6. Check 'My Assignments'

You can then change the positions of the dashboards as well. Because this dashboard is so useful, I recommend using it for all your projects.

NOTE: If you don't see the 'My Assignments' dashboard, then you need to either upgrade to Lighthouse Standard or talk to your Lighthouse Account Administrator about granting you access.
