Introduction To Environment Impact Matrix

Environment Impact Matrix gives users a graphical view of Environments and shows whether they are Approved, Pending or Rejected against Releases.

Environment Impact Matrix was previously called Environments Impact Matrix.  
Now, administrators can use Title Names Customization to customize the name of the Environment module where it appears throughout Plutora.
Administrators can prevent users from viewing and booking Environments and Environment Groups outside their Portfolio Association by selecting the My Portfolio Association checkbox for the Restrict Site-Wide View of Environments user permission

Users add Environments to Releases in Release Manager.
