Functionality Enhancements


The Phases/Gates Migration pop up provides four ways of migrating Phases and Gates.

As a Release Manager, I would like to move a release to a different parent release quickly and I do not want to lose any data, or make a decision around what associated items are to be discarded. I want to retain the ability to come back to this Release in the future and remove any unnecessary Phases, Gates, Activities, and Criteria.

Phases and Gates Migration

  • Previously, when moving a Project or Independent Release to a different Enterprise Release, Child Releases would automatically inherit Parent Release data. Users had to modify Phases, Gates, and their Activities and Criteria manually.
  • Now, users can specify how they want to retain, remove, or migrate Phases and Gates, and their associated Activities and Criteria with the new Phases/Gates Migration pop up for Project, and Independent Releases (and the Release Manifest tab for Enterprise Releases).
  • The Enable Child Releases to inherit Parent Release Data checkbox has been removed from the Enterprise Release Setup Customization as it is no longer necessary.
Alternate descriptions for custom fields.

“Users had to hover their mouse cursor over tooltip icons to see custom field descriptions. Now that the field’s description is easily visible below the field, our users enter more accurate data.”

Display Custom Field Descriptions Under Label

Swagger has been implemented for the Plutora API.

“As a Release Manager, it’s important for me to understand how the Plutora API works. Swagger gives us sample code and even allows me to make changes to our live data.”
