Functionality Enhancements

Customizations have been renamed and reordered.

“As a Release Manager, I want Plutora’s Customizations to be grouped by functionality and be clearly named, so that they are easier to use.”

Customizations Enhancements

  • Now, Plutora’s Customizations have been:
    • Grouped together if they are used together, such as custom fields, custom lists, and statuses.
    • Renamed to better reflect what they do.
Four new external API requests for Initiative Management (IM).

“As a Release Manager, I want to use the API to retrieve and update my IM Form Instance comments, so they are automatically updated via an integration layer.”

IM Form Instance API Comments

  • Now, the users of Plutora’s API can manage the comments of Initiative Management Form Instances, using the {type} or {itemType} IMFormInstance:
    • GET /comments/{type}/{id}
      • Retrieve an IM Form Instance’s comments.
    • POST /comments
      • Add comments to an IM Form Instance.
    • POST /comments/{itemType}/BulkPostComments
      • Add the same comment to multiple IM Form Instances.
    • PATCH /comments/{id}
      • Update an IM Form Instance’s comment.


Edit in Deployment Plan Timeline view.

“As a Deployment Manager, I want to edit all the fields of my Activities and Milestones in the Timeline view, so I don’t have to navigate back to the Grid view.”

Timeline View Editing

  • Now, in Deployment Plan Activities Tab’s Timeline view, clicking on an Activity or Milestone will open an editing panel so that every field can be edited, similar to the Grid view.
