Functionality Enhancements

  • Now, User Roles can be asserted in SSO. See examples.
  • Either of the following Names can be used (case insensitive):
    • UserRoles.
    • Roles.
    • UserGroups.
    • Groups. 


The Environment Conflicts Report has been enhanced.

“As an Environment Manager, I want a report showing all the conflicts for my Environment booking, so that I can resolve them.”

Environment Conflicts Report Enhancement

Manage how your TECR outages are impacting your Releases.

“As a Release Manager, I want a report showing which Releases are impacted by TECR outages and the accountable Environment Managers, so I can be informed ahead of time and ask for the outage dates to be changed.”
