Functionality Enhancements

Multiple security enhancements.

“As a Plutora Administrator, I want my users to be prevented from using easily-guessed passwords, so my site is more secure.”

Security Enhancements

Environment selections enhanced for TEBRs and Releases.

“As an Environment Manager, I want to select multiple Environments within an Environment Group on a TEBR form, so I can create multiple bookings at once.”

Environment Selection Enhancements

An enhancement for Changes Systems API.

“As a Release Manager, I want to use the API to manage my Impacted and Regression Systems for Changes, so they are automatically updated via an integration layer.”

Change System Dependencies API

  • Now, the users of Plutora’s API can retrieve the Downstream Dependency Systems of Changes using the following call:
    • GET /changes/{id}/systems
Multiple enhancements for the System user interface.

As a Release Manager, I want to add an Impacted System to a Change and automatically see all the associated Downstream Systems as Regression Systems, so that I am informed of regression risks.

System Enhancements

A Release Manifest enhancement.

“As a Release Manager, I want to add comments to my Enterprise Release’s child releases, so that my users can track instructions and make sure Stakeholders are aware of their next actions.”
