Functionality Enhancements

The first iteration of Stellar – Plutora’s fresh, new, user interface design model.

“As a user of Plutora, I want to create a Release, Environment, or any other kind of record with a single click.”

Redesigned Navigation Menu

Multiple enhancements to make running scripts easier.

“As a user of Plutora, I would like to be able to stop an unwanted load on my systems or the creation of bad data by stopping an automated Deployment Plan Activity or Integration Hub – API job.”

Integration Hub Enhancements

Three new enhancements for Plutora Analytics.

“As a user of Plutora, I want to schedule my reports and have the data automatically delivered by email.”

Plutora Analytics Enhancements

Two new API requests.

“As a user of Plutora, I want to retrieve information about a particular entity workflow or schema.” 

API Enhancements

  • Now, for the Release, Change, TECR, and TEBR entities, you can retrieve the:
    • Schema, which is the list of fields and field attributes (for example, what fields are mandatory, what fields cannot be edited, and so on)  for a specific entity type. Schemas can be used to build request bodies for creating and updating records via the API:
      • GET /schema/{Type}.
      • For example, GET /schema/Releases.
    • Workflow details for an entity type so you know what the valid workflow options are when using the API:
      • GET /workflow/{Type}/{id}.
      • For example, GET /workflow/Changes/{id}.

Manage your Release Activities and Criteria using a kanban board.

“As a user of Plutora, I want to visualize and manage my Release Activities and Criteria using an Agile project management tool.”

Deployment Plan Enhancements

Adjust the dates of Release Activities and Criteria when changing the dates of their Phases or Gates.

“As a user of Plutora, I want my Activities and Criteria to update when I change the dates of my Phases and Gates so I don’t have to update them manually.”

Adjust Dates of Release Activities and Criteria

  • Now, when you shift the end or due dates of an Enterprise, Project, or Independent Release’s Phase or Gate and save, a pop up will give you the option of moving the dates of the Release’s  Activities and Criteria as well.
Two new entity fields for Email Template Wizard.

“As a user of Plutora, I want to mention the name of the assigned user of a Change in my notification emails.
