Functionality Enhancements

Use real-time data to make decisions and initiate improvements to reduce outages and prevent delays.

“As an Environment Manager, I want the ability to view the current status of all my Environments so I can see if they are online or offline and the duration of any unplanned outages they have had over the last 24 hours.”

Health Check Dashboard

  • Now, users can set up and configure recurring tests for their Environments and use the Health Check Dashboard to:
    • View the current health status of any Environment.
    • Filter by Environments, Environment Groups, or Systems.
    • View each Environment’s health status over the past 24 hours.
    • View the list of impacted bookings and TECRs as a result of any unplanned outage.
  • Health Check data also appears in each Environment.

“As a Release Manager, I want to manage my custom fields using the API.”

“As a Test Manager, I want to give permission to view and use a Project to my whole User Group, rather than having to add one user at a time.”
