Bug Fixes

Environment Requests

Problem Fix
When modifying the Release Name on an existing Environment Change Request, the update is not being saved to the record. The updated Release Name now properly saves to the corresponding Environment Change Request.

Environment Schedule

Problem Fix
When clicking the cog icon in the ‘Environment Schedule’ window to display the activities, the end date viewed will extend. The end date viewed stays unchanged when the cog icon is clicked.
When Environment Allocations have been approved, the Environment Allocation Schedule in the Environment window does not reflect the change of status. Environment Allocation Schedule now correctly reflects the Environment Allocations have been approved.


Problem Fix
When a release type is deleted, the deleted release type still appeared in the ‘Release Type Summary Report’. ‘Release Type Summary Report’ updates correctly when a release type is removed.
After user hides the dependent activities and bulk updates the independent activities, the activities grid still shows the dependent releases. The activities grid now correctly display filtered activities after bulk update.

Release Calender

Problem Fix
When the Blockout name or Environment Change Request Name is too long, the name overlaps with contents on the second line. The name has been restricted to the first line and can be viewed in full by using the tooltip or by double clicking on a release to view more details.

SSO Login

Problem Fix
When users use SSO to log into the application, the Timezone Offset is not updated. The Timezone Offset now correctly updates when users use SSO to log in.
