Plutora Release Notes for early March 2023

New Features

Deployment Plan Activity email dependency check

Navigation: Customizations > Email Notifications

Now, you can prevent email notifications for due or overdue deployment plan activities from being sent if the activity is not actually ready to be executed because of pending upstream dependent activities. Thus, preventing activities from being prematurely executed.

  • For Deployment Plan Activity email notifications, the following triggers now have an option to only send when upstream dependencies have been satisfied
    • Activity is about to start
    • Activity hasn’t started on time
    • Activity hasn’t ended on time
  • When the option is enabled, the application will first verify all upstream activity dependencies are satisfied before sending any email notifications
  • The application will also consider the dependency type as it relates to the either the Activity start date/time or end date/time. For example, if the upstream dependency is of Type F-F then the ‘Activity is about to start’ and ‘Activity hasn’t started on time’ notification will still send as that dependency Type only prevents the Activity from being Completed before the upstream dependencies is satisfied. It does not prevent the activity from being started
