What's New: November 14, 2020

Super Contributor

We have successfully made platform enhancements on Saturday, November 14th, 2020, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. PST. 

Version settings as production data:

The following Versions settings have became production data:

  • Switchover

  • Edit From

  • Edit To

  • Notes

Model administrators can now change these settings in Deployed mode, meaning an ALM sync to update them regularly is no longer required. This update enables more efficient model management and greater flexibility when setting up spoke models using ALM. This feature also allows for greater contextualization for each spoke model and further business process automation.

What hasn't changed after this release?

  • Existing version settings will remain as is
  • Current, Actual, and Formula settings will remain as structural data

What has changed after this release?

  • Model administrators will be able to update Switchover, Edit From, Edit To, and Notes in Deployed Mode
  • These settings will not be changed during model syncs
  • Changes in the content of these fields will not be reflected in an ALM sync diff report
  • Model administrators can change the settings via:
    • Manual input in the UI
    • File import into version settings
    • Module import into version settings
  • When importing into version settings grid, Current, Actual, or Formula will be ignored as they continue to be structural data
  • Check out the best practices we recommend you to follow, to make the most of this new capability. 

Module names displayed in columns:

We’ve also added a Module Name column to blueprint view and the line items tab in Modules, located at the end of the grid. This is automatically populated with the module name. You can use this information to filter and lookup the line's module name once you have exported data to a third-party application.
